About the employer

Günter Blase began igus® back on 15th October 1964 in a double garage in Cologne.  For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components.  However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic Energy Chain Systems® and injection moulded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers.  These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies.
