igus said it uses its innovative polymer materials to develop products that provide creative solutions and exceed customers expectations while delivering fast, accurate service.

Günter Blase began igus AG in 1964 in a double garage in Cologne, Germany. For its 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-molded 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.

Between 1985 and 2016, igus grew from 40 employees to more than 2,950 distributed between its head office in Germany and 35 subsidiary companies around the world. igus also has representative partners in more than 35 other countries. The company said it will continue to invest in expansion in the coming years, thanks to the opportunities for growth provided by modern materials.
