Our History

Since our company was founded in 1931, we have committed ourselves to the development and large-scale manufacturing of high-precision parts on an utmost quality level. From the very beginning, our innovative capacity and our social commitment have been characteristics of our corporate history.

1931
Foundation

In 1931, Hugo Burgmaier (born in 1909) founded an electrotechnical factory and form turning plant, in which Bakelite plugs and turned parts for the electrical industry were manufactured. At that time, the company employed 30 people. After 1945, the French occupation troops totally stripped down the manufacturing plant. After many difficulties in reestablishment, production started again in 1947.

 

1958
Hugo Burgmaier buys factory building in Allmendingen

In 1958, Hugo Burgmaier bought a factory building in the main street of Allmendingen to expand his metal factory located in Schmiechen. The turned parts manufactured in Schmiechen were then finished in Allmendingen, where about 40 employees already worked in two shifts. His daughter Elli Burgmaier joined the company.

 

1968
2nd generation takes over the Burgmaier company

In 1968, the company’s founder Hugo Burgmaier died. His daughter Elli Schick-Burgmaier and her husband Bruno Schick took over the management of Burgmaier, which employed 67 people at that time.

 

1970
Modern Manufacturing Hall

In 1970, a modern manufacturing hall with office building was built and the whole plant was relocated from Schmiechen to Allmendingen. Fundamental modernization, the purchase and manufacturing of state-of-the-art machinery and the further expansion of the plant in Allmendingen increased Burgmaier’s importance in the automotive industry. Together with Hugo Burgmaier (born in 1953), his brother in law, Bruno Schick founded a hardening plant in the vacant hall in Schmiechen in 1977.

 

1986
Larger plant area in Allmendingen

In 1995, Karl-Hugo Schick, the grandson of the company’s founder, joined Burgmaier, after a physical division from the hardening plant (SHU) had taken place. He commenced his work in the management by establishing a new manufacturing plant in France. This affiliate “Precisdec” was founded in 1996 and had employed 8 people, whereas 155 employees worked in Allmendingen.
