History

Four generations of family business – The history of the J. Heinr. Kramer group of companies

Within four generations the J. Heinr. Kramer group of companies has developed from a coppersmithy to an internationally acting industrial service and technology group. Substantial customer relations as well as continuous development of employees and know-how made this transition possible. Combined with entrepreneurial daring and commercial prudence the group has continuously developed. Based on this successful history the future of the group will be shaped.
