From a garage to Kanban logistics

Many important innovations and concepts arise from humble beginnings. Fritz Stiefel Industrie-Vertretungen GmbH was founded in a garage in 1962. Fritz Stiefel, who established the company in Waiblingen near Stuttgart, began with screws, bolts, clamps, lubricants and accessories for truck brakes.

Initialized as a pure trading set-up the company gradually included power unit construction, kanban logistics, module assembly and special mobile kits for companies - all in close accordance with the requirements of our customers. Since 2005, pipe-bending systems have become an additional part of our portfolio.
