Our success story

In the mid-1950s, Albert Berner left his hometown of Künzelsau in southern Germany at the age of 21 to visit his first customers with a trunk full of screws. Almost 70 years later, the one-man operation has grown into an international group whose name stands for quality, expertise, innovation and a hands-on mentality. And although much has changed, some things have remained the same: the name at the top, the enthusiasm for our customers and the passion for screws – along with 100,000 other products.

Our founder on the early days of his career:

Things started happening pretty quickly. I was surprised how everything suddenly got going – many others were too, they had never thought I could do it.​
