Our Histo­ry

Werk­stät­ten GmbH is a for­ward-loo­king tra­di­tio­nal com­pa­ny that takes cou­ra­ge and inspi­ra­ti­on from its suc­cessful histo­ry to look for­ward resolutely.

Our Histo­ry

1965 — Werk­stät­ten GmbH is born. The com­pa­ny emer­ged from Rawe’s locks­mith shop.

Howe­ver, the roots of Werk­stät­ten GmbH go back much fur­ther than 1965. On 18 April 1934, a shelf com­pa­ny was foun­ded “just in case” by our for­mer share­hol­der, Nord­horn tex­ti­le com­pa­ny B. Rawe & Co GmbH. At that time, the com­pa­ny was given the name “Rawe & Co. Refi­ning com­pa­ny with limi­t­ed lia­bi­li­ty” and kept this until March 24, 1965, when the artic­les of asso­cia­ti­on were revi­sed and the pre­vious name was chan­ged to “work­shops with limi­t­ed lia­bi­li­ty”. Up to this point, the socie­ty had been in slum­ber wit­hout any acti­vi­ty. The object of the com­pa­ny was, as it lite­ral­ly sta­ted in the artic­les of asso­cia­ti­on, the “exe­cu­ti­on of locks­mith work in the field of locks­mit­hing, car­pen­try work in the field of car­pen­try as well as ser­vices and com­mer­cial tran­sac­tions of all kinds”.

In the mean­ti­me, Werk­stät­ten GmbH has grown into a group of com­pa­nies with a total of around 450 employees.
