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