FUHR celebrates 70 years in business

In its 70th year of existence, “FUHR GmbH & Co. KG” is still a family-run, medium-sized mechanical engineering company and produces with more than 50 highly qualified employees ultra-modern wire rolling plants for customers on a total of 5 continents.


FUHR gets an modern & international corporate design

The figurative trademark of the new company logo speaks a clear language: FUHR produces “rolling mills” for its customers, the two stylised rolling rings and the wire running through them illustrate this in a very puristic way.


The new plant is being built

In the close-by town of Steinheim, the new business premises of “FUHR GmbH & Co. KG” are developed on an area of 10.000sqm. This includes a ultra-modern and efficient production hall with its own grinding and painting unit as well as an architecturally sophisticated administration building.


Change of legal status in "Karl Fuhr GmbH & Co. KG"

Over the years the company has grown continuously and against the background of a constantly changing competitive environment the company is restructured. From now on it operates under the name “Karl Fuhr GmbH & Co. KG”.


Helga König-Fuhr takes over in 2nd generation

At the age of 44, the oldest daughter of the company founder, Helga König-Fuhr, takes over the management of Karl Fuhr KG as managing partner.


The partnership "Karl Fuhr KG" is established

The company name is changed to “Karl Fuhr KG” and, along with this, the legal form is changed to a partnership, with Liselotte Fuhr and her 3 daughters as personally liable partners.


Death of the company founder

The company founder Karl Fuhr dies  from a heart attack at the age of 50. He leaves behind his 3 young daughters as well as his wife Liselotte, who from then on runs the rolling machine factory.
