About ABUS Security Tech Germany

From the family-owned cellar forge to a globally successful security company

1924, in the small town of Volmarstein near Wetter and Ruhr: this was a time when people still went to the cinema to watch silent films, when children played on streets that were barely passable by car and computers were still pure dreams of the future. But in 1924, August Bremicker and his sons achieved the masterpiece of launching a padlock that was groundbreaking for his future and that of his family: the "Iron Rock".

At that time, the family started developing and producing padlocks in the basement of their home. With strong competition: in Volmarstein and the surrounding area there were many such smithies at the time. But August Bremicker and his sons were so successful that the company quickly grew to 300 employees. So that in 1929 the production facility in Hegestraße in Volmarstein was bought, which is still in operation today.

Safe, reliable, stable - this is what the name ABUS stands for

When August Bremicker and his sons first started up their own business producing padlocks in the small village of Volmarstein, Germany back in 1924, they would have found it difficult to believe that one day their slogan would work its way around the world. The business, which started out in the cellar of their family home, has blossomed into a corporate group with global operations.
