In April 1929 the pipe mill Röhrenwerk Kupferdreh was founded by Mr Carl Hamm at the present company headquarters in Essen, Germany. In the meantime the company is in the guiding hands of the family?s third generation.
Over the years the pipe mill could also establish its knowhow in industries not specific to mining.
For example, Kupferdreh clientele today includes utilities, the engineering industries, and general pipeline engineers.
The founding of the geotechnics division in 1989 was a step in an all new field of operations. Since then the geotechnics division has been successfully producing and selling geological exploration equipment and test systems for engineering geology, the building industry, and institutes of higher education.
Sales of geotechnical products were extended to all of Europe, Africa, and South America.
In the meantime our high-quality test systems are acclaimed and utilised all over the world.
