Company succession by Hans-Reinhold Körber
Since 1990, the company has been managed in the second generation by Hans-Reinhold Körber. The development into a future-oriented industrial company was realised not least by the modern high-bay warehouse available since 2001, through which the company can react flexibly to the demands of the market.
Relocation to the new, present-day operating base in Kirchlengern
Solid craftsmanship is still a tradition at KÖRBER today. The former craft business has developed into a modern industrial company. The current location with over 3,000sqm of production space was moved into in 1972.
Founding of the present company as an elbow production plant by Hans Körber
This entrepreneurial tradition was passed down through the generations, so that the master locksmith Hans Körber, grandson of Friedrich Körber, founded the elbow production in Kirchlengern in Westphalia in 1956.
First business activity by Friedrich Körber with a blacksmith's shop
The entrepreneurial activity of the family business KÖRBER goes back to the locksmith's shop founded by Friedrich Körber in 1871. Even then, the Körber family was known and successful for its craftsmanship and inventiveness.
