55 years of motion plastics!

igus celebrates its birthday! We are happy that our motion plastics are still making motion applications easier,  while saving costs and improving technical performance in many areas of use. When Günter Blase established igus in October 1964, he said to his customer: "Give me your most difficult part and I will find a solution." This sentence is still applicable to us today but with an added emphasis on one fact: igus imPROVEs. Our aim is to improve all kinds of movement and to prove this beforehand. This is the only way we remain young but grow more mature at the same time.
