Betzer - 100 Years
Since 1917 Betzer has been developing and producing screws and cold formed parts of high quality.
The Betzer family founded the company in 1917 and managed the business over two generations. In 1966 the company was acquired by the Hoffmeister Group and the business has been successfully continued and further developed.
At the beginning Betzer manufactured high-standard screws. After the takeover in 1966 the production was consequently modernized and gradually converted to the development and manufacturing of precision screws and cold formed parts made to customers’ specifications. With the development and production of thread-forming screws for metals and plastics a pioneering new product range was successfully launched in the late 1970s. Our comprehensive know-how in the field of individual customized product developments guarantees the success of the company – today and in the future.
The state-of-the-art manufacturing and a team of highly motivated and qualified employees are also in 2017 the basis for the future growth after 100 years of Betzer.
Today, in the anniversary year the shareholders would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and employees for the trustworthy cooperation and for their strong contribution to the mutual success.
