Ready for the Future - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
In the small town of Gummersbach, in 1874, determined to supply their initial factory effectively, the Steinmüller brothers formed their own railway system through the mountainous landscape, declaring their first innovation and cementing it in the Steinmüller history books. That railway sits as the bar we all aspire to reach. To leave the company and world in a better state than we found it, and only through constant innovation, can this goal be achieved.
