A success story

Early on, in 1959, Bäumer cultivated and promoted business relations with the USA. At first there was a representation under the direction of Mrs. and Mr. Arzdorf. For 20 years, Arzdorfs served customers in the USA and Canada with sales and customer service before they went into well-deserved retirement and Baumer of America, alias BoA, was founded.

With the foundation of BoA in 1980, a separate building with warehouse and offices was built. Shortly afterwards, the branch was set up under the leadership of Bob Breu. Under his leadership BOA developed rapidly. The first assembly work was carried out at this location  on the HFS (hand operated machine for contour cutting). For customers in North America, BOA became an important contact partner for on-site services which included the carrying of spare parts, local phone support and US based technicians.

In 1990 Matthias Schuster, grandson of the founder Albrecht Bäumer, took over the business.

1992, the next move was to a larger location in order to be prepared for the upcoming further development of increased service. In the new facility we started the manufacturing of band knives which was a resounding success as we used our considerable knowledge already used in Germany and replicated this to produce high quality blades.
