Tradition and partnership

Even during the time of the Romans, when the “Limes” border rampart still ran through the area, the region around what would later become the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd to the east of Stuttgart had already devoted itself to the art of metalworking. It was only logical that it would achieve a considerable standard of living in the late Middle Ages with the production and sale of scythes across Europe. Gold and silversmithery can also look back over centuries of tradition in these parts. The first goldsmith was mentioned in documents dating to 1372. From the middle of the 17th century, this craft developed continuously into the defining industry of the imperial town at that time. Artisanal roots, skill and hard work have characterized the region around Schwäbisch Gmünd to this day.

That’s why the employees of Eberspächer Prototechnik are excellent craftsmen and at the same time familiar with the newest technologies of the 21st century. In addition, tradition and values continue to shape everyday life. The saying “One man, one word” still applies here – reliability and loyalty are considered high virtues. This is expressed, amongst other things, in the distinct partnership-style behavior on joint projects. We rely on a partnership that benefits both sides. We strive for long-term collaboration that gives rise to synergies. Because we know the expectations of our customers with regard to the delivery times, quality and nature of our products, without us having to study the technical specification each and every time. We naturally explain the advantages and disadvantages of the possible alternatives in terms of technology, material, processing and timing, and advise our customers within the context of a partnership-style transfer of knowledge.
