From forging blacksmith vices to an important manufacturer of construction systems.
At the beginning of the 20th century the smoke from the chimneys was clearly visible.
The Friedr. Ischebeck GmbH company located in Ennepetal, Germany, was founded in 1881 from Friedrich Ischebeck who started a tool factory and drop forging factory; the Ischebeck family has been operating their own foundry since 1912.
In 1936, Ischebeck started the development and manufacturing of Trench shoring for Trench Lining Systems; from this product they later developed today’s Steel and Alu-Lite Trench Lining Systems.
Since 1950, at the Ennepetal facility, Ischebeck began the development and manufacturing of Steel Post Shores; this further resulted in logical program enhancements, among others, the development of aluminum shoring systems and components.
In the 1980’s the Titan Injection Anchor was developed and patented. Since then, the threaded hollow bars have been used in the geotechnical field in different applications. They are used in special anchoring and restructuring of buildings, for new foundations and for rear anchorages and slope stabilization. The Friedr. Ischebeck GmbH is today one of world leaders in this Geotechnical technology.
This Family owned Company is now under the Leadership in the fifth generation with the Managers of, Dipl. Wi.-Ing. Björn Ischebeck and his brother Dr. Lars Ischebeck.
The Friedr. Ischebeck GmbH currently has, worldwide, 19 Ischebeck daughter Companies and is still expanding.
