1976

The FLURO Gelenklager GmbH was founded in 1976 in Fluorn and Rosenfeld to create a separate product line of spherical plain bearings and rod ends. After just one year, all tools and equipment were ready and the first products were ready for delivery.

1979

The customer base in plant, bottling technology and the printing industry is expanding continuously, so that the first contacts were made to other European countries and Japan. In 1979, the newly built headquarters are based with 640 m² of floor space in the Siemensstraße in Rosenfeld.


1984

The manufacturing area milling is reinforced and the range of products from previously relubricatable rod bearings and rod ends is expanded to maintenance-free and rust-free. In addition, the foreign distribution is organized. From 1984 CNC lathes are used. The following year, the first expansion of the production area is necessary and quality management department can be created.


1990

In 1990, the second operation is an extension of 1970 m² in total. Less than five years later, a lack of space requires the next level, with a further office expansion.


1995 - 1999

The production is now supported by robots, in the administration is used a computerized system. Also, the guarantee of quality is improved by a CNC measuring machine. In 1997 the company receives the certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001. Since 1999 apprentices have been employed, first in the office, then in the technical area.


2000

In 1998, the succession has been prepared; the next generation will be initiated. In this case a further extension to the company by a further 2,910 m² in 2000 was carried out, which creates space for the fully automatic Kasto Langgut camp with 300 cassettes and the apprentice workshop with the latest CNC lathes and milling machines. Likewise, the production processes and the entire production flow will be redesigned and optimized. In parallel, the building is renovated. Logistik

2002

Promotional activities and strategic partnerships help to anchor the company's position in the world market. New products such as hydraulic rod ends and spherical bearings are commissioned in 2002 into the program. The machinery is supplemented by complete machining centers and developed a motorsport product production run.


2005 - 2006

2005 space for the production, management and fully automated distribution center is created with a new hall and building wing. The goods movement and storage system is inaugurated in 2006.
