From its humble beginnings in 1924 with founder August Bremicker and his sons producing padlocks in the cellar of the family's home in the village of Volmarstein, Germany, ABUS has evolved into the worldwide leader of padlocks, bicycle and motorcycle locks.
Named a German Brand of the Century, ABUS has been building locks in their own factories since 1924. Backed by four generations of family knowledge with teams of in-house engineers and tool makers, ABUS uses the highest quality materials, rigorous testing methods and constant innovation in their quest to make the best locks in the world.
Today Company employees are the bearers of the worldwide success of the ABUS Group. They continually confront new challenges. They inspire and respect each other; they thrive on teamwork and empowerment. In a climate of openness and social fairness, our employees in Germany and around the world work daily to enhance the ABUS quality standards. Each has personal responsibility and a mutual goal: to experience, enhance and impart a feeling of security. All ABUS personnel work in this spirit to create and enhance the trust that is bestowed on the ABUS brand worldwide - and they make a decisive contribution to the ongoing ABUS success story - from padlock to bicycle and motorcycle locks.
In 1924 August Bremicker founded ABUS and began crafting locks in his shop in Wetter/Hege Germany and made his first lock - "The Iron Rock."
