The Brand with Tradition - for your Success

August Rüggeberg develops, produces and markets tools for surface finishing and cutting materials under the brand name PFERD. The horse jumping through a hoop dates back to the founding years and has been our trademark since the end of the 19th Century.

More than 200 years ago, everything started with the manufacturing of files and rasps in a small forge in the Westphalian town Voerde. In search of skilled workers and favorable transportation conditions, the factory was relocated in 1897 to Marienheide, near Cologne where the company August Rüggeberg was founded.

Since then, the family business  developed into one of the leading manufacturers in the tool industry. Innovative ideas and products are the key to success. In the tool industry, the PFERD brand is intrinsically tied to August Rüggeberg and synonymous with outstanding quality tools and abrasives, high performance and productivity.
