40 years of PFERD in Hermeskeil

The PFERD production site in Hermeskeil recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. The second German production site of the long-established company was formally opened on 19 September 1975.

The company celebrated its 40th anniversary with employees, retirees, Mr. Hülpes (mayor of the association of municipalities), Dr. Queck (mayor of the town of Hermeskeil), Mr. Schmidt from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) and Mr. Wölfel from the Industrial Union of Metal Workers (IG Metall). Several generations of the Rüggeberg family took part in the festivities as well.

Thanks to recent modernization measures, including a new coat of paint on the façade, the building was shining and together with the marquee and numerous other attractions, it offered an ideal setting for this special occasion.

The history of the production site began with the manufacture of mounted points. Today, real PFERD classics such as COMBIDISC®, POLINOX® and COMBICLICK® tools are manufactured in Hermeskeil. Thus, the site contributes greatly to the success of the Rüggeberg Group.

The company is particularly proud of the employees who worked in Hermeskeil right from the start, building up the site, and therefore also celebrate their 40th anniversary with PFERD this year.
