History

Beginnings

Company founder Otto Neumeister was always a step ahead of his time. His pioneering spirit kept the company on its successful course since it was founded in 1929. The first product from the Schwabian tinkerer from Neuenstadt am Kocher was the ”Otto“ grease gun produced from1934 to 1936. Ideas for tail-lifts and special cylinders emerged in the time of the economic miracle.

Expansion

Its innovative strength and adaptability allowed the company to grow continually. The resumption of telescopic cylinder construction for Dautel-Kipper made the first operational expansion urgently necessary in the middle of the 1950s. In the years that followed, Neumeister Hydraulik added products such as 3-piston pumps and single-acting cylinders to its portfolio. Thanks to heavy demand, the company continued to expand at the old site up to the 1990s; production, storage and administrative capacities and staff numbers were all growing.

 

... And then

Relocation

The flourishing company required further operational expansion. As the old site could no longer offer any more space, the Neumeister management decided to relocate the company’s headquarters in 1991. After a two-year building phase, the company moved to the ”Autobahn West“ industrial area – today, more than 300 staff work in a total area of16,700 m2.
