We are a medium-sized industrial company based in Gottenheim in the south of Germany. For many years we have been among the leading international manufactures in the field of spring balancers. Our companies history's goes back to the 19th century - in the long time of our existence, we have gained a lot of experience and knowledge, which is today reflected in the excellent quality of our products. In the year 2000, we became part of the large Carl Stahl Group with over 1,800 employee worldwide. We benefit from traditional medium-sized entrepreneurship and also from the secure structure of a global acting corporation.
Three criteria form the pillars of our corporate behavior:
We view shaping our policy to meet the needs of the market to the greatest possible extent as our obligation. This means that we always strive to maintain the company and its capacity in the long term; increase innovativeness thus enhancing competitiveness and always optimize economic behavior in all departments.
Climate change is the greatest challenge for humanity since the end of the Ice Age. There is now a global consensus that we urgently need to limit this man-made climate change. The success of the emission reductions depends very much on the voluntary and consistent action of the economy in the industrialized countries. So we too are ready to take responsibility for the world that we leave to our children and grandchildren.
For this reason, we have collected greenhouse gas emissions from our company and our services and offset the unavoidable emissions with the purchase of climate protection certificates. With the acquired certificates, we support a sustainable forestry project in Uruguay, certified by the Verified Carbon Standard.
Furthermore, our company is certified according to the latest requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. The certification confirms a functioning, process-oriented environmental management system.
The current Kromer product range encompasses high-quality handling devices that attract attention worldwide and are sold quite successfully. We manufacture spring balancers, zero-gravity balancers, air hose balancers, and positioners for various applications. Production is exclusively in our plant in southern Germany. Our products are excellent examples of the value expressed by the phrase “made in Germany”. All our cable hoists are of exceptional quality, as the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences confirmed in a multi-month study. Our products also have the advantage of being especially easy to maintain and repair. Wear parts can be replaced with extreme ease. Only Kromer products allow the cable to be replaced without disassembling the housing, for instance. Because Kromer manufactures a large proportion of the individual parts for its products, the devices can also be delivered anywhere in the world within a few days, and replacement parts remain easy to obtain for many years. Unlike many of our competitors, we are not dependent on suppliers.
Carl Stahl Kromer is currently made up of three divisions – Industries, Sports and Living. The industrial area is a special focus for us, and commands the largest part of our range of products. The two other divisions show how creative and varied the possible uses of our products are. Spring balancers can be used in the sports and fitness area, fix giant sun sails, or be integrated into innovative cabinet closing systems. The only limit is the imagination.
