About Carl Stahl Kromer

Since 1917, we have been developing and producing high-quality spring balancers at our location in southern Germany for operating and lifting equipment for use in the manufacturing industry. With over 100 years of manufacturing experience, we are a established manufacturer for high-quality spring balancers such as tool balancers and tool retractors. With a large range of balancers, retractors and positioners in various designs, we offer our customers many different solutions for tool and load handling ranging from 0 to 300 kg. Their manufacture therefore requires a high degree of precision. In doing so, we are always guided by the principles of ergonomics and occupational safety in everything we do. Customer benefit comes first. The high quality of our tool balancers and tool retractors is a reflection of their long service life, high precision, and reliability – a quality claim that is supported and secured by our quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001: 2015. In order to meet changing market requirements, we check, document, and optimize our processes at regular intervals.

Since we manufacture a large portion of the individual parts for our products ourselves, we are not completely dependent on suppliers and are therefore able to send our balancers and retractors to our customers within short delivery times. As part of the Carl Stahl Group with over 70 locations worldwide and an established network of sales and service partners, we also offer our customers first-class services around the globe – be it spring balancer spare parts support or individual spring balancer product trainings.
