You would like to know more about us? Here you go.

It’s good to know who you’re dealing with. This is not only true in private life but also very much in business. In the following sections you’ll find an introduction to pb fastener + components, our philosophy and selected milestones of our company’s history.

Based in Odenwald, at home in the world.

Our head office is in Odenwald, a region in the south-west of Germany, but we are at home all over the world. With an export ratio of almost 50 %, worldwide purchasing and partnerships having grown over decades, we make a conscious effort to maintain international commercial relationships.

We are always looking for new products. And for new solutions. For us this means: go West, not East. Because there are a lot of new things in the West meeting our quality requirements. We focus on innovative and not the cheapest markets. And we are really proud of our multicultural team, which does not only speak German but also English, Russian, Spanish and French.

Local ties, a down-to-earth attitude, and tradition plus innovation, global contacts, and an international mindset: this is how we have grown – from Odenwald into the world.

Values as a matter of tradition. Innovation as a matter of principle.

As an owner-run family business we rely on values. And on tradition. This is why we maintain a philosophy which has shaped our business from the beginning.

Our business operations are based on three pillars:

  • We ensure that our price-performance ratio is balanced and adequate.
  • You can rely on our products and our promises.
  • We remain true to our lines, develop the depth and not the breadth of our product range.

You might also say:

We don’t make any gifts. We don’t say anything that isn’t true. And we don’t jump on every bandwagon.

Sound. Sustainable. With good prospects.

We started as a family business. And we have remained a family business. Throughout the years the company has developed continuously and adapted to changing market requirements. Sound growth, product lines meeting an actual demand, and a positive team spirit ensure we will continue to be your reliable partner in the future.
