of Augsburger Drahtseilfabrik go back to 1785. In those days
hemp ropes were manufactured in Lechhausen near Augsburg.
More than 100 years ago Adam Friedrich Kröner, Thomas Friedrich
Kröner´s son, adapted the craftman´s estabilshment to industrial
production of steel wire ropes.
Eugen Ulm moved the company to the outskirts of Augsburg.
Meanwhile the company now run by the 6th generation by
Thomas Ulm has been further expanded.
