We grow with exciting topics

Since the foundation of the company in 1890 until today the goal has remained the same: the highest quality in products and services. Nevertheless, the circumstances, tasks and challenges have changed, of course. By focussing on our core areas of expertise, we have long set new standards for innovative clamping technology - driven by our own development, the greatest possible flexibility and passion for individual solutions.

All this is only possible with committed and contented employees. Respectful interaction with others, personal development and measures for the wellbeing of each individual are therefore values that matter to us.

Looking back into the future

The success story of AMF began with the founding of the company by Andreas Maier in 1890. An international company quickly emerges from the lock manufacturer in Fellbach, which develops into a competent partner for many sectors through specialising in different systems of clamping technology. Technologies that contribute towards process optimisation and increase in productivity have more significance than ever today as competitive advantages. With modern team structures and focus on our core areas of expertise, we will assume responsibility for new challenges and exciting projects in the future, too.
