The Story

"Back then, we started like many dedicated founders before us: as a company working out of a garage. Albeit with the small difference that our garage was a converted cowshed," recalls Günther Zimmer. "That's where we first worked out and manufactured our first products in 1980."

Günther and Martin Zimmer, owners of the Zimmer Group, continue to work things out. However, they no longer do so alone. They are supported by a large development team in state-of-the-art offices and factory workshops for business markets around the globe. Their south German knack for technology, insatiable curiosity and pioneering spirit have brought the brothers a long way. Today, they lead the Zimmer Group together and employ over 900 people. With turnover higher than €130 million annually. And double digit growth for several years now.

Services ZIMMER Group UK Limited Provide

Over 30 years' experience for a start. Not to mention the drive to continuously improve technologies and components and develop innovations.

Handling technology

In handling technology, workpieces or tools are manipulated automatically within the industrial sector. The term "handling" is derived from the human "hand" and highlights how versatile the movements of the objects can be.

Human Robot Collaboration

Human-robot collaboration opens up new possibilities for efficient, flexible and optimized production. Conflicting market requirements have to be taken into account such as increased depth of customization amid shortening product lifecycles
