Our profile

More than 86 years of tradition and innovation have made ASKUBAL a high-profile brand. Now in its fourth generation, the owner-run family firm is ideally equipped to face the future.

Our corporate philosophy rests on three pillars:

  • high-quality products
  • meeting custom requirements
  • rapid, worldwide distribution

We claim to achieve peak performance in all areas. Our production is flexible. This permits an output of over 6000 standard versions, plus special components made to order and just-in-time production.
This success is founded on our Development Department’s decades of experience, in close co-operation with national research institutions.

Personal and environmental safety are always priorities for us. We seek to hand on a viable and environmentally and socially responsible business, in the best possible shape, to future generations.
