Company Profile


In 1958 this family run business was founded. Its origin was whole sale with spare and wearing parts for vehicles and construction and agricultural machines. In the added-on workshop the flames-spray-technique and powder-coating-technique were being developed and used as a wear-resistant layer on various construction pieces. Since the beginning flight augers, auger heads and attachments were developed and manufactured. 


The new buildings are set on the green


This led to the foundation of the company ABF – technik with its main focus on drilling techniques. Due to the high craftsmanship of the employees, the company grew continuously. Regarding Mr. Siegfried Friedhoff´s far-sightedness and the quality of the products, the company became well known in all parts of Germany and in foreign countries. 


Due to lack of space all production halls and offices were considerably expanded. The ABF-Bohrtechnik doubled their production area.


After the last production hall expansion in the year 2000 the potentially dynamic company ABF-technik is situated on 25.000 m2 of which 8.500 m2 are buildings.

At the present time 150 employees are working in administration, construction, work preparation and production. These people are the ones who guarantee the quality and on schedule production of our products.


Due to excellent order situation, ABF reaches their limit of capacities. The company decides to build a new production hall. Summer 2007 is the big move. The production now takes place in a 30% larger hall. 


Due to the good order situation and changing product groups, a move to larger production halls with administrative buildings was due in 2017. The production areas were increased by approx. 30% and optimal possibilities were created.
