Friedrich Ischebeck founded the company in 1881, and from then right up to today the company has undergone a momentous development. Adapting to the different circumstances of different countries plus our current focus on our three core business segments of geotechnical, formwork and trench shoring systems mark the point we have reached so far in our long and successful history:
a family business
with global success
FRIEDR. ISCHEBECK GMBH is a family-run business now led by managing directors Björn Ischebeck and Dr. Lars Ischebeck. The creation of secure jobs is what drives us. Our strong ties with the region and the responsibility that goes with that for the people of that region have supplied the basis for successful international expansion.
This gave us the strength to develop our global operations, which have provided us with a wealth of experience and enabled us to invest further in our production plant at Ennepetal close to Germany’s industrial heartland.
the evolution of the company
from its beginnings to the present day
Blacksmith Friedrich Ischebeck purchases a small drop forge and tools factory specialising in vice production in Ennepetal, Westphalia.
Ernst Ischebeck builds a malleable cast iron foundry for his own production, but later also produces castings for others in large and small batches.
FRIEDR. ISCHEBECK GMBH becomes involved in civil engineering for the first time. Production of the first steel trench struts. Later, trench shoring systems in steel and aluminium are added to the product portfolio.
The company expands its range of products to cover buildings and structures. Firstly, telescopic props in steel, in the meantime pioneering propping and floor slab formwork systems in aluminium.
The first ISCHEBECK geotechnical solutions appear on the market. Having begun with TITAN grouted anchors, the core product today is the innovative TITAN system, which can be used as micropiles, anchors or soil nails.
from the 1990s onwards
International expansion through subsidiaries and sales partners. Initially just within Europe, later with representatives all over the world.
The company realigns its business segments and corporate structure. The result is a focus on geotechnical, formwork and trench shoring systems to ensure a focus on strengthening and developing innovative product areas in the future.
