COMPANY

PHILOSOPHY

With our decades of experience, Käuferle can offer just the right door solution, even for the most demanding requirements of underground garage doors, overhead doors or rolling doors for industrial and commercial use.

We have made a name for ourselves throughout Germany as a successful supplier of partition wall systems, tailor-made shelters and overhead or sectional door systems as well as windows and doors made of plastic and aluminium.

Our products are increasingly used as architectural design elements. It is not just the unique design and craftsmanship and extraordinary value for money that play such a crucial role, but also our economical high-tech production.

HISTORY

Since the founding of Josef Käuferle in 1953 to the present day, we have consistently aligned our broad product range with the needs of the construction industry, offering a complete package of services.
