About the company
High quality, customer-oriented service and over 200 years experience and development in the field of fiber processing
We process a glass fiber produced especially for us for polishing, erasing, brushing and grinding products.
With over 200 years of experience and development in the field of fiber processing and customer-oriented service, we are today a leader in this field.
The glass fiber made exclusively for our purposes is not identical to the general known glass fibers. It is manufactured without CFCs. Due to its fiber diameter, it can not be inhaled and is therefore in a health-safe area. It was therefore not included in the group of dangerous substances.

Before and during the First World War, Julius Greiner-Adam experimented with the possibilities of producing glass wool and glass fiber in an industrial way.
First World War - the complete production is inoperative.
In 1916, Julius Greiner-Adam was drafted into the army service. In 1917, however, he was called back home, after his father was killed in war and he now has to continue the business.
