Company history

LUDWIG KEIPER established a foundry and a factory for the production of agricultural equipment in 1919. - This was the origin for today's KEIPER-Fördertechnik GmbH & Co. KG.

After World War II the company's existing production was expanded to include automatic rope grabs and conveying equipment for agriculture. The success of these business activities resulted in further opportunities.

The wine-cultivating industry in the Nahe / Rheinhessen region also benefited from the economic upswing in Germany, so increasing investments were made in the expansion of wine production and harvesting technology. Helmut Burckart - owner and managing director of the company KEIPER since 1957 - took advantage of this opportunity for the company and enhanced the previous product line by "conveying technology for winegrowers".

In the 70s, KEIPER was the first company to supply the automatic-discharging grape trailer as a complete product family, thus becoming the market leader in the pomace/grape transport sector. This product section has remained an important part of the KEIPER product range.

To gradually reduce the economic dependence on one industry sector, existing contacts to the general processing industry in various fields have been extended and more and more complex conveying system solutionshave been offered.

This branch has provided the primary source of sales of KEIPER - and is continuing to increase considerably. Since 1984, KEIPER of Dipl.-Wi.-Ing. Rainer Burckart, the third Burckhart generation.
