D – This year the German-based company, Rheinmagnet Horst Baermann GmbH, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Horst M. Baermann laid the foundation stone for one of today’s leading European manufacturers and suppliers of permanently magnetic products on April 1, 1966 in his own basement with the further processing and customisation of permanent magnets for customers and the retail trade. The one-man business soon became an industrial company with its own strong brands. Numerous patents and own developments as well as its own laboratory with modern measuring and testing facilities for the product development all contribute towards the company’s strong position on the market.
In 2007, the company founder handed over the reins to his oldest son, Eckhard Baermann. The company purchased approx. 15,000 m² of commercial space in 2015 in the direct proximity of the company’s premises, to do justice to its expansion requirements.
