Since the foundation of a small locksmith and repair workshop by Arnold Heinrich Meyer in 1913, an economically strong medium-sized company has developed in over 100 years. Through constant innovation, it has been possible to successfully transform the tradition of processing sustainable raw materials such as straw, coconut and jute, which has been anchored in the Twistringen region for centuries, into modern production processes.
