Company history

Founded as a family-run business in Altshausen in 1979, DreBo Werkzeugfabrik is now renowned as one of the top manufacturers of carbide-tipped rock drilling tools and chisels. 

Having started out with less than 1000m² production space and a handful of staff, DreBo now employs almost 400 people at its locations in Altshausen, Schmalegg und Pittsburgh (USA), devoting an area of 10,000m² to production alone. In 2005, SAP software was introduced as a key operational tool; in 2007 a new staff canteen was built; and in 2014 a chisel production plant was integrated into the Altshausen site, along with the opening of a new logistics center in Schmalegg. Ever-growing market demands, an increasing variety of products and new innovations have seen DreBo expand its capacity accordingly. In 2015, the new test and demonstration center was opened in Altshausen.
