About igus®

Günter Blase began igus® back on 15th October 1964 in a double garage in Cologne. For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components.

However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic energy chain systems® and injection moulded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies.

Between 1985 and 2010, igus® has grown from 40 to more than 1,500 employees distributed between the head office in Germany and 26 subsidiary companies around the world. igus® also has representative partners in more than 27 other countries. igus® will continue to invest in expansion in the coming years, thanks to the opportunities for growth provided by modern materials.


igus® South Africa (Pty) Ltd had a humble beginning in 1998, in Jacobs, Durban. In 2011, the company relocated to a new and much larger facility in Midrand, Johannesburg to accommodate our expanded stockholding and customer support infrastructure. The additional space also holds a dedicated in-house ready-chain assembly area. Our close proximity to the N1/ N3 freeways and to our shipping service providers facilitates even faster deliveries and more than 80 percent of our deliveries are now made “within 24 hours.....or today”. An experienced team of sales engineers gives comprehensive coverage of the South African market as well as other countries in southern and central Africa. Regular training is undertaken locally and at group headquarters in Cologne, Germany; across a variety of disciplines, to ensure correct product and system specification as well as proper installation on every occasion.
