A successful company story

Wilhelm Bauer has been refining metallic surfaces since 1945. More than 75 years of success.


Wilhelm Bauer founded the company in 1945, which is still family-run today. From the very beginning, the company specialized in the processing of cylindrical workpieces. The processing technology used to process our customers' rolls has been perfected over the decades. After Hans Bauer joined the company management in 1965, he successfully developed the business and contributed to the international orientation of the company.

In the 1960s, the company expanded its service portfolio. Several large grinding machines were purchased and the hard chrome plating plant was expanded. Since then the customers could benefit from the complete offer of mechanical and galvanic processing.

For more than 30 years the company has been able to grind rolls at operating temperature (e.g. 200°C). In this technically highly sophisticated way, calender rolls in particular can be processed even more precisely. The continuous further development of our grinding technology enables us to process rolls with the highest precision. In addition, innovation matt surfaces complete the product range.

In order to respond to the constantly growing demands of the market, the company acquired a larger location in the 1990s. On this site the company can react to future developments in the best possible way.

High quality processing, short delivery times and absolute reliability are values that make up our company and are appreciated by our customers. Close and trustful cooperation with our customers is part of our corporate culture. This enables us to realize individual surfaces for special requests according to customer requirements.
