Steinbrecher – a history of success spanning over 70 years
Discover new paths, take advantage of opportunities and forge connections: These are the principles that guide day-to-day work at Wittmund-based construction company Steinbrecher, fostering a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurial vision. They are virtues that have become tradition at the family-run company since it was founded in 1945.
Learning from experience in order to find new paths was an end in itself for founder Martin Steinbrecher and key to the survival of his new company. The freight forwarding agent from Gdańsk made the most of his expertise in wood conservation to ensure that consumers in Northern and Western Germany had a constant supply of energy: The maintenance and servicing of electricity poles was the young company's first area of business. In the early years, the main challenges faced by the company were the mobilisation of employees and the exchange of information between the company headquarters and the local sites.
Steady growth since 1945
The work originally undertaken by Martin Steinbrecher and his employees differs greatly to the services that the construction company provides today. This diversification of tasks was a logical progression from the company's initial areas of work. As the company grew, so too did the fields it worked in: The current business areas that Steinbrecher is active in include supply engineering, waste management, transportation technology, plant engineering and communication technology.
The company found a way to combine two things that are often very difficult to combine: keeping the tried-and-tested practices of the past while tapping into new opportunities. Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, it is more important than ever to react to the rapid developments of the modern world by drawing on the experience you have gained in the past. Steinbrecher currently has 350 employees at five locations in Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia. The Steinbrecher team tackles a diverse range of construction projects with complete dedication and exceptional expertise to ensure their successful completion.
