BOGE embodies more than 110 years of tradition in the German city of Bielefeld. For generations, we have merged the values of a medium-sized company with the principle of dynamic growth. Intelligent engineering, forward-looking solutions and quality, custom-made in Germany – these are the values BOGE has stood for since the very beginning.
FROM A PIONEER OF COMPRESSED AIR TO A DRIVING FORCE IN TECHNOLOGY THROUGH 4 GENERATIONS
A successfully established fourth-generation company looks back over an eventful history. The BOGE book illustrates the complete story of this family firm, from its founding in 1907 – the time of the Kaisserreich (German Empire) – to the present day. Alongside the courage and ambition of its founder, the book discusses the shared goals of the four generations: to sustain the firm’s original values and grow it in line with the times. Created by author Jürgen Büschenfeld of the “Verlag für Regionalgeschichte” (Publishing House for Regional History) in Bielefeld, this richly illustrated book also incorporates interesting insights into the changing Bielefeld metal and mechanical engineering industry.
Otto Boge founded the company in 1907 and began by selling the door closers that his brother was manufacturing at the time. Following the First World War, Otto quickly made a name for himself producing speciality tools for the emerging automobile industry and motorbikes. Finally, BOGE became a specialist manufacturer of compressors and compressed air appliances – and is a worldwide leading provider in the sector today.
