"Typically German" - in the best sense, that is true to the company Alberts from Herscheid: Durable and reliable, down-to-earth and conscientiously. These are just a few of the values that this family-owned company represents like hardly any other. This year, the hardware manufacturer celebrates its 170th anniversary in the fifth generation. So, Alberts is older than the Eiffel Tower and has existed longer than the Statue of Liberty. Gustav Alberts founded a bolt forge in Herscheid in 1852, which soon exported metal products all over the world and still manufactures at the same location today - made in Germany is more than just a marketing promise here. With 500 employees and internationally represented at five places, Alexander Alberts, the great-great-grandson of our founder, controls the destinies of the family business today. Meanwhile, Alberts' product range of more than 7000 items covers much more than just the hardware segment. DIY-Profiles, safety barriers and traffic technology as well as metal fences are even more part the core competences of this traditional company. After all, it is Alberts' burglary protection that deters and it is their fencing systems that keep uninvited guests and danger away from the property. This is valued by loyal customers who demand Alberts quality products from more than 8000 trading partners, in DIY stores and from specialist dealers in Germany and abroad. Alberts is strong in the Do-It-Yourself sector as well, because as home and garden experts they support do-it-yourselfers in their projects. Alberts is: Made to last.
