With our high-performance products we are covering the requirements of the tough daily workshop routine.
Blitz was founded in Schwenningen am Neckar by Matthias Schneider in 1872 as a repair workshop for precision machinery. However, the growth of the motor industry led to an increasing demand for vehicle repair tools. As a result, Blitz began to produce vehicle jacks, electric air pumps and air compressors.
By the end of the 60’s, the growing need for Blitz garage equipment and the further development of compressed air technology necessitated the move to our present headquarters in Braünlingen. Gradually, from the earlier machine repair business, the three current fields of expertise were developed:
Truck lifting technology
Compressed air technology
Tyre filling and measuring technology
Blitz employs the most modern methods of manufacture, utilising welding robots and fully automatic production facilities, resulting in a very high number of components being produced in-house. At Blitz we have highly qualified personnel in development, tool-making and manufacture, as well as our own training scheme. This allows us to aim for the highest quality standards at all times. This standard also applies to our sales, marketing and service departments, which has lead to Blitz attaining ISO certification since 1997.
The importance of marketing Blitz products world-wide was recognised at a very early stage, for example, taking part in prominent international exhibitions. Today, communication is as important as it has ever been and we are employing new mediums in bringing the name of Blitz to world-wide attention.
