Nobody is perfect
And we would never say that. And like us, you distrust anyone who tries to sell you perfection! But we have always learned to perfect ourselves. After all, Gustav Obermeyer has supplied the packaging industry with well over 1,200 tube filling and sealing machines since 1945.
Wow! That is quite a lot! And now we have almost achieved it: perfection.
Our company history
Foundation by Gustav Obermeyer Maschinenfabrik, Plauen. The founder is extremely entrepreneurial and isn’t bad at what he does at all. He develops the company and steers it through tough times. We want to continue this tradition!
Production of turbines and textile machines. We still have original drawings!
1,000 years of dictatorship are over and we’re forced to hoist the Red Flag. Tube filling machines and pharmaceutical machines. Here, we’re getting closer to our current field of activity.
The company is incorporated into the Nagema Corporation. Erich Honecker and his comrades finally have the company in their grasp. They give the company a truly socialist name – a soulless monstrosity – “Spemafa“. We change this after the turnaround to “SpeMaBa” due to an acute lack of imagination
Supplying the 1,000th tube filling and capping machine. Not bad for our small company.
Re-foundation with the range of filling machines and packaging machines; Mr D. Buchner and other experts are responsible for the automation.
SpeMaBa showcases its production range at Interpack. However, it is less profitable, because until that time we have only focused on the domestic market.
Takeover of (what was still) SpeMaBa by Dr. Thomas W. Richter, the sole shareholder. Reconfiguration of the previous obscure model policy. Consideration of the tradition as a German company and resumption of export activities.
Extension of the model range – now including all kinds of packaging machines – and cartoners, too! Since 2008, we have once again been trading under the name of Gustav Obermeyer.
Complete renovation of our company building. The former ramshackle building is turned into a pearl at the heart of Plauen. Our oval machines become our standard platform, and our tube filling machines our centrepiece. And we celebrated our anniversary of 120 YEARS.
Our machines are being copied by even large companies working in the German machine construction industry – a proof for how creative we’ve become! Our export share is continually increasing.
Delivery of our first oval tube filler.
We are ISO 9001:2015 certified.
