The history of our company goes back a long way. We have been producing sanding technology since 1955. Since the early 1960s, we operate under the name ARMINIUS. From the very beginning, there was only one standard for the development and manufacturing of our products: the requirements and needs of our customers. Inspired by the exchange with the regional furniture industry, company founder and budding engineer Manfred Brinkmann researched machine sanding processes. He was one of the first in the industry to recognize the full potential of the shift from manual work to automation, and his early commitment laid the foundation for the further growth of ARMINIUS. Today, we deliver high-quality sanding tools to the entire world – to meet the highest demands and with the same commitment to performance and service for every individual customer.
The decision to establish our own subsidiary in the USA marked a groundbreaking step for ourselves as well as for the woodworking industry in America. Since ARMINIUS Tooling Inc. was founded in Minnesota in 2004, we have played a decisive role in shaping the market environment. North America is one of our largest target markets of all – and so we are proud to be represented there with our own team of dedicated professionals. This is only one of the reasons why ARMINIUS profile sanding systems enjoy an exceptionally high reputation in the USA. Especially in the production of cabinet doors, our tools have set the standard for reliable and widely applicable sanding tools for any application.
The vast majority of kitchen cabinet manufacturers in the American market produce from solid wood. Both large and increasingly smaller producers use combination machines for profiling and sanding. It is therefore not surprising that our sanding tool systems have shaped the market in this field. After all, their versatility makes them ideal for tooling all kinds of multifunctional machines.
ARMINIUS guarantees best results – wherever sanding takes place!
As we have done over the past decades, ARMINIUS Schleifmittel GmbH will continue to operate to distribute the most advanced products in the field of sanding technology to international customers. Either directly or with our sales partners we are represented near you. Needless to say, you will also find us at industrial fairs around the globe.
As in many other sectors of the economy, competition in the wood and furniture industry is intensifying. Imports from Eastern Europe and Asia, for example, continue to increase price pressure on domestic industries and hold their own in such a competitive market environment. Companies must be able to satisfy their customers’ demands at affordable prices.
In addition, globalization also leads to positive developments. Since consumer expectations are converging worldwide, product variation generally decreases. Country-specific styles are becoming less and less relevant. Today, quality, functionality and developments in design are more decisive for asserting oneself in price competition. Those who succeed in aligning their production with these criteria will remain competitive at home and may even open up new opportunities abroad.
At ARMINIUS, we understand the challenges as well as the opportunities of your market environment. That is why we manufacture our high-quality precision tools individually for your needs. In the future, you will no longer need to make any compromises: Each of your products will meet consistently high standards and still be recognizable by your own individual signature. ARMINIUS sanding tools allow you to remain superior in quality and authentic in style. Many well-known woodworking companies have already realized this potential. In furniture, door and window manufacturing, for example, our tools have become an indispensable part of the most versatile production processes – from global players to small and medium-sized craft businesses.
