In 1917, the co-founder of Salamander, Jakob Sigle, laid the foundation stone for a long company history in Türkheim, Germany. At the start, the company was associated with the Salamander shoe brand. In the 1960s, for example, heels made of injection-moulded PVC were manufactured for women's shoes at the Türkheim site. Indeed, bonded leathers are still being produced in Türkheim using recycled materials from the shoe industry. For more than 40 years now, Salamander has been developing uPVC profiles for windows, doors and many other window-related applications in close cooperation with its customers. Today, this is still the main branch of business within the group. The technical parts and profiles and tool manufacturing divisions are the other business sectors within Salamander Industrie-Produkte GmbH.
Concerted diversification combined with market-oriented product development has allowed us to develop a stable company structure over many years; Salamander is now known as one of the leading European system providers for highly energy efficient uPVC window and door systems.
