The company’s history

Tarpaulins are more than coated fabric - they allow inspiration and individual solutions of appliance.

The Bieri Weber Planen GmbH company looks back at a long history steeped in tradition.

In the early 19th century, the Robert Weber Mühlenwerke was founded. Their main activity consisted of delivering straw (e. g. for riding stables) trough the entire former German Reich using private sidings.

At that time, establishing the production of sail-canvases enabled delivering dry materials.
