After completing training and studying business administration, Philipp-M. Bauer has been very successful in his parents’ business since 2003 – now in the third generation. With him, the Bauer scale factory has become an international trading company and together with his father, Franz Josef Bauer, the Bauer scale factory has found its way back to the leading manufacturers in the scale industry.

„I always wanted to become a “scale”! No firefighter, no astronaut and no cowboy! It fills me with being able to continue our family tradition.”

Furthermore, he attaches great importance to the domestic, exclusive manufactory and it is particularly important to him to use the most innovative and modern printing technology and to stand up to the state of the art in production.

There is a lot in the location Germany! “Global thinking, acting nationally.” – has since been his motto. With this high level of responsibility, we must continue to operate successfully in the future.
