The idea of producing utility items made of aluminum to make everyday life easier prompted Walther Zarges to found the ZARGES Company in 1933. He saw that aluminum held enormous potential outside the field of aircraft construction. And the foundation of the company in Stuttgart was the beginning of a ever-changing success story; from a small workshop to a global industrial enterprise. Ladders and cases made of aluminum, still the company’s core products today, have always played a central role in the company’s history, as have challenging large-scale projects. A tiny company with just two employees at the time of its foundation, ZARGES went on to become a medium-sized establishment which experienced a major boom, especially in the years after World War Two.

Walther Zarges had an unerring instinct for the market and ideas for the development of relevant products. For 85 years, the brand name ZARGES has been synonymous with continuous innovations in the fields of access, packaging and transportation and special constructions. ZARGES is the first light-metal construction company in Europe to be operating internationally from its headquarters in Weilheim / Upper Bavaria with around 800 employees and three production plants in Europe.

As a market leader in innovation, ZARGES offers its customers products and services that set standards in safety, durability and ergonomics. ZARGES products combine the multiple benefits of the light metal material aluminum such as high stability with low weight, corrosion resistance and flexibility of use. ZARGES has the right product for every need and also offers customized solutions. regardless of whether these are for the service, trading, skilled trades, or business sectors, or for private applications.

To better support its USA customers, ZARGES operates the Tech Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Center offers in-stock cases, customization and rapid, custom cushion fabrication. The Charlotte facility maintains dozens of product offerings that are available off the shelf, with many options ranging from casters to foam. For more complex challenges, packaging engineers are ready to develop custom solutions and to provide local support.
