Rudolf M. Brittling founded BMR, which is based in Schwabach in Bavaria, in 1978. The initial focus of the business was on manufacturing products for Triumpf Adler office suppliers and the Lehmann-Eisenbahnen model railways. At the same time, the company set up its electronics manufacturing and developed its own electronic control systems. In 1988, BMR took over a big share of switch manufacturing at the Sasse group, providing itself with a second pillar of work. At this time, the production range included pump control systems for lubricating heavy good vehicles and battery chargers, for example. The incorporation of the frequency converter product area in 1990 was of crucial importance. Today, BMR GmbH is a specialist in the manufacture of static frequency converters for motor spindles in the power range of 100 VA to 3.5 kVA and for speeds of up to 150, 000 rpm and more, as well as for high and low voltage types. The company is the market leader in the low voltage range and serves customers not only in Germany and Europe but across the whole world.
