    In 1930 Wilhelm Bott established a mechanical workshop in a mill near Gaildorf – the birthplace of today’s Bott Group. In 1940 the business was already employing 70 people, and today Bott is a leading manufacturer of workshop equipment, in-vehicle equipment and workplace systems. We offer a wide range of professional equipment for industry and craft trades; our storage systems are designed to enhance efficiency in workshops and mobile service. Bott now employs some 944 people world-wide (2015) with a turnover of €122 million (2015). Today Bott can look back on more than 80 years of company tradition. This is both a challenge and a responsibility, but also a mark of acknowledgement.

Bott products are manufactured to provide a long service life and as a result are not expected to enter the recycling chain as early as many competitor products. Product durability and long service design life are therefore key to our recycling targets, and material specification is a key element in all R&D activities
      Waste is an inevitable by-product of manufacture and whilst every effort is made to eliminate it through design, some waste streams do exist and have to be managed...
