Company History

 

In 1953 Peter Erbel founded Pero (Peter Erbel cleaining equipment and surface Technology) in Königsbrunn near Augsburg.

 

Already in the 50s Peter Erbel achieved a first Major Innovation for the cleaning of components with the help of solvents. By using a previously unknown deep-frozen technology, he has succeeded in halving the enormous consumption levels of solvents and therefor reduces odors. The first major step to protect human health and Environment in the parts cleaning was completed.

 

With this revolutionary new feature Peter Erbel laid the foundation for a successful company development, which thus also become an obligation. He launched a series of innovations which were constantly evolving and will. A variety of innovations from PERO, since the company was founded, take a decisive influence on laws and policies in the continuing improvement of cleaning systems in terms of protection of human health and Environment.
