From an art foundry…

Margarete and Heinrich Diehl probably never imagined that the company they had founded in 1902 at Nürnberg's Schweiggerstrasse would some day have locations worldwide from Mexico to China. Memorial tablets, metal fittings and art castings – the family-owned business initially made a name for itself with these products. Within only a few years, the small business became an industrial company. After he had taken over management of the company from his parents in 1938, Karl Diehl pushed ahead with the company's expansion with steadfast determination to a global corporation.


Tradition & History

…to a technology enterprise

Taking care down to the smallest technical detail, a clear commitment to automated production and entrepreneurial growth have been and still are the mainstay of the Diehl philosophy. Carefulness and automation, precision and expansion: there is a reason why this continuity in overcoming supposed contradictions for more than 100 years still holds true: the company has always been family-owned since it was founded more than a century ago.
