The company was founded in 1989 by founder Franz Silberhorn.
The objective of the company was to produce cleaning equipment. The founder started the undertaking in his private two-car garage, and later established himself on the market.
Nowadays, Silberhorn not only offers standard solutions, but also develops highly complex customised solutions for clients of the automotive and machine engineering sector, for cleaning equipment or high-pressure water jet deburring equipment alike.
After expanding its production sites several times over the years, today the company operates its manufacturing on over 10,000 m2.
Today, the company ranks among the largest and most successful companies in its sector, and has 200 employees.
Service facilities in the US, China, Sweden, the Czech Republic and, of course, Germany top off the offering. An own sales and service facility in Emsbüren serves the area of Northern Germany.
