BIMAT was founded by the engineer Klaus Hibbeln in Bielefeld, Germany in 1976. Hibbeln used his extensive knowledge of the components industry to set up his company in Bielefeld in Ostwestfalen-Lippe region, one of the most important mechanical engineering regions in Germany.

As original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for rope sheaves with the well-known system suppliers of cranes, raw material extraction and material handling, BIMAT quickly achieved a high level of customer satisfaction by supplying first-class quality paired with products designed to meet requirements.

The product range was subsequently extended to include hook blocks, laminated hooks, stage machinery components and other related products. All products offered are developed, designed and manufactured by BIMAT.

Over the decades, BIMAT has supported the growth of many customers through its first-class service. Its long-standing partnerships with its customers have led to solid growth and made BIMAT a leading provider of original equipment and spare parts.
