On April 1, 1966, engineer Klaus Blaurock founded the company ING. KLAUS BLAUROCK based in Brendlorenzen near Bad Neustadt / Saale. The focus was on the production and installation of blinds, especially for retrofitting during renovations of old buildings.
The company expanded its product range by aluminium roller shutters which were produced at the headquarter. The sales activities were also being expanded during that time. Due to the high demand of Blaurock products, a new manufacturing and administration building was built in Salz, where uPVC windows are manufactured. A milestone in the company's history is the invention of a window with integrated roller shutters.
Thanks to its innovative and consistent quality policy and focus on customer satisfaction, Blaurock continued to record strong growth rates in the eighties and was continuously expanding its market share. Blaurock is proud to have received numerous national and international awards during this period.
The innovative product - the window with integrated roller shutters - maintains its unique position in the market. In 1996, the traditional family owned business was sold to an international investor group. The buyers founded Blaurock GmbH.
In 2000, technical production manager Rainer Reichert took over the management of the company as CEO. Blaurock also discovered and stepped into new markets abroad. In October 2001, Blaurock became the first company worldwide to pass the "hurricane test" for uPVC windows with special insulating glazing in Orlando, USA. In 2009, Blaurock presented a new version of the window with integrated roller shutters which is powered by solar energy as the first company worldwide.
One of the biggest investments in the company's history was the establishment of a new production line for the high quality windows "made in Germany". The occasion has been the "energeto" profile, which Blaurock now uses for uPVC windows with and without roller shutters. Due to the increasing demand of windows and doors made by Blaurock, the company has opened a showroom, in which window and door products are presented.
Katrin Hemmerlein, daughter of CEO Rainer Reichert works for Blaurock since 2003. At the start, the trained Industrial Business Management Assistant worked as an authorized representive for the company. Since 2016, she is part of the management, together with Rainer Reichert. In addition to accounting, she is responsible for the HR of the company.
