BartelsRieger Atemschutztechnik GmbH is a medium-sized company based in Cologne. Our company was founded in Barmen in 1861 in the period in which the industrialisation of one of the leading German industrial metropolises was beginning. On the basis of its own rubber production, the firm specialised in eye washes and respiratory protection masks from the beginning in addition to medical instruments. With the establishment and strong expansion of the manufacturing and processing chemical industries on the River Rhine, BartelsRieger moved to Cologne at the beginning of the 20th century. Today we can look back on more than 155 years of company history and are among the leading manufacturers and suppliers of filtering and isolating respiratory protection technology.
