DREI-S-WERK was founded in 1850 in Schwabach, Germany for the manufacture of textile needles. In 1906, production was switched to grammophone needles and from 1940 to precision ground parts for industry.

Through the various economic challenges in Germany and worldwide over the last 167 years, DREI-S-WERK has endeavoured to identify trends at an early stage, develop and efficiently produce high-performance products.
