1976 Restart with prospects

The business of the traditional company went quiet sluggish and remained as such until an owner reorganization was complete. The city Furtwangen expanded and bought a portion of the companies´ property. Felix Jaeger used these funds as to acquire in the 70´s the foundation the BKS belongs now to the family Jaeger and Ursula Hepting.

1982 Farsightedness vision

As Odin Jaeger started, only 20 years old, his activity in the BKS company with design and construction of gearings for vertical adjustable operator´s positions. From 1984 on Odin Jaeger took over the technical leading, using 18 assistants. He recognized the great opportunities in the area of vertical adjustable operator´s positions addressing an ever growing need to solve ergonomic needs in the marketplace.

1990 Customer´s specification
