At the beginning of the year 1968, Herbert Cremer founds the company CREMER Industrieofenbau, based in Düren, Germany. Steady growth of the young company marks the subsequent years
In 1982, further expansion for the international clientele as well as company reorganising grows essential. Harald Cremer, the elder son of the company founder, becomes CEO of CREMER Thermoprozessanlagen GmbH. To this day, he heads the company. Ever-increasing market requirements for new and efficient equipment require a development team independent of production
A second company is founded: POLYFOUR – a development and distribution ltd. for industrial furnaces. Ingo Cremer, the younger son, becomes its CEO. The cooperation between CREMER and POLYFOUR guarantees future-oriented, modern, and reliable plant designs. In 1986, new facilities are erected and inaugurated in Düren-Konzendorf. Facility equipment and structures are optimized for the requirements of manufacturing complete state-of-the-art furnace systems
In 1990, a technical center is set up and equipped with our own test facilities, allowing the simulation and analysis of furnace operating conditions. Since 1992, a metallographic test laboratory has been affiliated to the technical center
In 1997, the company gives itself a new and efficient inner structure according to DIN EN ISO 9001, codifying optimum procedures. Our Quality Management System is „alive“ and undergoes continuous updating
In 1998, more than 100 staff members are employed with CREMER and POLYFOUR. With their many years of job experience, each one of them contributes to the company success. Both branches secure their junior staff by apprenticeship in all respective metal-working and electrotechnical professions.
Contacts to nearby RWTH Aachen and FH Jülich secure junior academics. Low employee fluctuation ensures sustained success as extensive staff experience is exploitable. High flexibility and modern machines and equipment as well as up-to-date data technology during the complete process from procurement via design (CAD) to order service enable the company to satisfy highest customer standards
In 2000, customers worldwide made us respond to progressing globalisation: foreign subsidiaries and distribution partnerships were established for our markets in Europe, Asia, America, and Russia
In 2001, another manufacturing shop for medium-sized furnace plants was put into operation. The footprint of this new hangar covers 800 m², where even complete furnace systems can be tested
Ingo Cremer becomes EPMA chairman
The Aachen-Düren area is a science region. Since our foundation in 1968, we are closely tied to the internationally renowned Technical University of Aachen (RWTH). In 2008, these ties are intensified.

„Proof of Concept“ plant goes into operation, focussing on the MIM and AM business (Additive Manufacturing, 3D print)
The company CREMER HIP Innovations GmbH (managing director: M. Knauff) is founded on the 20.03.2018. The purpose of the company is the manufacturing, world-wide marketing and sales of equipment for hot-isostatic presses and cold-isostatic presses for use in hot-isostatic and cold-isostatic processes.
