Gate to the world
Founded in 1957 in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, our company moved in the 1960s to the immediate vicinity of Hamburg, to the beautiful castle town of Ahrensburg / Schleswig-Holstein. The PeakTech headquarters are now conveniently located directly between the Elbe and the Baltic Sea on the A1 between Hamburg and Lübeck. The direct connection to the Port of Hamburg enables our products to be shipped quickly all over the world.
