Bauder ranks among the most important European manufacturers of roofing systems and products for sealing, insulation, greening and generating energy. The company generates annual revenue of EUR 525 million and employs a staff of 885 people. Up until now the family-owned company which dates back close to 160 years has manufactured its products at the main plant in Stuttgart, Germany as well as in five other factories.
