Continuous development and a high degree of innovation have made us what we are today: Specialists in Cable.

Since 1926, Alfons Rüschenbaum GmbH has been a competent partner for the lighting, furniture and appliance industries. From a pure trading company for lighting accessories, we have transformed ourselves over the decades into a flourishing production company for cables, connector systems and complete solutions.

As a family-run company in its fourth generation, we now have one of the most modern and fully automated production lines for cable assembly and produce a complete range of assembled cables, internal wiring, connecting cables and connector systems at three production sites.

Our team, consisting of approx. 65 employees in Germany and another 70 employees in Asia, develops a solution tailored to the needs of each customer. The close cooperation with international testing institutes as well as the quality management according to DIN EN ISO 9001 guarantee highest quality and safety.
