We at BW are lodged in the world of big machining centres and located in the city with the world’s smallest street.
130 years of BURKHARDT+WEBER company history and 130 years headquarters in Reutlingen. This gives us the opportunity to share some knowledge about our home city with you.
Did you know: Reutlingen has the narrowest street in the whole world? The "Spreuerhof-Street", dimensioned with only 31 cm width, is titled and listed in the Guinness Book of Records since 2007. The alley was established after a fire blight in 1726. Keeping up the title was at stake when one of the adjoining houses became ruinous and the demolition was planned in 2012 – the danger was averted! Thanks to a restoration, the world record remains in Reutlingen – just like BW.
A genuine citizen of Reutlingen, Bernd Vottler, Vice-Manager of the Electrical Design at BW, has personally ensured himself, that Reutlingen is justified to hold the world record.
