Our Responsibility

People make the difference.

Our almost 200 employees, who are dedicated and tightly connected to the company, have only one goal: to satisfy you, our customers, one hundred percent. This applies to the highest of quality standards that we apply to our product and also for made-to-measure service and personal contact from person to person.


Our responsibility to the highest quality.

Quality does not permit any compromise. This has always been the maxim at Bals. The ISO-9001-certified production process in all factories ensures the well-known high product quality. This proof of quality is reflected in patents, certificates from German and foreign testing institutes, as well as the specification of Bals products by highly renowned companies. Innovation is an important quality benchmark for us. This way, we are always setting new standards with intelligent solutions that bring the user sustainable advantages - whether the MULTI-GRIP or the screwless QUICK-CONNECT technology.
