The eibe History

eibe - a family business with global appeal

Starting as a small carpentry business, eibe is today an internationally successful family-owned company. The main manufacturing site is still located in Röttingen: The manufacturing base in Röttingen is one of the most modern development and production facilities for play equipment in Germany. Here we produce - exclusively for you - eibe ORIGINALS. We consistently follow our goal: Creating play equipment that supports children, challenges teenagers, accompanies adults and offers great fun in physical activity. 

eibe's evolution of becoming a play equipment maufacturer

The name "Eichinger" was first mentioned in the church records of the town of Röttingen in the 15th century – the Hartmut Eichinger Company stems from this original carpentry business. It was in 1975 that the name was officially changed to eibe. Today eibe is one of the leading manufacturers of playground equipment, with more than 300 employees worldwide, engaged in the design, production and sales of the high quality products of eibe. 

eibe remains in the family

Tilo Eichinger has been the owner of eibe since 2005, maintaining the successful family tradition, whereby company ownership is passed from generation to generation. Today CEO Tilo Eichinger holds office as chairman of the BSFH (German Federal Association of the Manufacturers of Play Equipment and Recreational Centres, e.V.). For his successful business activities he won the "Grand Award for Medium-Sized Enterprises" of the Oskar Patzelt Stiftung in 2011 and was finalist at the "Entrepreneur of the Year" competition (Ernst&Young) several times.
