Company Baumert & Dabergotz GmbH

1926

How it all began:
In January 1926, Paul Baumert founded the company Paul Baumert Auto-Kühler und Karosseriebau at Jungfernplan in Hannover. In the autumn of the same year, work began on the construction of the company's first own workshop building and a residential building at Peiner Straße 15 in Hannover-Döhren.

How it all began

1937

Oswald Dabergotz joined his stepfather's company as a journeyman. From then on the company was called Paul Baumert u. Sohn. In March of the following year, Oswald Dabergotz passed his master's examination as a plumber and fitter before the Hannover Chamber of Trade. Oswald Dabergotz now joined the company as a partner, which was henceforth called "Baumert u. Dabergotz Auto-Kühler u. Karosseriebau, Klempnerei u. Installation". In the same year, Oswald Dabergotz married his wife Maria, who worked in the company until her death in 1993.

Oswald Dabergotz spent the war years at home, as he was considered indispensable. The business was considered a supplier to the municipal transport company, the post office, the fire brigade and the police.

During the war years, daughters Bärbel, Rosemarie and Katharina were born, and the long-awaited son Oswald Junior was born in 1949.

1951

In 1951, the company's property at Wilmerstraße 5 was acquired.

After the successful construction of the residential building and the production hall, the company moved to much larger premises. New machines for the production of tube coolers were purchased. The first small series for Hanomag and Krupp vehicles got off to a good start and were even delivered to Africa. In 1966, the second construction phase of the production hall was opened and machines for the construction of tanks could be purchased. The first series production of fuel tanks for John Deere Lanz took place.

1967

In 1967, Paul Baumert passed away and Oswald Dabergotz Senior took over the sole management of the company. The children Bärbel, Rosemarie and Oswald Junior were now firmly attached to the company, their work commitment more important than ever in preparation for a later takeover.

Radiator construction and container production ran parallel to each other. Reflectors for street lamps of the Hellux company were also produced in Wilmerstraße.

1982

In 1982, Oswald Dabergotz Senior passed away and his children Bärbel and Oswald took over the management of the company, which now became Baumert u. Dabergotz GmbH. The main turnover now comes from container construction, companies such as Deutsche Grove, Demag and Liebherr from Austria were and still are among the customers. And of course many end users. Cooler construction turned more and more into service.

In May 2017, Lars Buschkowski, master metalworker and welding specialist, took over Baumert and Dabergotz and was appointed as the new managing director. Bärbel and Oswald Dabergotz retire into a well-deserved retirement, but are always on hand to offer advice and support.
