During the more than 80-year history of the company, numerous product brand names originated under the company name Bohle. Silberschnitt and Veribor have become representative for entire product types.


In 1936 the glass cutter that was developed by the company founder Josef Bohle was registered under the brand name "Silberschnitt". Today Bohle develops, produces and sells a large range of glass cutting products under this brand name and is leader in the world market.


Under the brand name Veribor, suction lifters for the transport of diverse materials and objects have been developed, produced and sold since 1950. Today the Veribor product range includes lifting and carrying devices from single-cup pump-activated suction lifters to industrial quality lifting equipment with carrying capacities up to several tons.


With the development of tungsten carbide in the early 1950’s, a new material became available whose superior resistance to wear makes it ideal for the production of glass cutting wheels. The brand name Diamantor was registered in 1952 and today Bohle offers glass cutters as well as a comprehensive range of diamond tools for smaller machines under this name.


The brand name Verifix represents the Bohle range of UV bonding products. For many years the company has been intensively engaged in the area of glass bonding and today is the technology leader in this field. From fixation and dispensing aids to UV adhesives, the Verifix range includes all the products needed for high quality and durable glass bonds.
