INNOVATIONS
THAT MAKE HISTORY

PROBIG GmbH and PROBIG high tech products GmbH are highly specialised companies in the field of innovative non-metallic technologies. The companies evolved from the RÜBIG group of companies in Wels, Austria.

Founded in 1946, RÜBIG has been a leader in the fields of die forging, heat treatment and hardening for decades. By the end of the 1980s, the huge potential of special non-metallic construction materials had been recognised. 

PROBIG® has been designing, developing and producing high-quality chain and flight scrapers, bottom and surface scrapers, flotation scrapers and API scrapers using high-tech non-metallic materials for more than 20 years, and has become a pioneer in the use of this technology.

The company name was created from the surnames of the two founders, Dr Paul Rübig and Augustin Perner: Perner and Rübig became PROBIG®.
