History

Our story – from a small carpentry business to door experts

Our company began 80 years ago as a small carpentry business established by Emil Glock. Today, neuform has two sites and more than 200 employees. We have consistently raised the industry bar in terms of the development and manufacture of smart door solutions. Our products combine craftsmanship and creativity, and have been deployed to great effect by numerous property developers and architects.

Here is a brief overview of our history, including innovations in the past, and our visionary ideas for the future.
