Our history

For over 60 years, our name has stood for quality in wear and corrosion resistant coating – and to this day Baaske is considered a specialist in galvanic surface finishing.


In 1962, Rolf Baaske founded our Cronenberg family business and opened his first plant in the Unterkohlfurth district. In the beginning, tool parts were initially nickel-plated and chrome-plated, and later also electroless nickel-plated and hard-chrome-plated. Further specializations such as cylindrical grinding and technical yellow bronze were added in the following years, and the focus shifted more and more to technical electroplating as protection against corrosion and wear. We have permanently developed and expanded our range of services to meet the needs of our customers. Today, our services also include combination coating and mechanical processing such as pre-grinding, polishing, finish grinding and industrial polishing.


After the death of Rolf Baaske in 2004, Baaske Oberflächenveredlung GmbH was founded, which is innovatively managed by daughter Antonella and her husband Calogero Lo Bue. The previous years spent together with Rolf Baaske are of great value to the new management.


In November 2008, the Unterkohlfurth site is closed and undergoes extensive remediation with the participation of the company. The Kohlfurth operating division is taken over by LB Oberflächentechnik GmbH and moves to Herichhauser Str. 57 g. The unchanged management and the retention of the technical know-how by the previous qualified staff ensure the usual quality and delivery reliability. New, modern and larger plants allow additional capacity expansions.


Today, Baaske Oberflächenveredlung GmbH and LB-Oberflächentechnik GmbH are modern, internationally active companies whose coatings can be found all over the world wherever maximum corrosion and wear protection is required. On safety-relevant components that are often not visible to the end user.
