About us

Adi Richter und Max Richter


Our standard range of fastening technology, light pipes, LED accessories and protective caps comprises over 60,000 products. Most of them directly from stock. But if you have special requirements, we will work with you to develop exactly what you need. In plastic or in metal. Of course, you will receive free samples and comprehensive, technical advice. Customized solutions are no problem. Another advantage of our company size, which allows us to still be there for our customers personally.


Chronic from A.R.T.
















On September 16, A.R.T. was founded by Wolfgang Hettich and Adi Richter with headquarters in Gelting, Wolfratshausen near Munich.

After a difficult start-up phase and great support from our partners Bivar and Richco, we reach the profit zone.

In this year A.R.T. moves into the new office in Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße 35 in Munich. In the following years we build up a large customer and supplier base. Further manufacturers like Heyman and STEAB complete our range of products.

The A.R.T. gets a new logo. The colors blue and yellow become our new company colors.

In December we go online with our first website. This helps us to grow noticeably.

Wolfgang Hettich leaves the company at his own will, and Maximilian Richter joins A.R.T. as a new shareholder and CEO.

The new A.R.T. catalog is published. Since then, more items are constantly added and published.

A.R.T. has grown so much that it is bursting at the seams in its offices in Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße. It expands and moves into the new office at Kistlerhofstraße 70 in Munich.

ISO 9001:2008 certification is carried out. In addition, a redesigned website goes online.

This is an exciting year! For the first time A.R.T. is represented with its own booth at the Electronica 2012 show. Shortly before, the new A.R.T. catalog 2.0 goes online.

Right at the beginning of the year, A.R.T. gets a new ERP system. Towards the middle of the year our catalog 2.0 is printed. This has grown from 88 catalog pages to 260 pages. This was a very big step for us.

A.R.T. is getting a completely new IT landscape. This will equip us for the future and for the future requirements for our ERP software and our new homepage, which will go online next year.

Finally the time has come: after many, many hours and many grey cells the new website goes online! By the way, the business equipment was also turned upside down and A.R.T. presents itself in a new look including a new logo. We are quite proud!

Furthermore we are certified according to ISO 9001:2015.

The changes regarding the "Corporate Identity" are now also visible in our catalog. The new, simple design of the website has been adopted.

The year begins with teething problems worldwide. We have taken advantage of the quiet time and had our environmental management system certified to ISO 14001:2015.

Fittingly, we are one step closer to the paperless office: we are introducing a digital warehouse management system. An important step towards the digitalization of our processes!

ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificate

The quality management standard ISO 9001 is the most widely used and most important standard in quality management (QM), both nationally and internationally. ISO 9001 specifies requirements for the quality management system to be implemented by companies in order to meet customer requirements as well as other requirements for product or service quality.

ISO 14001 is the globally recognized basis for environmental management systems and covers all aspects for continuous improvement of environmental performance. The aim of ISO 14001 certification is to promote environmental protection and reduce environmental impact.
