As long-term employees of the former Seppeler Stiftung (Rietbergwerke) in the area of service and evolution of brake testers, their daily operations includes the vehicle test technology.
With the sale of this business area by Seppeler, those two decided to share their individual experiences with a new business and started 1994 the “Brockschnieder und Baumjohann TDS GbR”.
At this time the focus was on service for workshop equipment, the construction of specialized machines as well as the creation of the technical documentation. At the same time many renowned manufacturers were supplied with controls, sensor technologies and system solutions in corporation with the INES Elektronik GmbH Company.
Mr. Baumjohann specialized his service area on sale, installation and the service for test bench technology. There was a change on name in 1999 from Brockschnieder / Baumjohann TDS GBR to Brockschnieder / Baumjohann TDS GmbH & Co. KG. At the same time the head office was transferred to Rietberg’s old town.
Since 2006 the TDS Rietberg works in close corporation with the Cartesy GmbH in Mühldorf, who work on the sectors vehicle test technology, electronic and sensorics.
Because of the increasing staff and the desire to unite the offices with the storage facilities, the TDS moved to the Brüningsweg 23 in Rietberg in 2011.
At the end of 2015 the directors and owners Mr. Brockschnieder and Mr. Baumjohann decided to separate the business areas. At the same time there was a change on name from Brockschnieder / Baumjohann TDS GmbH & Co. KG to TDS Rietberg GmbH & Co. KG under the management of Thomas Baumjohann.
The TDS focuses on the sale of workshop equipment, parts trade and service now. The TDS covers the entire country with their service network through the growing number of service technicians and the close corporation with various companies and partners. In this constellation the TDS doesn’t only offers an excellent service, but support their customers with innovative and future oriented products. That the reorganization was the right decision was underlined by the study “Die Wachstumschampions 2021” (“growth champions 2021”) on commission by the Magazin Focus. The growth champions are listed as the 500 businesses in Germany, which achieved high percentual strong growth in sale between 2016 and 2019. The TDS earned the 88th place out of 15.000 participants and even was ranked at the 5th place in the category “Großhandel” (“wholesale”).
In 2020/21 we put a new service program into operation to offer our customers further an excellent service in the future.
The TDS Rietberg GmbH & Co. KG is constantly working on the future.
