Helios – 100 years of quality from Germany

Our family company was founded in Ilmenau in Thüringen by Traugott Bulle (1874-1952). Dr. Gerhard Bulle (1909-1999), the founder's son entered his father's company as Technical Director at an early age.


In order to escape impending dispossession, he decided, together with his wife Ursula Bulle (née. Dannehl) to try a new beginning in the West. Today the management lies in the hands of Uta Oetzel (née Bulle).
