In 1925 the Kramer brothers started to develop and produce mowing machines and Tractors in Gutmadingen (Germany). These were the first ones built in Germany and a revolution in agricultural work. The company headquarters was moved to Überlingen (Bodensee) in 1952.
In the time from 1957 to 1958, a special department for industrial and construction machines was set up. It caused a sensation, when Kramer introduced in 1968 the first German wheeled loader with four-wheel drive and equal sized tires. A lot four-wheel steered machines followed this example.
In 1973 a great change happened, when the company decided to close down the business field "traktor" and focussed on construction machines. In 1987 the focus was adjusted to the four-wheel steering. This development was the basis for the construction of the first Teleloader.
In 2001 the merger between Kramer-Werke GmbH and Neuson Baumaschinen GmbH took place. Within this year, the company was renamed to Neuson Kramer Baumaschinen GmbH.
In April 5, 2007 the company began to build a new 30 billion Euro facility in Pfullendorf. The new production site has an are of about 16 hectare and the facility itself offer 160.000 square meters of production space. The annual production capacity rises from 1000 to 6000 machines.
