Reifen Burkhardt was founded in 1959. The family business, which at that time was handled by two people over 200 square metres, was located in the centre of the city of Bruchsal, on the site of today's community centre.
A major step in the further development and growth of the company took place in 1970, when the company headquarters were relocated to the Stegwiesen industrial park. The c. 2,100 A1:C15 site at 14 Murgstraße is still the location of the Burkhardt company's Tyres and Vehicle Service today. After the second son entered his parent's business, and in order to meet the needs of the firm's continuing further expansion, the company's structure and legal status was changed in 1986 to the GmbH & Co KG forms of today.
In 1990, the company site was further expanded through the acquisition of the neighbouring property (12 Murgstraße), incl. a warehouse, and today it covers approx. 5,000 m². Due to the extensive construction and extension measures, which have been carried out continuously since then, we are today able to advise our customers in modern, attractive premises and ensure that all services we offer are carried out with the utmost expertise and care, in line with the latest state-of-the art technology.
In 2005, the company premises were expanded by the addition of warehouse at the back of the site (Kinzigstraße). Over 17,500 m², we have a stock of approx. 100,000 tyres and are equipped with modern loading
terminals for all logistics challenges in the wholesale and retail trades.
In 2012, the move to the new logistics hall, with an attached administrative wing, was on the agenda. This meant that our storage capacity was increased to a total volume of approx. 250,000 tyres.
