FRIWO: Power supplies and charging technology at the highest level

FRIWO AG from Ostbevern, known in the past primarily as a manufacturer of plug-in power supply units in lower power classes, is developing with great strides in a completely new direction. In recent years, the company has already continuously shifted its strategic focus: away from simple, easily copied power supply solutions and price-driven markets with high competitive pressure from Asia, towards intelligent charging and battery technology for demanding and emerging markets such as cordless tools, medical technology or electro mobility. Now FRIWO is completing the transformation from product to system provider.

Configurable systems from a single source

The basic idea that FRIWO is pursuing with the new strategy is to offer a configurable overall system from a single source: optimally coordinated products that can be adapted via software according to the needs of the customer and their application. In this way, the customer is not only spared high development costs and the nerve-wracking coordination of several suppliers, his time-to-market is also drastically reduced through the use of an integrated system.

The company grows: Acquisition of Emerge-Engineering

FRIWO’s approach as a system supplier has not only been about chargers and batteries for some time now, but goes far beyond that: In December 2018, FRIWO took over Emerge-Engineering GmbH, a real technology jewel, and acquired market-leading know-how regarding the software-based configuration and control of electric drives. This is an ideal addition to the existing portfolio, as the combination of the two companies’ products results in complete electric drive trains including the associated charging technology, which can be used in all of FRIWO’s target markets.

History
History

FRIWO AG accompanies a long and eventful history: The world’s first plug-in power supply unit is invented in Ostbevern. FRIWO becomes the world market leader in the field of chargers for cell phones. The cell phone charger division is sold. From now on, the company focuses on power supplies for demanding and future-oriented markets with special requirements. The transformation from a pure product supplier to a software-oriented solution provider for high-tech power supplies and drive systems takes place. All these are just a few cornerstones of our past development.

Milestones in our Company History
2019 An entirely new corporate identity
In the course of its transformation into a software-oriented technology company, FRIWO adopts a completely new corporate identity.
2018 Takeover of Emerge-Engineering GmbH
FRIWO’s approach as a system supplier has not only been about chargers and batteries for some time now, but goes far beyond that: In December 2018, FRIWO took over Emerge-Engineering GmbH, a real technology jewel, and acquired market-leading know-how regarding the software-based configuration and control of electric drives. With the takeover, FRIWO is taking the step from a pure product supplier to a system provider, offering complete electric drive trains including the associated charging technology from a single source.
2017 Vertical integration
FRIWO takes over a production of transformers and chokes from a supplier in Vietnam. This adds an important product component to the company’s value chain. The number of employees grows to over 2,000.
2016 Grand Opening Vietnam
Opening of a state-of-the-art production facility in Vietnam. The high-quality production clearly sets itself apart from the local standard and features, for example, an ESD floor, nitrogen soldering systems, and automatic testing and inspection systems. With the new location, FRIWO is also well equipped for future growth.
2015 Focus on target markets “TIME”
Through the targeted development of know-how, FRIWO is becoming a leading supplier in the technologically demanding and future-oriented Tools, Industrial, Medical and E-Mobility sectors.
2014 A first step towards a system concept
The company starts manufacturing battery packs and thus acts as a provider of charging and battery technology with complete solutions from a single source.
2013 Breaking through the sales barrier
FRIWO generates sales of over 100 million euros for the first time
2009 FRIWO AG is established
CEAG changes its name: CEAG AG becomes FRIWO AG.
2008 New structures: Sale of the FMP division and change of ownership
As part of the standardization of chargers for cell phones to the USB standard, the FMP division is sold to the Singapore-based company Flextronics.
In addition, Cardea Holding GmbH, a subsidiary of VTC Industrieholding GmbH, acquires the majority shares in CEAG AG from the previous main shareholder, DELTON AG of Bad Homburg. The company headquarters of CEAG AG is relocated to the FRIWO headquarters in Ostbevern.
2006 Listing in the General Standard
The shares of CEAG AG are officially listed in the General Standard
2002 FRIWO is divided into two divisions
FRIWO Gerätebau GmbH is divided into the two business divisions FRIWO Mobile Power (FMP) and FRIWO Power Solutions (FPS). While the FMP division specializes in chargers for cell phones, FPS develops power supply solutions and chargers for a wide range of other markets.
In the field of chargers for cell phones, the company will later be regarded as the world market leader with a global market share of around one quarter.
1996 Friemann & Wolf becomes FRIWO
The company name “Friemann & Wolf” is officially changed to FRIWO. Today’s subsidiary FRIWO Gerätebau GmbH is established
1983 CEAG AG takes over Friemann & Wolf
Entry into the external power supply business: The company Friemann & Wolf is acquired by CEAG AG.
1977 Listing of CEAG AG on the stock exchange

Sustainability
Our understanding of sustainability

For us, sustainable management means taking into account all perspectives of sustainability within the orientation of our entrepreneurial activities. As a listed company, we strive for profitable growth that minimizes the utilization of resources as well as negative impacts on the environment, while considering employee interests and needs.

Our efficient products make a contribution

Changing lifestyles and usage habits are leading to an ever-increasing demand for efficient power supply technology and specialized energy supply systems for mobile devices of all kinds. FRIWO considers itself as a leading company for the development and production of assemblies and systems for these applications. In close cooperation with our customers, we are continuously working on making our products both more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. In doing so, we not only comply with all legal regulations for energy efficiency but also strive to always exceed them. Reducing the overall dimensions of our products reduces material usage and therefore helps to conserve valuable resources.

Protecting the environment is an obligation for us

We take the protection of the environment very seriously and therefore have not only implemented an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001 at our own manufacturing sites, but also ensure that our business partners in equipment manufacturing set up and maintain an environmental management system also. This enables us to identify risks in good time, prevent damage and are able through continuous improvement to reduce the impact of our products and production on the environment to an inevitable minimum. We are aware that we handle problematic substances within the production of our equipment and that these substances later become part of these products.

Employees guarantee innovations

Our well-trained employees at all our sites play an essential part in guaranteeing that FRIWO can continuously present innovations and produce gains in efficiency. The fair treatment of all employees means therefore more than a matter of fact to us – it is a key success factor. In-house training programs, pay that is exclusively linked to the respective job description as well as fair opportunities for advancements are examples of the measures that we implement.

FRIWO stands for fairness and integrity

Compliance with legal regulations at the various locations by all employees as well as ethically impeccable behaviour by all is indispensable for us. The same applies to our business partners: We do not tolerate legally and morally dubious practices.

Future growth is based on a solid financial foundation and a clear strategic focus: Tobias Tunsch has been nominated as Chief Financial Officer of FRIWO AG from March 1st, 2022 and is responsible for the areas of Finance, Controlling, Accounting, Taxes, Procurement, IT, Investor Relations and Sustainability. Tobias Tunsch has already taken over CFO-specific tasks for FRIWO since May 2021 as an external advisor in the finance department.

Compliance
Basic Features of the FRIWO Compliance Management System

The management of the FRIWO Group puts a special emphasis to compliance with laws and regulations for the corporate group throughout the group, and equally to observance of the company’s internal guidelines and requirements (corporate compliance). Correct behaviour as well as integrity and fair dealings with our business partners are key imperatives at FRIWO. FRIWO aims at effectively preventing white-collar crime and actions detrimental to the company through preventive measures. A key element of the Compliance Management System (CMS) at FRIWO, in addition to the web-based FRIWO whistleblower system, is a compliance training, which intends to ensure fundamentally compliant behaviour in all areas on the one hand and on the other hand places particular emphasis on the topics of prevention of corruption and compliance with antitrust as well as capital market law.

Organisation

The Compliance department is the responsibility of the Chairman of the Management Board of FRIWO AG. Key aspects of the CMS are decided by and the responsibility of the entire Board of Management (hereinafter referred to as the Management Board). The Management Board regularly informs the Supervisory Board about compliance-relevant issues. The Compliance Officer is appointed by the Management Board of FRIWO AG and reports to the Chairman of the Management Board. He supports the Executive Board in bundling and supervising the compliance measures implemented by the Executive Board. His tasks include defining and further developing FRIWO’s corporate ethics with regard to compliance and conducting compliance training. The Compliance Officer also handles compliance inquiries and compliance cases for the FRIWO Group. In the foreign subsidiaries of the FRIWO Group, the respective managing directors are responsible for observing and ensuring compliance. They may appoint local Compliance Managers to take care of the regional implementation and processing of compliance measures. Compliance Managers act as competent contacts in matters of compliance in the respective subsidiary and report to the Compliance Officer.

Whistleblower

In order to identify violations at an early stage and avert damage, we rely on the assistance of our employees and business partners as well as the public. Our employees are encouraged to contact their supervisor, the human resources manager or the compliance officer if they suspect that they have been involved in any harmful activities. In addition, FRIWO offers all whistleblowers the opportunity to report tips via the protected electronic FRIWO whistleblower system. With this web-based communication system, FRIWO offers whistleblowers the opportunity to report harmful activities at any time and from any location, either by giving their name or anonymously. The system can be accessed from any Internet-enabled PC and functions like an electronic mailbox. It thus allows a confidential online dialog between the whistleblower and the person handling the report. All reports are carefully examined and further measures are initiated in justified cases. Here you will find our electronic whistleblowing system.
