About Us

Since the foundation in 2010, we have been facing the exciting challenges of our customers as a young company with ingenuity and creative ideas. Due to our innovative strength, we receive enquiries and develop products for various industries that want to position themselves technologically for the future.

Our History

Foundation of BSS GmbH and realignment

As part of the reorientation and reorganisation, the company concentrated on its core competencies with today's four product areas. Since then, the focus has not only been on product developments in the field of building technology, but also on product developments for the areas of systems, machines, transport and valuables containers. Existing merchandise has been discontinued, and the development and manufacture of high-quality and unique products and solutions is the top priority.

Introduction of vehicle locking system VetraLock and bolt switching contact RK-Lever®.

The focus on product developments shows first results and the market launch of the vehicle locking system VetraLock and the patented bolt switching contact RK-Lever® takes place.

Start of the partnership with Lürssen

BSS starts a partnership with Lürssen, the market leader for superyacht manufacturing. As part of this partnership, the very innovative HD (Heavy-Duty)-Lock for exterior doors and hatches is developed.

Bubbling Innovations

This year sees the market launch of no less than three new products. With the RK-Smart II bolt switch contact, BSS is introducing another unique bolt switch contact for lock monitoring. This contact is characterised by a very simple, alternative installation method. Furthermore, a security seal for prisons and an electromechanical locking device for espagnolette locks are introduced to the market.

Nomination for Boat Builder Award

Due to unique USPs, our innovative HD (Heavy-Duty) Lock is nominated for the Boat Builder Award 2017 at the leading superyacht trade fair Metstrade in Amsterdam.

Explosion-proof Device

After the successful introduction of the HD-Lock ship in 2015, a variant of it was developed that can be used in an explosion-proof area.

BSS set for growth

BSS acquires a plot of land in Engen in order to be able to start planning a modern new building.

European patent HELIH® security radio window handle

BSS obtains the European patent for the security radio window handle.

Start of new building

The planning of the new building is completed and the implementation of a modern and future-oriented organisation begins.

Innovative access control HISAC®

Staying true to our commitment to develop unique products, we are finalising the product development of our unique access control unit HISAC®, with a focus on superyacht requirements.

BSS becomes a member of the KNX Association

The KNX market, which has been growing strongly for many years, is seen as a suitable environment for BSS products. The first step will be the integration of the HELIH® security radio window handle into the KNX environment.

Daniel Baumann

"BSS was founded to challenge and change existing thought patterns in the security industry with new ideas and innovative technologies. Every current and future BSS product serves to create added value. This means that BSS products support our OEM partners and installers to develop positively from an economic and technical point of view, without losing customer benefits (comfort, safety, damage prevention)."
