History

Bender Tribünen can look back on a long company history of over 70 years. With passion and enthusiasm for wood, Karl H. Bender, a carpenter, developed the first mobile wooden grandstand in 1948, which he prepared for an historic motorcycle race in Bad Schoenborn. This project became the cornerstone for the future of Bender Tribünen. Today the company is managed by the third generation and continues to stand for safety, quality, flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
