Our history dates back to 1888, when company founder Franz Keim took over his father's forge in Dommelstadl. We developed our successful Bavarian wire trap as early as 1892. In the early years we manufactured by hand in three shifts. In 1902, we started with impact traps to control mice and rats. Over the years, we invested in further development and introduced fully automatic machines. In the 1920s, our LUNA brand became internationally known.
In the 1930s, we expanded our range to include live traps. Since then, we have been producing basket and wire cage traps. We constantly modernise our operations and manufacture our own machines. From the 1960s onwards, plastic products were added. In the 1990s, we acquired the LUCHS and FOX brands and have been trading as DEUFA (Deutsche Fallenproduktions- und Vertriebs GmbH) ever since.
We master the challenge of maintaining the production site in Germany through technologisation and modernisation. We are proud of our more than 125-year history and look to the future with confidence.
