1979

Acquisition of the company by Hans-Joachim Schwarzbeck after death of his father Georg Schwarzbeck. Concentration on the production of planers.

1972

Development of the first multi-side planing machine of the type HOMS, a planing machine with a constant and adjustable top. These were good conditions for cost-effective mechanization and linking with other machine units, such as in the developing glued wood industry. For this invention, REX received the Protection of Design from the German Patent Office that protects the work from imitators. Only after the period was over, also other manufacturers were able to use the constant table principle.

1964

REX engineers develop the first REX-4-side planing machines series HO-4S and thereby opened up a new market area. At the same time the contact with the customers in glued wood, carpentry and sawmill industries were expanded.

1950s/60s

Development and production of predominantly modern joinery and carpentry machines, among them about 25,000 machines in the REX triple combination D 3/54-D.

1946

Establishment by engineer Georg Schwarzbeck; production of standard and combined machines. As a trademark for its products, they protected the name REX.
