Innovative lubricant solutions for wire drawing: Your expert for all aspects of lubricants and their application since 1881

August Neuhoff, the founder of Traxit.

Wire drawing and Traxit belong together: Our founder August Neuhoff, chemist and pharmacist, started to develop and manufacture specialty lubricants for the wire industry back in 1881. His focus and goal was to improve efficiency in wire production through high-grade lubricants to enable companies in the wire drawing industry to meet the booming demand of the time. The connection with the wire industry is also reflected in our name: Traxit stems from a Latin term, the literal meaning of which is “drawn”.

We have remained faithful to these values of our founder to this day and work every day on innovative solutions with which our customers can increase productivity and cost-effectiveness in wire drawing and save energy and resources.

Over time and on the basis of continuous growth, the family business became today’s Traxit: The world’s biggest manufacturer of wire drawing lubricants and market leader in the field, with a product range of 300 dry lubricants, wet lubricants and coating agents.
