Let us take you on a little journey through time and document the Bürklin Elektronik road from small shop to an international electronics retailer. Bürklin Elektronik was founded in Munich on October 1, 1954 by Dr. Hans Bürklin as a "wholesale and retail trader of radios, spare parts and accessories". The store was located in the city centre at 40 Schillerstrasse. The years of the economic boom (Wirtschaftswunder) allowed the company to grow rapidly: By 1960, there was already a branch at 42 Kölner Straße in Dusseldorf. With the rapid development of class electronics in the 60’s, Bürklin Elektronik increasingly focused on wholesale and mail-order electronic components. In 1962, the first extensive and independently-created catalogue was released, which from that point on, was published every two years. From then on bulk prices were included. In the 70’s and 80’s the Schillerstrasse site expanded steadily. The highly demand-oriented range, the fast delivery speed and top product quality all contributed to this. Since then, the company tag-line “The World of Electronics" underlined this claim.
In 1995, Dr. Hans Bürklin handed the company over to his two sons, Ralph and Achim Bürklin who changed the company to a general partnership a year later. In the same year, Bürklin Elektronik moved into a new building on the other side of the street, made up of three buildings.
Since the late 90’s, the company has offered its products online and has continuously expanded its online store. Due to shorter innovation cycles, the Bürklin catalogue has been published annually since 2006.
Because of the changes in mail ordering due to the Internet, Bürklin Elektronik had to centralize the company: The branch office in Dusseldorf was closed in February of 2009.
Two years later, the company relocated to the industrial area of Oberhaching near Munich. In March 2011, operations began at the new site. By improving the transportation connection and the optimal storage conditions, the company was able to increase its effectiveness in logistic processes. Currently, the warehouse contains more than 75,000 different products in over 10,000 square meters. Because of this, Bürklin Elektronik can handle most orders immediately. About 160 employees now take care of commercial, and increasingly, private customers.
Since the 1st of January in 2014, Bürklin OHG has operated as Bürklin GmbH & Co. In so doing, the family-run company has procured maximum flexibility for the future. The following family members may now participate in the company and offer their ideas.´
