Foundation of the company Pleuger by Friedrich Wilhelm Pleuger in Berlin, Germany to build underwater pumps with wet (water filled) engines. His developments have been patented.

The subway in Berlin will be expanded. At the time, Pleuger achieved its first economic success by installing the world's new Pleuger submersible pumps operated by direct coupled wet (water filled) submersible motors. They were used to lower the groundwater for the Berlin subway construction project. New large-scale projects follow, such as the construction of the Moscow subway and complex drainage systems in France, Mexico and Argentina. Special developments in the Pleuger construction also made it possible to promote high-quality and germ-free drinking water from great depths. Pleuger pumps are becoming recognized worldwide.

The Pleuger works in Berlin and Greitz are destroyed or expropriated during World War II. In autumn 1945, Friedrich Wilhelm Pleuger realizes the new start with a small repair workshop in Hamburg-Altona.

Relocation to the new plant in Hamburg-Wandsbek, where Pleuger Industries is still located today.
