The repair shop for phototecnic devices was founded in 1946 by the fotomecanic Anton Paepke near Düsseldorf. His strive was to obtain customer service contracts for repairs of products from some photo companies established at the time. He fastly developed close contacts to the enterprises of Leitz (Leica) and Rollei (Franke & Heidecke).

In 1955 there was the need to move the enterprises location to Düsseldorf. In the 60ies he expanded the customer service by contracts with the companies of Bosch/Bauer (filmdevices) and Metz (flashdevices).
