175 Years of Borsig Pioneer Locomotive Builder of Europe. When August Borsig opened his machinery building and iron casting company in 1837 in Berlin, probably no one suspected that out of would come one of the largest locomotive builders in the world. As early as 1841 August Borsig built the locomotive BORSIG with the builder number 1 after painstaking investigation in the typical English and American locomotive types for that time. This locomotive impressed people with an improved valve gear and axle system and on July 21, 1841 a contest against an English locomotive with a 10 minute head start. From this day on the victorious path of Borsig locomotive building began that ended in 1954 after more than 16,000 finished locomotives.
