01.10.2018 Brabender: ready to face the future

Brabender Technologie, Duisburg, Germany, in September celebrated its 60th anniversary, an occasion marked by the official opening of the company’s new building incorporating a large combined technical centre and test plant. The jubilee event (60+1 years) was attended by customers, partners, employees and guests from the region. As general manager Bruno Dautzenberg put it: “Given that we had to relocate last year during ongoing operations, we simply postponed our anniversary celebration by one year, because we wanted to celebrate it together with you.” Employees from all over the world travelled to Germany, enabling almost the entire ‘Brabender team’ (recognisable in red polo shirts) to celebrate with their guests. 


The new technical centre comprises both the epicentre of the ‘K49’ building, where bulk material feeding trials demonstrated the opportunities that the new facility provides. Thanks to a second-floor test laboratory, filling and refilling processes can be simulated in addition to conducting feeding tests. Guests were able to witness at first hand what a negative impact small upstream conditions can have on the feeding process. “The topic of feeding sounds straightforward enough, but it is not as trivial as it looks and is seriously dependent on upstream processes”, Dautzenberg explained. 
Duisburg’s mayor Sören Link commented: “A global market leader; brand new, state-of-the-art corporate headquarters; and personnel that you can always rely on – this is how you could describe Brabender - ready to face the future.”
