THE COMPANY ALBRECHT BÄUMER
The Albrecht Bäumer GmbH & Co. KG has been a leading manufacturer of machines and plants for the foaming industry for nearly 70 years. The main focus of the company is on special machinery for the cutting, converting and transport of polyurethane foams and similar materials. We, as a medium-sized company, have been able to evolve from a pioneer to the world market leader in this field.
There are own sales and service offices in the USA, in Japan and China as well as a knife production as joint venture in South Africa. A factor of Bäumer's success is to be found in the vocational education and training; approximately 10% of the staff are apprentices and trainees. The average turnover of the last years was approximately 45 million Euro, of which 85% were generated by export business. The company is currently lead by Jan Henrik Leisse and Nina Patisson in the fourth generation.
Founded in 1946 and since then constantly grown together with this sector of industry, there are now about 300 staff members, mainly in Germany, who are responsible for the development, construction and production of a wide range of products. Our developments range from customized solutions to turnkey plants. Apart from standardized solutions, special customer-specific requirements are also implemented, as you can tell from our name “Fabrication of Special Machines”. We therefore consider it our task to develop and produce machines and plants together with our customers which guarantee the highest level of quality at reasonable prices and a high degree of productivity.
In order to have an important influence on future developments and to play an active role in this product field, a company is needed that actively and innovatively responds to the requirements of the market. With a great variety of products and a catalogue of requirements, this is a comprehensive task and positive challenge which we are happy to meet.
