PINTSCH BUBENZER is the result of a strategic realignment of the drive technology corporate area of PINTSCH BAMAG Antriebs- und Verkehrstechnik GmbH, Dinslaken. In July, 2007 the subsidiary of Schaltbau Holding AG, Munich acquired the firm of BUBENZER BREMSEN – with its headquarters in the town of Kirchen-Wehbach in the Siegerland area of Germany – together with its subsidiaries in the U.S.A. and Malaysia.
PINTSCH BAMAG and BUBENZER BREMSEN define themselves as innovators as well as manufacturers with the highest quality standards. This self-assurance is based on a long and successful tradition which started with BUBENZER BREMSEN in 1958 and which with PINTSCH BAMAG can be traced back to 1843 or, respectively, 1870.
The merger of successful brake manufacturers PINTSCH BAMAG and BUBENZER BREMSEN into PINTSCH BUBENZER GmbH has resulted in a full-line, high quality braking systems supplier which is well-positioned to service the container handling, shipbuilding, offshore, mining, steel and wind industries world-wide. The production facilities complement each other, and are supported by synergies in research and development capabilities. Additional synergies in the areas of installation, sales and service will help to strengthen PINTSCH BUBENZER’s competitive position.
Pintsch Bubenzer is focused on the design, production and service of high quality braking systems for both static and dynamic applications which involve the precise control of small to very large amounts of kinetic energy. The challenge is to control that energy in the most efficient, cost-effective way. In the sectors of port, shipbuilding and offshore engineering, mining, the steel industry, utilization of wind, mechanical engineering and construction of special vehicles, Pintsch Bubenzer is a world leader in braking system design and manufacturing.
The company has two development and production plants in Germany, its own branches in the USA, Malaysia and China, and sales and service partners established around the world. A strong focus on R&D has resulted in the development of many patented products. Pintsch Bubenzer is also committed to ongoing employee training and expansion of its worldwide sales and service network.
