Performance and competence based on tradition
Following the founding of the company in 1972 by Werner Burbach and Günter Bender, the fields of engineering and equipment engineering, along with the steelworks and metallurgical industry were the primary fields of activity. Three years later – in 1975 – the first contacts in the refractory industry laid the foundations for what today is one of the key pillars of the company.
We were soon in a position to be the first company in the world to tailor gas purging cones. A thirst for innovation and the courage to do something new guaranteed an increasing influence by the refractory industry on the company’s activities. The increasing specialisation made it possible to make sustainable developments in this industry. A large number of patents are a reflection of our performance and the willingness to overcome challenges using the “best-in-class” principle.
A strong focus on solutions in particular is representative of this. esb Burbach & Bender GmbH & Co. KG is still a family-run company today. The Managing Director, Andreas Bender, is a son of the founder Günter Bender. Increasing employment figures are impressive evidence of solid growth with a sense of proportion. 40 employees currently work for esb Burbach & Bender GmbH & Co. KG.
