Bürkert was founded in Germany in 1946 by Christian Bürkert, who began by developing and manufacturing innovative products such as foot warmers, oven controls and thermal control systems for incubators. While these products met the needs of the time, over the years the company increasingly focused on valve technology and soon became an international benchmark for industrial solenoid valves.
The success story takes its course
With his combination of vision, innovation and enormous energy, Christian Bürkert succeeded in building an enterprise that is today a global leader in fluid control systems, offering everything from single valves to high-tech sensors, all manufactured to the highest quality and applying state-of-the-art technology.
The pioneering spirit lives on
Unfortunately, Christian Bürkert lost his life in a plane crash in 1971 and didn’t live to see the full realisation of his vision. However, his pioneering spirit lives on in the family-owned company, and it is evident in the highly motivated employees who contribute their skills, knowledge and ideas to maintain Bürkert’s position as an independent market leader, day after day.
And yet hardly a day goes by without new and exciting challenges which we gladly embrace — challenges that help us grow. Whether measuring or controlling, we’re fascinated by everything that flows. And without doubt, this fascination has enabled us to become a world leader in the area of Fluid Control Systems. It also drives us to constantly reinvent ourselves without losing sight of our strong values.
Our efforts have created a flexible organization that is evolving every day thanks to its closeness to our customers. It is a closeness that is second nature to us as a medium-sized company. Bürkert’s expanding global network, combined with the constant optimization of our processes across all segments, allows us to exchange experience directly and develop joint solutions more quickly and effectively.
This fascination for our business also motivates us to continue venturing beyond the confines of specific market sectors and to seek exceptional solutions to unconventional problems. The segmentation of markets is one example of the specific courage at Bürkert to diverge from standards. This allows us to deliver maximum customer benefit, especially when it comes to application-oriented system solutions, without losing sight of our product-based solutions. Is there anything more fascinating than that? Let us fuel your fascination, too. Welcome to Bürkert!
