Brückner Maschinenbau defies the crisis

Gratifying Incoming Orders – due to good business with China

Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, Siegsdorf - world market leader for film stretching lines - will attain an order increase of over 50 % in the current fiscal year compared to 2008. As project duration is around 12 months, the full extent of certain order figures will, however, be reflected in the turnover for the forthcoming year, therefore already now a turnover increase for 2010 is certain.


The main reason for this most favourable, yet contrary to the overall business trend, development is due to the numerous orders received from China. Chinese film manufacturers benefit from their governmental support and accordingly have placed orders with Brückner. In addition, lines have also been sold to Europe, South America, Indonesia and Taiwan. Brückner is therewith assuring their worldwide leading market position.


Ludwig Eckart, Managing Director Brückner Maschinenbau - Sales and Project Management: „Our sustained success throughout the world markets is mainly due to our technological competitive edge: For instance, we have several production lines for biaxially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) reaching production speeds of over 500 m/min successful on the market. Also, with regard to high-quality polyester film production, we were able to enter new dimensions in terms of stretching technology and film quality. A further strength of Brückner lies in highly sophisticated special lines which - in collaboration with our Technology Center – can offer our customers a high development potential. Last but not least, film manufacturers throughout the world appraise our absolute reliability in terms of project handling and start-up.“


In the extremely volatile market for film stretching lines, predictions are without doubt difficult, nevertheless, Brückner with their wide product programme range is confident to be successful also in the future. Besides efficient lines for the orientation of PP, PET, PA, PS and PE, focus is given to:


Flexible special film lines, e.g. for shrink film for fashion tags and labels, optical films for flat screens and displays, high-temperature films for the textile industry, for membranes in the medical field and for batteries or flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs) and insulations

High-performance extrusion lines for the production of high-quality cast polypropylene (CPP) and thermoform polyester film and sheet

Turn-key package – from the greenfield to the turn-key production plant

Lines for the processing of polylactic acid (PLA) and other biopolymers
