Expertise and Innovation Through Own Research
Innovation has always been one of the secrets behind the success of the Brandenburger Group. The work of our own research and development department has resulted in the Brandenburger Group’s ownership of numerous national and international patents. Through close collaboration with independent institutions, universities and prominent companies in the plastics industry, as well as through developments resulting from collaboration with customers, Brandenburger has been able to continuously advance its product range.
No-compromise quality, compliant with DIN EN ISO 9001
Brandenburger products safeguard the functionality of machines and systems, reduce energy consumption and protect the environment. Therefore Brandenburger assigns highest priority to maintaining a consistently high product quality. With this no-compromise attitude towards quality, Brandenburger has obtained a leading position in the market. The Brandenburger quality management system (QM system) was specially developed for this purpose. It was certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 as early as 1994.
