More than 20 years experience

BB Engineering GmbH is an innovative supplier in the field of machinery and plant engineering for the synthetic fiber and film industry. Our product portfolio includes machine components such as extruders and filters as well as complete spinning and recycling plants. In addition, we offer engineering, construction and assembly services. The scope of our services ranges from conception and planning to design and development to the implementation of projects for our mainly international customers around the globe.

Our company was founded in 1997 as a joint venture of the companies Barmag (today Oerlikon Barmag, a brand of the Polymer Processing division of the Oerlikon Group) and Brückner Maschinenbau, two global leaders in their markets. Thus, we bundle a lot of know-how. Our goal is to develop machines that don't just work, but that are better and bring our customers significant added value. This is what we call "valueneering". And it works - we are growing steadily and now employ more than 160 people at our company site in Remscheid-Lennep.
