The establishment of a company for the manufacture of architectural hardware is planned in order to secure jobs in the region.
The GDR's ministry for building grants demolition approval for the vacant brick plant on this site.
Construction of the plant begins in August 1983, with a planned investment of DM 5 million.
To avoid bottlenecks in the construction industry, the boiler house, coal storage, paint storage and entire heating system are built in-house
A company shining with new splendour, the outer shell of the BB architectural hardware is whipped into shape. Under our own direction, the drab exterior is given a beautiful splash of colour in the landscape. The company colours of blue and grey are also formalised.
Increased demand for our products makes it necessary to increase the storage capacity, which has now become too small. The most economical solution is to cover the open space between the production hall and the existing warehouse.
Start of construction of the new office building and production hall for plastic injection moulding.
Completion and occupancy of the new production and storage halls along with the new office building.
BB achieves a milestone with the development of the W-KLT. The container meets the requirements of a commercial small load carrier for Kanban supply, but at the same time offers enormous space savings.
A European patent is granted for the product.
Due to the high demand in plastics, purchasing another silo was unavoidable. More than 1000 tonnes of PP are processed each year.
We increased our impact enormously by investing in an Andritz Kaiser press with 400 tonnes of pressing force.
In July, the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new metal production building took place.
It was built in two phases, with logistics at a size of 1600 square metres built initially, in order to construct metal production with a further 4000 square metres the following year.
After several months of construction, the new metal production and the new high-bay warehouse were finally occupied in 2013.
With the introduction of ISO 50001:2011, BB Stanz- und Umformtechnik takes a big step forwards in terms of sustainability.
Plastic production with adjacent storage is expanded again to provide space for further injection moulding machines.
In order to meet the demand for large-volume plastic products, we invested in a 1300 t injection moulding machine.
An additional silo was invested in to meet the ever-increasing demand in plastics. In the meantime, over 1800 tonnes of PP are processed per year.
A further milestone in the expansion of our plastic production - our first fully electric 1000 t injection moulding machine goes into operation. This allows us to further increase the output quantity of the large-volume plastic parts.
