From a small workshop in Selb to an internationally successful mechanical engineering group: NETZSCH is ringing in its 150th anniversary 12 months – and over 4,a hundred workers worldwide are becoming a member of within the celebration.
The beginning is a replica of the identical start-up pattern we often see today: Two brothers arrange their own business in 1873 and, in a small workshop in Selb, developed a prime quality product that gained over the fire departments of the region. The hearth extinguishers from the “Gebrüder Netzsch Maschinenfabrik” have been a big vendor. From there, Thomas Netzsch, a locksmith, and his younger brother Christian Netzsch, an engineer, went on to develop machines for ceramic production that have been additionally renowned for their high quality. With the growth of the porcelain trade at the moment in the Fichtelgebirge, the corporate lastly concentrated completely on the manufacturing of the ceramics business tools.
Thus, a hundred and fifty years in the past, the success story of a family-owned company started, which at present spans the globe with its three business models “Pumps & Systems”, “Grinding & Dispersing” and “Analyzing & Testing” – with products such because the Mohno pump, moist mill and rheometer, with around 210 production and sales places and more than four,a hundred employees.

“Our history supplies answers”
What began in 1873 in a workshop in Selb has, of course, lengthy outgrown its infancy. But NETZSCH wants to remain true to its family values and roots. In this anniversary year, Moritz Netzsch emphasizes: “It is necessary to me that we have a steady, continued improvement of what we do today. My want is that, with all of the reflection, with all the required rethinking and new considering, we develop organically, and produce the corporate into the following generation stronger than ever.”

Our spirit isn’t only inherited by the proprietor family, but also by our workforce.
