Sixty Years In Business For Brückner

Germany-based Brückner Trockentechnik GmbH & Co. KG, a manufacturer of textile finishing and
dyeing machinery, is celebrating its 60th year in business. The company was founded in 1949 by Kurt
Brückner as an air conditioning unit manufacturer. Soon after it opened, the company changed
direction and began to focus on drying machines, which still form the company’s core business
today. The company reports it has supplied more than 5,000 lines over the past 60 years.

Currently, the company is run by Regina Brückner, the founder’s daughter, and her husband,
Axel Pieper.
