Brückner Consolidates Production At Two Sites

Brückner Trockentechnik GmbH and Co. KG recently announced it has consolidated production and
company operations at two of its sites in Germany. Production is now concentrated at Brückner
Stahlbau GmbH at the company’s Tittmoning site in Bavaria. As a result, Brückner Stahlbau has
established a new, more efficient production structure.

Administrative operations such as development and design, purchasing, sales and marketing,
and after-sales service remain at company headquarters in Leonberg.
