HB 6000 – the second generation
The HB 6000 tank system developed in 2008 is replaced by an improved and enhanced version. The HB 6000-series tank systems are fitted with piston pumps and 5, 10, 20 or 35-litre tanks and up to six hose connections, depending on customers’ needs. The HB 6000 series devices boast high performance, simple handling and an easy-to-use temperature control with display.
Introduction of HB 181
The newly developed HB 181 mechanical hand pistol replaces the previous HB 180 model. The three possible mounting operations are successfully registered for a patent. With the HB 181, BÜHNEN offers a powerful, small and easy to manage device that has many more applications than just for florists.
Takeover of the Operations of our Former Subsidiary in Austria
In July, BÜHNEN wholly acquired the sales operations of adhesive systems in Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary from its former subsidiary company in Vienna, Heinz Bühnen GmbH & Co. KG. Austria and Slovenia are supervised by two of our own staff, the Czech Republic and Slovakia by BÜHNEN Polska in Wroclaw, and the Hungarian operations by an exclusive representative.
Start of Construction on New Offices
The building work on the new offices on our Bremen site began in July. The building work will probably be completed in April 2016. The new building is a sustainable investment in improved working spaces and a clear commitment to our “Hinterm Sielhof” site in Bremen.
Termolan in the BÜHNEN Group
Bühnen International GmbH acquired Termolan Sp. z.o.o. in Poland and Termolan CZ s.r.o in the Czech Republic from the Termolan founders in December, and in doing so became the market-leading company for hot melt adhesives in Central and Eastern Europe.
