The Bruch Group, a family-run company in the fourth generation with three production plants in Germany, is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of aluminium casting alloys.
In 2005, some 100,000 tonnes of alloys were produced at the plants in Dortmund, Asperg and Bad Säckingen. Bruch’s largest customer is DaimlerChrysler followed by Ford, Mahle, PSA, Kolbenschmidt Pierburg, General Motors and others. More than 85% of the aluminium casting alloys produced using secondary and primary raw materials are delivered to the European customers in liquid form.
Major investments were made in 2005, EUR 1 million at the Bad Säckingen plant and EUR 3 million at the Asperg site, thus establishing the preconditions for further growth and modernisation. At the Dortmund site, too, the future of the company and hence also in particular of the jobs is being safeguarded through appropriate investments and the active support of all the employees with an increase in the weekly working time from 35 to 40 hours.
Following a significant capital increase from within, a financial investor has now also decided – after a detailed review of the perspectives for the future – to support the growth of the Bruch Group.
Customers and suppliers alike have observed the positive further development of the Bruch Group with the greatest interest and satisfaction.
