ERBATECH company building

At its facilities in Germany, the company produces machinery for wet finishing processes of textiles and carpets.

The Beginning
Kurt Brückner founded the company in 1963 to act as design and development centre for the Brückner-Group of companies and to be a technology partner for the textile industry.

The 70s - Early Growth
In the late 1970s HASPELFLOW®, a piece-dyeing machine for tubular knits and wovens was developed to replace the prevalent dye beck technology. The machine provided an economic and innovative alternative that was sold in large numbers worldwide and strengthened BRÜCKNER’s name in the industry.

The 90s - Establishment in the Markets
In order to satisfy the increasing demand for open-width processing ranges the SCOUT® product line was developed. The first machines went into operation in 1995. Since then this modular and economic machine concept has developed into the most important product of ERBATECH, with total sales of more than 120 machines up to date.

After 2002 – Independence and Focus
In 2002 the company was split off the Brückner-Group and renamed ERBATECH GmbH. Mr. Ulrich von Christen took over the MD position and is leading the operations. Under new ownership the company was restructured and focused only on wet finishing machines. All product lines were refurbished and further upgraded.

New Products
In 2004 the new dye padder SCOUT-COLOR® was developed together with partners from the textile industry. This dye padder is applicable for woven as well as for knitted fabrics and completes our product portfolio in order to provide the full package of machines for integrated finishing plants.

Latest Developments
In 2006 OBERMAIER® the well-known producer of yarn dyeing machines was acquired and integrated into ERBATECH. Our company now offers the full portfolio of machines and services for yarn and fibre dyeing.
