Böhmer is internationally known for its reliability and delivery reliability. The continuously growing success of our valves on the Asian market prompted us to expand our representation on the continent.
As a result, the two production plants in Kazakhstan and China were established. We prudently integrated the new plants into the community. Any fear of contact was systematically countered from the outset. Mutual exchange programs, language and communication workshops quickly achieved the desired results. Today, we benefit greatly from the synergy of a homogeneous corporate culture across international borders.
Main factory Sprockhövel
In 1956, the main factory consisted of an 800 m² production shop. Since then, the facilities have been continually expanded and modernized. Today the factory consists of five production shops and two administrative buildings.
In addition to more than 20 fully-equipped assembly stations, modern CNC machines, welding equipment and test stations, the factory also has a fully electronic-controlled high-rise warehouse, which keeps up to 8,000 different articles permanently available.
Branch fatory Hattingen
The branch factory in Hattingen was built on the former site of the renowned Henrichs-hütte steelworks and has been continually expanded. The seven shops were designed for efficient manufacturing of large, fully-welded ball valves from DN 500 to DN 1400.
Our ball valves are tested for tightness directly on site in specialized test stations. The international sales center has been located in an adjacent office building since the year 2000.
Branch factory Kunshan
Until 2013, Böhmer manufactured split body ball valves in Shanghai for the Asian market. It soon became apparent that the existing production surface area was not large enough, but local conditions did not permit expansion. A new factory with modern equipment was therefore opened in Kunshan. The name Böhmer Valve Shanghai Ltd. was changed to Böhmer Valve Kunshan Ltd. when the new production began.
Like the „sibling factory“ in Kazakhstan, BVKL is located on a plot of land that offers enough space for the future needs of the Asian market.
Branch factory Karaganda
The factory in Kazakhstan is the youngest member of the Böhmer family. It is located near the capital Astana. In the factory, fully-welded ball valves are manufactured for the territory of the CIS-states. The plot of land offers enough reserve space for future expansion.
