Own production – Made in Germany

In our own production site we currently train 5 apprentices as system mechanics and teach them our quality standards as well as company values right from the start.

The most important requirement for long-term quality assurance are our trainees. As a certified instructor by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce with a global focus, BrauKon offers numerous opportunities for free development and the prospect of subsequent employment and long-term careers. Through interdisciplinary contact points of the various training courses, BrauKon trainees get a comprehensive insight into all company areas.

Cooperation is indispensable to quality. To ensure the highest quality of our systems, we rely on long-term, trusting supplier-relationships. Our suppliers are exclusively from Germany and its neighboring countries. Regular quality controls guarantee a constant performance which meets our demanding quality standards. BrauKon stands for quality and sustainability and does not import any goods from low-wage countries.
