Our company was founded by Wilhelm Vogelbusch in 1921.
His reputation preceded him when German-born Wilhelm Vogelbusch set himself up in Vienna as a technical consultant. Very soon his customers included the major fermentation industry players in Europe and the United States.
An exceptionally gifted engineer, he rapidly made a name for himself by inventing improved evaporation, distillation, and aeration equipment. He set new standards for yeast and alcohol production technology, and his many inventions won him a place in the history of chemical engineering and the textbooks read by generations of students.
Wilhelm Vogelbusch’s business philosophy centered on finding solutions to the problems of his customers. By remaining true to his legacy of focusing on the customer and making a commitment to innovation, his company went on to become a leading supplier to the global bioprocess sector.
Efficient & effective
Then, as now, attention was focused on efficiency, energy conservation, and product purity. Starting with the development of equipment and technical facilities, attention later concentrated on the optimization of process cycles. Profound knowledge of raw material specifications, process management and fabrication of the end product finally led to the development of our own processes which are now in use around the world.
Integrating well in today’s biobased industry landscape, the business Wilhelm Vogelbusch founded is stronger than ever. It has kept to its innovative traditions, and its ability to translate cutting edge technology into solid commercial gains is undiminished.
