A special year for BUCHEN

A perfect blend of tradition and progress

Market leader in Europe

When BUCHEN UmweltService says that its performance and know-how are growing year on year, then it is certainly not exaggerating. This REMONDIS subsidiary, which specialises in high quality industrial services, is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. Founded at the start of the Industrial Revolution, it is now one of the leading industrial service providers in Europe.

Constantly looking for innovative ideas

BUCHEN’s success is based on a number of factors that have stood it in good stead throughout its history: technological experience, systematic specialisation and a high innovative spirit. The processes it uses are constantly being optimised and its machinery, technology and systems further developed. Focus has also been put on automation – something that has led to both a higher standard of work and higher work safety levels. Just one example here is in the area of high-pressure water jetting, where BUCHEN has developed hands-free solutions for all its applications. By designing and building its own closed-loop automated systems, the company is continuously driving progress – for example with its BTS Jet Washer system for cleaning tanks and its Closed Loop system for cleaning heat exchangers.

BUCHEN has a wide and varied portfolio of services.

BUCHEN has a wide and varied portfolio of services. One of its special strengths is its ability to deliver a range of specialist services for cleaning and maintaining industrial facilities and plant parts – from nuclear services and heat exchanger services, to sludge dewatering and safety services, all the way through to carrying out turnarounds and cleaning large-scale tanks.

Open Day held to celebrate the anniversary

The spotlight was also on this diverse portfolio during a customer open day that had been organised as part of the company’s anniversary celebrations. Held at the firm’s head office in Cologne-Niehl, the visitors were able to take a closer look at its latest developments, technologies and safety equipment. What’s more, they also had the opportunity to learn more about the complementary services provided by some of its sister companies, such as XERVON’s scaffolding solutions and the predictive maintenance solutions offered by XERVON Instandhaltung. The approx. 100 guests, primarily from the chemicals and refinery industries, were obviously impressed by what they saw – by the breadth of the services as well as by the ongoing focus on work safety, in particular by developing automated processes.

The customer open day was also attended by BUCHEN-ICS. This BUCHEN subsidiary, which specialises in reactor services, catalyst handling, chemical cleaning and tank cleaning work, was founded 40 years ago and so is celebrating its own special anniversary this year as well.
