71 years of Sennebogen celebrated at inhouse exhibitionPublished 14/11 at 14:49
Established in 1952, Sennebogen is very well positioned after 71 years. Since the last big inhouse exhibition in 2017, not only have the number of employees and locations worldwide grown, but also the company’s broad equipment portfolio. At the company’s September inhouse exhibition it showed the latest technological developments and highlighted various investments in new and existing locations.
Sennebogen currently has 2,200 employees located at five locations in Bavaria (Germany), two steel plants in Hungary and branches in the USA and Singapore. Sales and support are undertaken by a comprehensive network of dealers with over 180 sales and service partners and over 300 service centres worldwide. This has all resulted in during the past few years not only recording increased average sales growth, but the company has also seen continuous investments in existing and new locations. At the same time, the workforce has grown dynamically to its current size. However, despite this growth, one thing always remains the same: Sennebogen is and remains a family company.
The company is now managed by the second generation, Erich and Walter Sennebogen, and by the third generation, Anton and Sebastian Sennebogen. The two other grandchildren of the company founder are already in the starting blocks and are involved in all important appointments and events. Erich Sennebogen is optimistic about the future: “Our customers are amazed by the dynamic approach and agility of the company, and we are sure that the investments will have a very positive impact on further development. The business areas have become more diverse and customer demand for quality products and services is growing constantly. To stay ahead of the competition, we invest in our product portfolio and locations every year."
Facilities in many countries
Sennebogen has built new facilities in recent years including a customer service centre in Steinach, which opened in September 2021, catering for spare parts, customer service, as well as the rental and used machine fleet. There were also expansions at the Wackersdorf site, a second steel plant in Litér (Hungary), and a brand new product development campus at the Straubing/Port site which was officially inaugurated at the inhouse exhibition. Here, new machine development, testing and prototype construction are brought together in a central place to enable a more intensive focus on the development of new technologies.
Sennebogen thinks long term, and that includes responsible use of resources. The company is committed to its goal of becoming climate neutral by 2030. All new buildings are built in accordance with the KfW 55 standard (reduces energy consumption by 45%) and are therefore particularly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Energy saving lighting, heating buildings with low temperature heating and environmentally friendly cooling using groundwater are also used.
