Concrete and precast producer BFL Lauchhammer invests in the future

The new, ultra-modern concrete mixing plant of Beton- und Fertigteilgesellschaft mbH Lauchhammer (BFL) was officially commissioned on 20 March, 2023. The commissioning ceremony at the BFL premises was attended by numerous guests from the realms of politics and business who were interested in gaining a personal impression of the new plant, including the Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Energy of the German state of Brandenburg, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Steinbach (SPD). The new concrete mixing plant is an important investment in the company’s future and will strengthen the Lauchhammer location.


Investment in the future of the company

After the previous mixing plant had done its job without fail for 32 years, the construction of a new plant had become necessary, since the already complex production of concrete will become even more challenging in the future in view of increasing requirements.

The background to this was not only the ongoing development of construction materials, which can only be met with state-of-the-art technology; during construction of the new plant, top priority was also assigned to the requirements of occupational health and safety. After a one-year construction period, the first trial operation of the new plant took place on 24 October, 2022.

With the investment in a new, ultra-modern concrete mixing plant with fully automated control of the color and fiber dosing systems, B+F Beton- und Fertigteilgesellschaft Lauchhammer mbH has taken an important step towards the future and future sustainability. The plant is one of the largest single investments in the corporate history of BFL and was one of the most important projects of the General Atomics Europe group of companies realized in 2022.


Contribution to sustainability and resource efficiency

Climate change and its consequences also pose major challenges for the cement industry because, as in many other industries, greenhouse gas emissions need to be significantly reduced. B+F Beton- und Fertigteilgesellschaft mbH is meeting this challenge by investing in a new mixing plant at the Lauchhammer location, thus making an important contribution to future climate neutrality.

The company will in the future be taking the step away from the use of cements with high clinker contents towards a new generation of cements and an extensive range of fillers in order to permanently reduce carbon emissions and to render concrete, as an important construction material, fit for the future. Thanks to the new concrete mixing plant, some precast elements will also have a lower weight, which will facilitate transport and make it more environmentally sustainable.

With the new concrete mixing plant, the company – a member of the General Atomics Europe corporate group – is also investing in environmental protection. “We are pleased that with our new mixing plant we will be contributing to a responsible management of our environment and available resources,” says Hermann Stenzhorn, managing director of B+F Beton- und Fertigteilgesellschaft mbH Lauchhammer.


State-of-the-art mixing technology from Eirich

In the design stage of the new plant, the choice fell on long-established Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich GmbH & Co KG based in Baden-Wurttemberg. “We chose plant supplier Eirich. The best and most modern mixing technology available on the market will permit the state-of-the-art, fast and, above all, high-quality production of many different types of concrete,” explains Hermann Stenzhorn.

The new concrete mixing plant will open up new possibilities of production for BFL and increase production capacities. B+F Beton- und Fertigteilgesellschaft mbH Lauchhammeroffers a wide range of precast products for supply and disposal, traffic, environmental protection, communication and engineering construction.
