The Milestones of Our Company History
We are very proud of our roots, which reach back more than 150 years. They include some extremely traditional and well-known German companies that shaped environmental and power plant technology from a very early stage: L. & C. Steinmüller GmbH, Deutsche Babcock Anlagen GmbH and Noell KRC Energie- und Umwelttechnik GmbH. And have led us now to a merger with Swiss-Japanese Hitachi Zosen Inova AG, one of the world’s leading providers for Energy from Waste and Renewable Gas systems.
For us, these roots and mergers represent origin, character and obligation: We will never stop advancing the development of our technologies, and we will always remain a trustful partner to our customers.
