On course for growth: JWE-Baumann and Banss with a joint appearance at the IFFA

The signs point to growth: At around 300 square metres, about twice as large as at the last IFFA, the stand of JWE-Baumann GmbH in Hall 9.0 C40 will be expanding this year. Finally, there are not only improved and revised scalding and dehairing machines of the Baden-Württemberg manufacturer to see, but also systems of the new partner company Banss GmbH.

The Iffa shows unmistakably: Banss is back. Just over a year ago, the traditional company from Hessian Biedenkopf had to file for bankruptcy in self-administration. At the beginning of 2019 Jürgen Weiss, the owner of JWE-Baumann, took over Banss as managing partner. “What we have achieved in the few months since, exceeds all expectations,” says Jürgen Weiß. The entrepreneur cites the extremely positive development for three main reasons: “Outstanding employees, who are highly motivated, high-quality products and the company’s reputation, which is still good around the world.” After securing the future of operations through the acquisition, customers did not have to wait long. “Banss has already acquired the first new orders for system projects,” says Jürgen Weiß.

JWE-Baumann in Aalen and Banss in Biedenkopf are managed as separate companies, but in the future will cooperate more intensively. While JWE-Baumann, one of the world’s leading suppliers of scalding and dehairing machines, primarily appeals to medium-sized customers, Banss also offers system installations for industrial-scale quantities. “With that, we can now cover the entire spectrum from the craftsman’s business to the group,” says Jürgen Weiß, “and deploy technology from the sister company wherever it makes sense.”  The first results of the collaboration between JWE-Baumann and Banss will be presented at the IFFA. “We are still working on a surprise,” reveals Jürgen Weiß, “but it is no secret that there will be, for example, JWE systems with conveyor technology from Banss in the future.”
