25 years of CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH: Wurzener company is well-prepared for the future

A quarter of a century: CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH was able to look back on this anniversary this year. Unfortunately, the very big celebration had to be postponed for the time being due to the regulations to contain the Corona pandemic.

Nevertheless, an opportunity was found to raise a toast to the company at the opening of the Industrial Magistrale in Wurzen in compliance with the regulations in force. The president of the Leipzig Chamber of Commerce and Industry Kristian Kirpal also took the opportunity to personally deliver the certificate for the 25th company anniversary to Corinne Ziege, managing director of CRYOTEC Anlagenbau.

In its present form, the company was founded by Peter Bienert on August 17, 1995. The history of the company goes back much further, namely to the year 1879 to the machine factory (MAFA) Schütz & Hertel. The then MAFA Wurzen first produced steam engines, pumps and compressors. Later (and after some changes of name) the company planned and assembled air separation and carbon dioxide plants as well as compressors for various gases.

Peter Bienert, a member of the refrigeration plant department of the former Maschinenbaukombinat MAFA, finally founded today’s CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH in 1995, focusing on air separation plants, CO2 technologies, liquefaction plants and special applications for technical gases as well as modular plant construction. Since 2009 the company is part of the EPC Group.

CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH uses the know-how shaped by its historical roots to develop the technology of tomorrow. Under the direction of Managing Director Corinne Ziege, plants for the handling of special gases such as helium or plants for the production of hydrogen have been included in the service portfolio. True to the motto “IDEAS INSIDE”, further novel plants and planning concepts are also being planned for technical gases.
