Ground-Breaking Ceremony for the New Production Hall

To always be at the forefront with future-oriented ideas, novel technologies and cutting edge equipment – this describes the motivation of the company founder Peter Henze very well. HENZE BNP/DE has been dedicated to the development of tailor-made product solutions from hexagonal boron nitride since 1993. Today, the Allgäu-based company is successfully managed by the sons Christoph and Matthias Henze.

As a leading boron nitride specialist, HENZE BNP enjoys a high level of trust with its customers. Among other things, this is thanks to the consistently high quality level, the high delivery reliability, the many years of experience with the material boron nitride, the comprehensive consulting competence, as well as the ability to react quickly and flexibly to new challenges of the market.

The ceramic precision components made of sintered boron nitride, the various boron nitride powder as well as the high-performance suspensions, sprays and lubricant additives are used, for example, in high-temperature furnace construction, in PVD and plasma systems, in aluminium extrusion or in metal casting applications. The boron nitride products developed jointly with customers are manufactured by trained specialists on a production area of around 2500 m². HENZE BNP has a modern machinery and plant park as well as a well-equipped laboratory for this purpose.

In addition, the up-and-coming company has long been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and is currently also certified according to DIN ISO 14001 Environment. The efficient use of resources, the sustainability of the products as well as the careful handling of raw materials and energy play a crucial role at HENZE BNP. Almost half of the electricity required is supplied by the company’s own photovoltaic system, for example, while the rest is purchased on the market from 100 % renewable sources.

The 40-member team continues to act according to the motto “Always One Step Ahead” and is consistently expanding its market lead – even in new markets. To mark the start of the new production hall’s construction, the ground-breaking ceremony was held in bright sunshine in the middle of September 2021. With the new construction of the approximately 900 m2 production hall, distances between production, quality assurance, laboratory, and administration are short, thereby generating capacities for further growth. The company selected wood as the main building material, which is a renewable raw material with a tradition of high functionality and safety. Completion is planned for summer 2022.
