Bürkert is one of the world`s leading manufacturers of measurement and control systems for liquids and gases. Our efforts have created a flexible organization that is evolving every day thanks to its closeness to our customers. It is a closeness that is second nature to us as a medium-sized company. Bürkert’s expanding global network, combined with the constant optimization of our processes across all segments, allows us to exchange experience directly and develop joint solutions more quickly and effectively.
This fascination for our business also motivates us to continue venturing beyond the confines of specific market sectors and to seek exceptional solutions to unconventional problems. The segmentation of markets is one example of the specific courage at Bürkert to diverge from standards. This allows us to deliver maximum customer benefit, especially when it comes to application-oriented system solutions, without losing sight of our product-based solutions. Is there anything more fascinating than that? Let us fuel your fascination, too. Welcome to Bürkert!
We globally implemented the Bürkert Process Organization, to create a culture which allows us to innovate, communicate and provide the basis for flexible and open-minded Bürkert employees.
The Bürkert process organization is a cross-functional form of organization with few interfaces and an immense drive for results. We do not define hierarchy through status but in terms of the willingness to proactively assume responsibility. We attach great importance to team spirit and self-dependent action of our employees at all levels and functions.
Transparent decisions and passing on responsibility to the corresponding teams are just as important to us as an active role model function of our executives. This applies on a worldwide basis and
distinguishes our company.
To allow for a holistic execution of tasks and projects, we count on combining our employees’ competence within all processes and beyond process boundaries. This is done with the highest possible flexibility, in compliance with necessary rules of the game as well as through direct communication with each other and efficient teamwork in project teams.
The goal is to achieve together what would not be possible alone.
As an international family-owned company based in Germany, the Bürkert Group is active in the development, production and sales of ’Fluid Control Systems’. Our entrepreneurial success, which stands for the effective employment of our highly qualified and responsible staff, is mainly based on customer orientation, technical know-how, efficient production and consistent delegation of responsibilities within a process-oriented, flat hierarchy structure. In order to implement the aforesaid an ongoing organizational and personnel development is necessary, both on a national and on an international level. To safeguard the success of our company, we have some basic values that guide the cooperation both inside and outside our company.

All in all, they embody our conduct with the aim to solve technical, organizational and interpersonal problems.
From a Pioneer to a Market Leader
A story of success
Bürkert was founded in Germany in 1946 by Christian Bürkert, who began by developing and manufacturing innovative products such as foot warmers, oven controls and thermal control systems for incubators. While these products met the needs of the time, over the years the company increasingly focused on valve technology and soon became an international benchmark for industrial solenoid valves.
With his combination of vision, innovation and enormous energy, Christian Bürkert succeeded in building an enterprise that is today a global leader in fluid control systems, offering everything from simple valves to high-tech sensors, all manufactured to the highest quality and applying state-of-the-art technology.
Unfortunately, Christian Bürkert lost his life in a plane crash in 1971 and didn’t live to see the realisation of his vision. However, his pioneering spirit lives on in the family-owned company, and it is evident in the highly motivated employees who contribute their skills, knowledge and ideas to maintain Bürkert’s position as the market leader, day after day.
