MBRAUN has over 40 years experience providing inert glove box solutions for clean environments. Our core market segments include university, OLED research and mass production, lithium ion battery research and production, high intensity discharge lamps and ceramic lamp production, inert gas welding, pharmaceutical, nuclear containment and research in chemistry applications.

As an investment company of INDUS Holding AG, a German Financial Holding Company with a turnover beyond 1 Billion Euro, MBRAUN has the financial possibilities to invest in research, product development, and new technologies. These types of investments help insure further improvement of MBRAUN’s inert gas technology and provide better solutions to meeting customer specifications.

In the early 1970's, the first inert atmosphere glovebox reached the market. The need for this type of equipment was rapidly rising, but some facilities were unsatisfied with the available technology.

Two young, skilled and dedicated engineers Mr. Hellmut Fölster and Mr. Gerhard Hinrichs were asked to develop and build a glovebox system that would satisfy their higher demands for technology and quality. After the first system was produced, its success led to the formation of 'M. Braun Labortechnische Geräte GmbH' in 1976.

This company was dedicated to the development, manufacture and advancement of inert gas technology. The reliability of operation and purity of environments quickly earned MBRAUN the reputation of producing the finest gloveboxes available. MBRAUN has continuously grown and expanded its sales area from Europe to the United States and Asia.

In 2002 INDUS Holding AG took over 100% of the shares to enable the further healthy growth of the company. The company was renamed to “M. Braun Inertgas-Systeme GmbH”

MBRAUN has over thirty years experience providing clean environments. Below is a brief timeline which tells you a little more about the history of our company.

MBRAUN has a clear mission to be the first in exploring new applications and trends in clean environment solutions. This idea helps contribute to our customers' success in developing and commercializing new ground-breaking product ideas.

MBRAUN is a reliable partner with a high degree of application know-how. Our mission is based on four core components.

Working as a team. We understand that cooperation is crucial for successful interaction with our customers. Combining MBRAUN engineering experience, motivated project teams and innovative ideas with customer research results, individual needs and timelines allows for meeting even the most demanding goals.

Skill is the essence. MBRAUN dedicates itself to engineering excellence. Advanced education and investments allow us to keep pace with developments in key markets and be prepared for emerging technologies.

Innovation is our success. We develop products, solutions and services through constant advancement and continuous improvement. Being creative enables us to meet customer needs efficiently using both proven and novel approaches.

Bridging the gap through dialogue. We believe in two-sided interactions to gather and exchange information efficiently. Our professional interface management ensures that the right information is transferred on time to the corresponding people within the respective organizations.

The manufacture and assembly of the cleanest environments require the highest standard of quality assurance. In order to align quality control to its production capabilities, MBRAUN matches its internal process to its customers' application specifications. This includes sampling, inspection procedures, measurement and test equipment, functional testing, packaging, and process control procedures.

In addition to incoming material, first article, lot, and in-process component inspections, the quality assurance staff maintains process surveillance on all production operations. The latest in performance and reliability testing equipment is on-line in MBRAUN's main facilities that house the research and development operations. The critical tolerances governing the basic dimensions of the various components are measured and controlled. After final assembly, the various performance functions are tested for compliance. The further classification, listing, compliance, and/or certification (ex. NQA 1 & UL Listing) of additional products are available to meet specific customer requirements.
