The story of Bänninger Kunststoff-Produkte GmbH is a story of success which began in 1969 when the original Bänninger Company that was established in 1909 separated the copper and the plastic division. In 1970 a new factory for PVC-U, PE, and PP fittings opened – the existing headquarter of BR at Reiskirchen.
In 1987 the plastic division of Bänninger was overtaken by family Stamm and renamed as Bänninger Kunststoff-Produkte GmbH. New stock facilities had been built to be able to meet the customer’s requirements.
In 1990 after the “Fall of the Wall”, Bänninger founded a new production facility in Staßfurth where PP-R/PP-RCT pipes and fittings are manufactured still today.
In 2002 the Bänninger Group started to cooperate with the Polish company Formtechnik resulting in the company Bänninger Formtechnik, a manufacturer for injection molding forms, blanking tools and press up making. Bänninger Formtechnik makes the Bänninger Group independent from the tooling market leading to reduce waiting time and to meet the market requirements.
In the same year, the first subsidiary for sales of Bänninger products opened in Romania. Since 2002 Marius Miclea leads a sales team consisting of five sales managers bringing Bänninger products to the domestic market. Bänninger Romania keeps all products of the Bänninger range on stock.
To be able to meet the market requirements of the Middle East region Bänninger opened a production facility for PP-R pipes in Dubai in the year 2007. Baenninger Middle East LLC produces SKZ certified pipes from d20mm to d63mm under German standards.
Supporting our Bänninger agents in Middle East countries in the field of marketing and technical questions was the main reason for the foundation of Baenninger Trading LLC Dubai in the year 2011.
The latest subsidiary of Bänninger was founded in 2012. Baenninger Inc. handles the markets of the USA and Canada. The Sales Office is located in New York and is working very closely with company Orion Enterprises Incorporated.
Over the years Bänninger has expanded considerably. New production facilities, stocks as well as increasing numbers of partners made Bänninger to one of the big players in the international markets.
In 2016 Baenninger Middle East LLC was taken over by Baenninger Trading LLC. To increase the storage space in the available facilities, Baenninger decided to dismantle the production facilities in favour of new warehouse racks. As now there is no production in the Middle East anymore Baenninger Trading LLC has an increased reaction time due to increased storage facilities.
