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.
Today Bürkert is a global leader in fluid control systems, industrial measurement and control technology. Burkert manufactures systems for measuring and controlling gases and fluids from individual valves, sensors or controls up to complete automation solutions and fluid systems. All components of the control loop are based on finely-tuned interfaces whose products and systems cover the complete control loop and have a wide variety of applications, from breweries and laboratories to medical engineering and space technology.
