With effect from 1 July 2021, Schwanner GmbH will become a full member of the BUTTING Group.

Founded in 1899, SCHWANNER evolved from a small forge into a globally leading MSE specialising in vacuum technology. The core business is in the field of vacuum-insulated transfer systems and the manufacture of cryogenic valves.

In addition to their specialist interests, BUTTING and SCHWANNER have many other things in common: product quality and customer satisfaction have always been top priorities – both companies can look back on a long history and both take responsibility with regard to their employees, fellow human beings and the environment.

It is a shared vision to combine the strengths in the field of pipe production and plant construction with the special expertise in vacuum insulated piping.
