  • History

    • Founded in 1844 as pump manufacturer Johann Schumacher, BUCHEN has been a service partner for industry and commerce for more than 55 years in the business areas of industrial services, disposal and decontamination.

    About us

    • With around 3,800 employees in more than 70 locations, BUCHEN is one of the leading service providers in Europe in the areas of industrial services, power plant services, tank services, catalyst handling and sludge dewatering. In addition to refineries and chemical corporations, many customers involved in the heavy industry also benefit from the expertise gained by the company, which has been operating since 1844.

    Corporate compliance

    • Responsibility and honesty are the cornerstones of our company culture. No matter what country or field of business we are active in, our actions are always oriented towards legal regulations and ethical and moral principles. Our business activities are based on our Corporate Compliance.

    Industrial Safety and Health Protection

    • Industrial safety and health protection are more than just a duty at BUCHEN. Therefore, the company decided early on in favour of implementing the internationally recognised occupational safety and health management system SCC – Safety Checked Contractors certificate.

    Integrated management system

    • Improvement is a continuous process. The basis for this continuous improvement process is our integrated process-oriented management system, in which we combined the different management systems (quality, safety and environment) in 1988.

    Business principles

    • Quality, security, health and environmental protection are important basic conditions for us and our customers. In 1986 BUCHEN established “Principles of Occupational Safety” for the first time, which was further developed over the following years.
