Biffar awarded SUCCESS technology prize
Biffar GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1958. Ever since then the company has put its heart and soul and all its experience into its work. Biffar provides its customers with top quality safety products. Its customised door and portal solutions are now distributed across the world
Biffar only ever uses sustainable materials of the highest quality for manufacturing its front doors, apartment doors, copper doors, aluminium windows, patio doors and canopies. The company specialises in burglar-resistant and energy-efficient construction for doors in timeless individual style.
On 29 September 2015, the company was awarded the SUCCESS technology prize for these innovative products. Developments at the company include thermal break aluminium profiles in a “Klipssystem”, a system which guarantees all-over insulation and does not cause warping. Ultra-strong burglar protection is provided by using specially welded aluminium profiles, particularly in the doorframe.
This new door concept allows virtually all customer requirements with regard to size and design to be met – all without compromising customer expectations in respect of insulation and security.
In the course of its development work, Biffar has collaborated with Dr. Heiko Andrä and Mr. Wolfgang Oberlinger in the Flow & Material Simulation Department at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) in Kaiserslautern. Now the company’s entire production has been converted for manufacturing the new door design. The company’s continuous ongoing development and innovative thinking are reflected in numbers as well: at the end of 2014, Biffar posted an increase in sales of some 14.5% and recruited four more employees.
The SUCCESS technology prize was presented by Business Secretary Eveline Lemke accompanied by a board member of regional investment bank, Investitions- und Strukturbank Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB). It was followed on 10 October by a visit by the Business Secretary to the company’s headquarters in Edenkoben in southwest Germany. There she gained an insight into the company’s production technology and met with the people who work behind the scenes.
