Solutions for Special Applications

HawkeyePedershaab has merged with BFS Betonfertigteilesysteme GmbH, based in Blaubeuren, Germany.

BFS develops, designs and produces machines for manufacturing high quality prefabricated concrete products to be used in sewage and waste water systems.

The main activities of BFS GmbH and its Italian branch office, BFS S.r.l., revolve around sophisticated machinery and equipment for production processes with flexible manufacturing capabilities.

The origin of BFS can be traced back to BaumgärtnerMaschinenfabrik GmbH, which was established in 1980 and was purchased by the Casagrande Group (Italy) in 2002. The “Impianti” department at Casagrande was assigned to BFS GmbH and it has since then operated as BFS S.r.l. The custom built equipment and machinery allow the production of a wide variety of concrete products and the company's close cooperation with individual customers creates an efficient, demand-oriented production platform for high-quality products. BFS develops and delivers modular systems from semi-automated single machine units to fully automated turnkey production plants.

State-of-the-art equipment and know-how has allowed BFS to establish itself in the national and international market as the innovation engine and technology leader for concrete pipe and manhole production as well as for other prefabricated concrete products for the professional construction of the civil engineering infrastructure.
