Apparatebau Nordhausen GmbHOver 175 years of brewery plant tradition

There are only a few medium-sized companies in Nordhausen, which can refer to a 175-year operating tradition.

One of the small circle of these companies is also the Apparatebau Nordhausen GmbH. The customer orientation, the entrepreneurial vision, the reliability and the high professional competence is due to the fact that the company has developed into the fourth largest brewery plant in Germany in recent years.
The roots of the company lie in the small Upper Silesian town of Grottkau and date back to 1830.
