Our roots are truly historic

We are very proud of our roots, which reach back more than 150 years. They include three extremely traditional and well-known German companies that shaped environmental and power plant technology from a very early stage: L. & C. Steinmüller GmbH, Deutsche Babcock Anlagen GmbH and Noell KRC Energie- und Umwelttechnik GmbH. For us, these roots and the merger of these companies together represent origin, character and obligation: We will never stop advancing the development of our technologies, and we will always remain an absolutely reliable partner to our customers.
