Natural resources are finite, and the eco-systems in many parts of the world are under heavy pressure. For this reason, we strive, through our actions, to contribute towards making our environment less polluted and to ensuring sparing use of energy, water and raw materials. We already began in 2010 to digitize our business correspondence. Since 2017, a new, future-pointing waste disposal concept has been in force at our Beckum site. As one of our fundamental rules, all our products are characterized by high quality and a long service life. This is a form of sustainability that is further supported by our after-sales service and the Blumenbecker spare parts service.
About 70 percent of the invoice processing in the Blumenbecker companies has been digital. B+M Blumenbecker GmbH introduced paperless accounting in 2010. Since then, we have digitally captured more than one million records per year. This is good for the environment and good for Blumenbecker. Digital document processes mean less paper, less toner and fewer printers. In addition, work processes have become simpler, more transparent and, above all, faster. Monotonous works such as the search for documents are no longer necessary. more
In Blumenbecker Automatisierungstechnik’s new factory building in Beckum, energy consumption is controlled by the building’s central technical management system. With the aid of sensors located at various points within the building, the room temperature is constantly monitored, evaluated and also correlated with the current weather data. On this basis, the central control unit then individually actuates the heating and ventilation components for the various zones of the building. If, for example, the temperature in one part of the factory exceeds a pre-defined setting, the system responds immediately. This saves energy and ensures a pleasant working climate in all areas of the building. more
The as-needed waste disposal system has to be permanently in communication with the disposal provider. Some pressed waste containers do this automatically by means of a digital level monitor that notifies the disposal provider when the container is three-quarters full; the provider arrives in the next two to three days to remove the container. more
