What began in 1873 in a workshop in Selb has, of course, long outgrown its infancy. But NETZSCH wants to remain true to its family values and roots. In this anniversary year, Moritz Netzsch emphasizes: “It is important to me that we have a stable, continued development of what we do today. My wish is that, with all the reflection, with all the necessary rethinking and new thinking, we grow organically, and bring the company into the next generation stronger than ever.”
This is one of the reasons why NETZSCH had its corporate history researched from a variety of perspectives for its 150th anniversary. Looking into the past not only substantiates values and successes, it also reveals the fit of a value proposition. “Our history provides answers as to why we have existed for so long. Our slogan ‘Proven Excellence’ is no empty phrase. We can prove our excellence from our history. One can observe how we actively shaped entire industries over many years. Along with this, NETZSCH has always been able to adapt to radical changes in the corporate world or in the marketplace. Sometimes this also meant that we had to drastically reposition ourselves,” says Paul Netzsch. After the Second World War, for example, potato washing machines were designed, and during the heyday of the porcelain industry, NETZSCH built complete factories for the ceramic industry. All of these developments ultimately led to NETZSCH positioning itself very successfully in the market with its “Analyzing & Testing”, “Grinding & Dispersing” and “Pumps & Systems” business units. “We want to transfer this historically grown adaptability into the future as well,” explains Moritz Netzsch.
