Busch UK in the Community

Being at the heart of the community, supporting local charities and good causes is very important to all of us at Busch (UK) Ltd.

Charity fundraising

Our colleagues throughout the company select a different local or national charity to support each year. Charities we have raised money for over the years include Telford Mind, SAMH (Scottish Association Mental Health), Telford Young Careers Service, Hope House, Cancer Research UK, MacMillan Cancer Support, the Rainbow Trust, the Severn Hospice, and the children's ward at the Princess Royal Hospital. Each year we organise a series of fundraising events and activities for our employees to participate in.

Ironbridge Half Marathon

The Ironbridge Half Marathon, which plays a key role in our local community, takes place every spring and is attended by our team of runners. We support this important annual charity and fundraising event for Telford and Shropshire by sponsoring it for over 25 years. In 2018 the winner's trophy was renamed the Karl Busch Trophy.

STEM Project

The Shropshire Star’s STEM competition is an initiative to boost student engagement in the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics whilst providing an insight into the world of industry. Busch (UK) Ltd has taken part in the STEM project since 2019. Back then, we teamed up with Haberdasher's Abraham Darby and won the Business Champion Award.

F1 in Schools

Busch (UK) Ltd teamed up with Burton Borough in 2019 to participate in the F1 in Schools competition. This is an international STEM competition for school children, in which groups of three to six students have to design and build a miniature car out of the official F1 model block using CAD/CAM design tools.

Vacuum Pumps in the UK

Whether providing a reliable central vacuum supply for a hospital in London or supplying vacuum pumps for packaging to leading food production companies in Birmingham, Busch is the number one supplier for vacuum solutions in England, Wales and Scotland.

The Semiconductor industry is a major employer in Manchester and is supported by leading high vacuum expertise and products from Busch. Shipbuilding continues to thrive in Scotland's most populated city, Glasgow. Vacuum is replacing towing ropes as a quicker and more secure ship mooring system. Newcastle's Centre for Life is a science village established in 2000 to promote the advancement of biotechnology. So-called laboratory vacuum pumps from Busch are used routinely in labs across the UK.

To this day, Sheffield has an international reputation for steelmaking and metallurgy. Vacuum is used in many processes in the metallurgical sector including alloy production, single crystal fabrication, steel degassing and annealing by heat treatment. Leeds is the third largest manufacturing center in the UK with meat production playing a major part. There are numerous applications in UK's food industry that rely on vacuum like the processing of heat- and oxygen-sensitive materials.

Bristol has been playing an important role in the manufacture of aircraft for decades. A new aluminium alloy enables a lot of weight to be saved in the aviation sector. Vacuum is used in a process called creep age forming which puts the construction material into shape.

Nottingham included low-carbon technologies in their economic development strategy. Many of those technologies like the production of solar panels or wind turbines use Busch vacuum in their production processes.

Car manufacturing takes place in the Liverpool area with British luxury cars being assembled in the city of Halewood. Vacuum technology allows the reliable, safe, and efficient handling of parts in the assembling process. Invisible to the eyes of many, thousands of Busch vacuum pumps are in operation in many sectors of the British economy in all corners of the country.
