Busch (UK) Limited is one out of 58 companies within the global Busch group and was the first overseas subsidiary outside of Germany to be established in 1971. The UK operation is comprised of our Telford, Shropshire, headquarters, which also includes our national service centre and specialist systems department and our dedicated medium/high vacuum service centre in East Kilbride, Scotland.
Busch is a family owned company and continues to be managed by members of the Busch Family. We are one of the largest manufacturers of vacuum pump and overpressure blowers in the world with our product range providing solutions for a wide variety of applications and industry sectors.
As part of a global family, we endeavour to adopt a family approach within Busch UK. We place great importance on maintaining a positive spirit within the company from coffee mornings with the managing director for all staff and team building days, through to an active social calendar. We have a strong apprentice and graduate programme and aim to develop our own people to ensure they have the opportunity to flourish and succeed within our organisation. Many of our apprentices have gone on to work in other areas of the business, such as external sales. In addition, providing ongoing quality training for all our employees is at the heart of our continuous improvement philosophy.
In each of our UK facilities we adopt LEAN working practices to ensure we are always seeking ways of eradicating waste in our processes and daily activities, which will lead to us being more efficient and in turn, adding value for our customers.
We pride ourselves in having one of the most established and comprehensive service networks on the UK vacuum market and with 10 service engineers spread across the UK we can offer on-site support to our customers within minutes. Our after sales product portfolio is second to none and we strongly believe in WORLDCLASS customer service at all times – from new vacuum pumps sales, to systems and service business.
Busch (UK) Limited takes the continuance of a healthy environment extremely serious and focus groups have been put together to regularly discuss ways of making us more environmentally friendly. Paper saving exercises, electricity saving ideas and waste reducing opportunities are being taken very seriously.
At Busch (UK) Limited we are also very active in the local community with sponsorships of local sporting events and regular contributions to local charities which underlines the family and social approach of our organisation. We want to grow our business, but we also care about people, the environment and our community at the same time. Please read more about our social commitment - Sponsorship.
The global headquarter for the Busch group is located in Maulburg, Germany, which is also home to the main manufacturing facility. With further production plants in Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Korea and the USA we are extremely proud that the 6th manufacturing site is based in Crewe, Cheshire which produces liquid ring vacuum pumps.
