JWE and BANSS are two renowned brands known around the world in the field of slaughtering and meat processing systems. We have been operating side by side since 2019. At the beginning of 2022, we merged the two companies, creating the joint entity JWE-BANSS GmbH.
While the predecessor companies have different roots – BANSS originated in 1848 as a craft enterprise in Biedenkopf/Hesse, JWE in 1996 as a commercial enterprise in Aalen/Baden-Württemberg – we share the same genes: Innovativeness, customer orientation, commitment to quality and, above all, highly motivated employees with outstanding technical expertise. Thanks to these strengths and the synergy effects of the merger, JWE-BANSS is positioned to offer an individually customised system solution to any customer around the world today – from large industrial enterprises to craft producers.
What can we do for you? We look forward to hearing from you.
Customers around the world trust JWE-Baumann quality.
