Unbelievable, but true: 25 years have already passed since Wilhelm “Willi” Dürbaum and I founded MASCHINENBAU-TECHNIK W. DÜRBAUM, in short: MBTD GbR. At that time still under the name Dürbaum Walzentechnik. Reason enough to take an emotional and grateful look back.
Because: The times were not always easy and yet luck was often on our side, also because we made the right decisions at the right times.
Since 1997 I have had sole responsibility for the company, as my dear colleague and co-founder unfortunately had to leave for health reasons. And yet MBTD continued to grow slowly. So did our customer base. The increased demand as well as an expansion of the product range ensured that MBTD GmbH, which has now grown to eight employees, serves not only the European but also the transatlantic area with its special designs in the field of roller, machine and apparatus construction.
