Development owing to inventiveness

1889

Wilhelm Höcker founded the today's company as a cabinetmaker's workshop, which was continued by his son-in-law, WILHELM NIEMANN.

1952

Restructuring of the company: Gerhard Niemann started the development and manufacturing of large-scale incubators for poultry-breeding and the production was changed from timber production to metalworking.

1963

The fire in the lacquer factory of his friend caused Gerhard Niemann to manufacture a small "paint mixer" (dissolver) as a favour. This aroused the interest of local lacquer factories and they wanted to use the newly-developed speed adjustment technology by friction-vario gear, too, instead of the manual speed adjustment by handwheel wich was usual until then.

1968

Gerhard Niemann invented the speed control depending on viscosity for reproducible dispersion qualities, patent no. 1.588.600, which paved the way for the world-wide success of his company.

1975

NIEMANN granted the licence for production of dissolvers to Netzsch in Selb/Bavaria until 1985.

1981

Delivery of the 1000th machine.

1983

In addition to the above-mentioned patent Gerhard Niemann invented the current-dependent electronic speed control with the possibility of presetting the speed limit, patent no. DE 3221080 C1.

1983

Building of a new factory with a production area of approx. 3000 m² in order to meet the increasing demand both at home and abroad.

1991

Frank Niemann entered the company.
1998 Frank Niemann became the managing shareholder of the company.

1992

The successful introduction of NIEMANN equipment in further export markets led to a continuous increase of the turnover.

1999

NIEMANN was granted the patent for the new development "Double Suction Disc ". This innovation guarantees reduced wetting times and improved dispersion results - another milestone in the history of the constant and successful development of the KREIS-DISSOLVER®!EURO-Patent-Nr. 0896834.

2000

Development of the latest construction series called "Large-scale dissolver" KDV 2000 - Production and dispatch of the largest KREIS-DISSOLVER® ever manufactured.

2003

Dispatch of the 3000th KREIS-DISSOLVER® after 40 years.

2003

Building of a further production hall with 3000 m² hall area in order to be able to adapt the production capacity to the increased demand again.

2005

Presentation of the new, second construction series KREIS-BASKET-MILL® on the occasion of the Middle East Coatings Show 2005. High performance mill for fine grinding in batch production! Series production has been started because of a very good request. Batch sizes of 2 - 2000 litres useful volume.

2006

Enlargement of the office and administration office.

2006

Certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001 by the TÜV NORD CERT.

2008

Development of the construction series KDV / ADV 3000 / settlement of the project "dissolvers for the world's largest paint factory" (ASIAN PAINTS India).

2010

Issuance of 2 further patents:
New development of an improved grinding media separation (series KBM)
New development of a procedure for the special use of the KREIS-DISSOLVER®.

2011

Delivery of the 4000th machine after almost 50 years.

2012

Expansion of production capacity by 1600 square meters of hall space. Purchase of a 2 ½ D laser cutting system including automatic sheet storage. Partial automation of sheet metal processing.

2013

The KREIS-DISSOLVER® celebrates its 50th birthday.

2016

Expansion of the production capacity of a further area of 1600 m2.

2017
