BHS-Sonthofen Creates Process Technology Division

Jan. 27, 2021
AVA and filtration technology division merge to create BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology GmbH & Co. KG.

BHS-Sonthofen is bringing together its collective process expertise in filtration, mixing, drying, granulation, sterilization and reaction in a newly created process technology division. AVA GmbH & Co. KG and the filtration technology division are now operating jointly under the BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology GmbH & Co. KG name with headquarters in Sonthofen, Germany and a site in Herrsching. Their activities are targeted primarily at the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

With its acquisition of AVA GmbH & Co. KG in 2018, BHS-Sonthofen expanded its range of offerings and consulting services. The newly established BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology GmbH & Co. KG marks the final step in the process of integrating AVA into the group.

BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology provides system offerings as well as individual machines and components. The focus is on process engineering consulting. One of its core businesses involves testing customer materials. BHS recently expanded its testing capacity in target markets like the U.S. in an effort to best serve customers where they are.

Detlef Steidl, former senior sales director at Filtration Technology and Volker Spies, former managing director at AVA, will serve as the managing directors at BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology. The two will reportedly continue efforts to develop innovative processes and expand the global presence of the company in the core regions of Europe, Asia and North America.
