BÖWE Textile Cleaning – A company with tradition

Innovative ideas and continuous further development characterize BÖWE and have made the machine manufacturer known throughout the world. Until today the company supplies customers worldwide with high quality PERC and MultiSolvent dry cleaning machines.

The history of BÖWE started in 1945 with the foundation of the company by Max Böhler and Ferdinand Weber after the end of the Second World War. As suppliers for several cleaning companies they had the idea of developing and building their own dry cleaning machines. Five years later Böhler and Weber presented the first dry cleaning machine for garments. From that point on, a success story started and until today BÖWE delivers innovative and high quality machines to the market.

BÖWE is the only manufacturer in the field of dry cleaning machinery offering its customers the possibility of testing eight types of BÖWE dry cleaning machines with six different solvents in the in-house showroom. After choosing the desired combinations, the customers can read on digital meters the environmentally friendly consumption values in realtime.

Premium machinery

Top of BÖWE’s portfolio is its PremiumLine which comes in 12-30kg sizes and has many possibilities including a perc to multisolvent conversion option. The option is also available in the popular new iLine series which combines and shares the same technology used in the PremiumLine but takes into account cost levels without making compromises. Böwe’s range also includes the M70-multisolvent industrial machine. Their biggest machine in the portfolio is the 200kg option used, for example, by Lufthansa to clean  airline seats.

The company is run by Mr. Frank Ziermann, an experienced PTC manager with a engineering and sales background who became officially the owner an MD of Böwe in 2010. The company’s headquarters are located in Sasbach, Germany, but BÖWE’s operation in Shanghai (China) is also big, with 31 staff and is targeted to the Asian and US market. In Sasbach, it is located a the newly built laundry and finishing showroom that has been added to the existing Böwe showroom academy, that host 8 drycleaning machines of the Germany-based supplier.
