CRYOTEC Außenansicht

Traditional Wurzener companies are inviting you: The Year of Industrial Culture 2020 in Saxony is again offering exciting events and interesting lectures. The official opening is on 5 th of September. CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH will provide its over 7,000 m² production and storage hall for this purpose – enough space to receive numerous guests and at the same time comply with the corona regulations then in force.

This year, the Year of Industrial Heritage in Wurzen will take place as an industrial main road along the Bundesstraße 6. On several days, the traditional Wurzen companies, which have significantly shaped the townscape of Wurzen, will open their doors and offer those interested a look behind the scenes.

One of these traditional companies is CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH. Although the company has only existed in its present form since 1995, its roots go back to 1879 and the machine factory (MAFA) Schütz & Hertel. The company was and is commonly known as MAFA Wurzen and initially manufactured steam engines, pumps and compressors. Later (and after some changes of name) the company planned and assembled air separation and carbon dioxide plants as well as compressors for various gases.

Peter Bienert, an employee of the refrigeration plant department of the former Maschinenbaukombinat MAFA, finally founded today’s CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH in 1995, focusing on air separation plants, CO2 technologies, liquefaction plants and special applications for technical gases as well as modular plant construction. Since 2009 the company is part of the EPC Group. With the know-how shaped by its historical roots, CRYOTEC Anlagenbau GmbH develops technology of tomorrow. On September 5th, all interested parties can see this for themselves during the Industrial Magistrale.
