A Saxon company with 150 years of tradition.
Who are we?
We are a traditional company for building protection and road construction products and are present on the entire German market. Originating from the "Zwickauer Dachpappen- und Asphaltfabrik" (founded in 1868 by Alwin Aschenborn), we have developed into a modern, medium-sized industrial company over several generations of the family. After being taken over by the state in 1972 and renaming to "VEB Bitumen-Chemie Zwickau", we were one of the first companies to be re-privatised in 1990. Through reorganization, reorientation and investments in the millions, we have become a state-of-the-art manufacturer of construction chemicals.
What do we want?
One of our most important goals is to be a reliable partner for our national and international customers in terms of quality and delivery reliability. Our favourable geographical location, right in the middle of Europe, ensures customer proximity and thus short delivery times as well as competent advice on site. A nationwide presence on the market, a good working atmosphere, secure jobs and the preservation of the environment are very important to us. The profitability of the company (maximising earnings while minimising costs) is to be secured through high productivity.
How do we - want to provide our service?
A distribution network specially tailored to the needs of building materials and roofing wholesalers forms the basis for competent application advice. Therefore, only building materials and roofing wholesalers and their affiliated specialist markets are served. The BORNIT® professional program includes system solutions for the protection and repair of foundations, façades and roofs as well as for new construction and the maintenance of traffic areas. Therefore, our company mission statement is:
"We sell our products in consistently high quality with service and advice from competent staff on site combined with a high degree of flexibility with regard to delivery and implementation of customer requirements".
Our mission statements make us more attractive to our customers and set us apart from our competitors!
With what do we want to - perform our service?
We have a wide range of construction chemicals for the protection and repair of foundations, façades and roofs as well as road construction. The extensive quality programme is mainly the result of our own research and development. Through investments in new production facilities and internal logistics, BORNIT® has become a manufacturer of state-of-the-art construction chemicals products.
