Our client offers machinery, individual process steps and entire factories – the perfect contact, whenever it comes to the industrial-scale production and refining of sugar. These are engineering services “Made in Germany” across the globe.


With its batch and continuous centrifugals, the customer has been successful across the globe and across sectors. So the demands are high.
