Tailor-made instead of standard.

Mechanical Engineering

Our customers have special wishes – and we like that. The conception of special machines and plants is our strength. Maybe you have a good idea, but you don’t know how to implement it: Then we are your partner.

We support you from the first CAD draft to completion, including the control system. Your already finished concepts can also be realized by us and then assembled at your site. With the help of automation technologies, we can optimize processes and adapt them to technical progress – entirely in the spirit of an industry 4.0.

Air Technology

You will hardly find standard solutions among our ventilation systems. We develop an efficient extraction system for industry and trade that is tailored to your needs, because we know: Clean air is extremely important at the workplace. And: Environmental protection is also health protection.

Our extraction systems filter substances of all aggregate states: liquid, solid and gaseous. They ensure that odours, vapours, aerosols, slag and dust can be safely absorbed and disposed of. By means of separation, residual materials can be reused for the manufacturing process.

Gas Technology

Also in this area special cases are our speciality, for example handling of fluorine gas, mobile steel cylinder filling stations for technical and medical gases, tank connection systems, gas-technical equipment of transport vehicles in particular for hydrogen and many more.

Didactic Systems for Automotive

A further topic of Brüning-Pionier are teaching systems for training in automotive technology. Our customers include universities, vocational schools, chambers of trade and industry.

Through the realistic presentation of components, the topics of automotive training and education can be optimally conveyed.

As a rule, our training systems have a modular structure and can be expanded. Sales are carried out exclusively by our partner Thepra.


Brüning-Pionier was founded over 100 years ago in Essen and is still completely in family hands. Already at the beginning of the 20th century the first patents for oxyfuel technology were registered. We have remained true to our basic idea of always developing new products and solutions for our customers.
