Our company was founded in 1976 under the name BIRKELBACH GmbH & CO. KG with the goal to metallize technical films for capacitor dielectrics in high-vacuum, to manufacture them according to customers' requirements and offer them all over the world.
Since 1992 our company trades under the name of BIRKELBACH KONDENSATORTECHNIK GmbH. Using the metallization and cutting technology developed and manufactured in our company, we produce an extensive program on the basis of polypropylene, polyester, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polyethylene naphtalate (PEN), polycarbonate and paper. This program comprises all thicknesses available. We do not furnish only standard metallization with pure aluminum, zinc and alloy, but also other metals and alloys, if requested.
Apart from that we have specialized in customer-specific designs such as reinforced edge, internal series, double side metallization, segment and tapered metallization and combinations thereof. It is our corporate aim to be convincing by maintaining highest quality standards, dependable delivery terms and consistent product reliability and with that, to gain our customers' trust.
Our company is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015
