Specialist in temperature control

Temperature control with electricity? That’s an area we really know well. Why? Because we’ve been involved with electric heating plate technology for 30 years now. That’s how long we’ve been developing, producing and marketing electric heating and cooling plates. And press tools made of aluminium, wood or steel. All that experience has turned us into true specialists. We develop solutions for and together with our customers. Individually tailored to their requirements.

We know heating plate technology like the back of our hands.
Busse has that know-how. Busse can do it.

Our national and international customers appreciate our worth: Busse is the flexible, highly capable partner at their side. Almost all the press manufacturers trust in our know-how and rely on our expertise. This has made us the largest manufacturer of standard electric heating plates in Europe. And to be quite honest, we’re pretty proud of that. Of course, we also enjoy the trust and confidence of the many customers in other industries that we work for. In the automotive, food and sports industries, for example, or in the construction of grand pianos. Every year, we send out around 3,000 components throughout the world from our heating plate plant in Espelkamp in the German region of East Westphalia. That speaks for itself, we think.

Concentrated cumulative know-how:
the Busse group of companies

Forming tools and heating plate technology have a lot in common.

So it’s no wonder that we’ve been supplying international manufacturers of moulded wood products for several decades. Our market share of around 90% is impressive. And as a tool manufacturer in the plywood processing industry, we have justifiably occupied a top international position as a technology leader for a number of years now. Something else that we’re proud of.

New things excite us!
The demands of new technologies and production areas are a stimulating challenge for us. This is what we work for and what we’re passionate about. Hand in hand with our customers, we find the optimum individually tailored solution for every project. An electric heating plate for 3D printing, for example.

Concentrated cumulative know-how:
the Busse group of companies

Heating, cooling, forming. Milling, turning, hardening.
We can do all that in the Busse group of companies. And even more besides: the company acryl-decor Busse GmbH & Co. KG has been working in the field of POS products, furniture and advertising materials for around 25 years.

Busse Heizplattentechnik GmbH has 50 employees and forms the core business unit of the group. Busse Fertigungstechnik GmbH, the third company in the group, manufactures custom-made and precise drawing parts on CNC-controlled machine tools.


We have been engineering high-performance and individually tailored solutions for heating plates and press tools for more than 30 years. Our customers come from all areas of industry and the skilled trades.


Rosel and Horst Busse found the company in 1986. Eight employees start off manufacturing heating plates and press tools for the woodworking industry in a small, rented workshop.


The company deploys its first, computer-controlled (CNC) milling machine for the production of press tools.


Rosel and Horst Busse invest in a new production facility in the Industrial Estate North in Espelkamp in the German region East Westphalia. A production area covering 2,400 m2 is built along with 400 m2 of office space.


The company puts its first CAD system into operation and obtains DIN EN ISO 9001 certification in order to adapt to the changing requirements of its customers. 1994 also sees the completion of a new warehouse with a floor space of 840 m2.


The production area is enlarged by a further 375 m2, and at the same time the machine park is extended by an additional 3 CNC milling machines. Under the name Acryl-Decor, Busse opens up a new business field during this period: acrylic and plastics processing for the promotional product and visual merchandising market and for shop fitting and commercial construction.


The company grows steadily: a further production hall with a floor space of 2,500 m2 commences operations.


The family-run business sets itself up for the future: Thorsten Busse, son of Rosel and Horst Busse, is appointed to the management board.


The machine park now comprises 11 CNC milling machines. The portal machining centre "matec-30 p" enables computer-aided processing on an area of 7,500 x 2,900 x 1,200 mm. Design and programming are carried out at 4 CAD/CAM workstations, and a press with dimensions of 6,000 x 2,200 mm is available for the production of flat heating plates.


Rosel and Horst Busse leave the management of the company. Petra Hoffmeyer (née Busse) succeeds them as new managing director. She now guides the fortunes of the company together with Thorsten Busse.


The Busse Group grows: Busse Fertigungstechnik GmbH is founded.


Acryl-Decor becomes an independent subsidiary and moves into a new 1,600 m2 production hall constructed on the company premises in Espelkamp.


Quantum leap in product quality: with a size of 9,200 x 2,800 mm, Busse Heizplattentechnik GmbH provides the largest one-piece foam trays manufactured to date.
