Since its incorporation in 1984, Burkert USA (Burkert Contromatic Corp.) has been a process automation industry favorite for measurement and control systems of liquids and gases. Although the parent company, Christian Bürkert GmbH & Co. KG, has been around since 1946, the first USA based location opened in the City of Orange, just a few miles from the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. While Burkert USA still operates a facility in Southern California, the addition of a 173,000 square-foot building complex on a 98-acre campus in Huntersville, North Carolina opened in April of 2017, ushering in new system building and manufacturing capabilities in the United States to keep up with the increased market demand for Burkert solutions.
In addition to celebrating 35 years in the United States this year, Burkert USA (Burkert Contromatic Corp.) has officially changed our name to Burkert USA Corp. The addition of the USA to our legal name signifies the commitment that our global brand, Burkert Fluid Control Systems, is placing on the US market in our continued growth and business expansion in the North American region. It also eliminates some of the confusion that the word Contromatic may have caused over the past few decades if you could imagine.
We are pleased to continue the legacy of providing superior technological solutions in the measurement and control to our customer partners in the USA and look forward to the next 35 years of industry advancement in the world of process automation.
Cheers from our entire team at Burkert USA Corp.!
