As the founding company of Franken Maxit Mauermörtel GmbH, Bergmann Kalk has been a force for development in the dry mortar industry for three decades. Since 1978, the company has been actively involved in the development of innovative product solutions. Over the years, innovative solutions for individual construction challenges have been developed and placed on the market under the world-famous maxit brand. The fact that Bergmann Kalk currently owns a large number of international patents and industrial property rights is clear evidence for the philosophy of innovation that has been put into practice at the company.
New Zealand – EZY MIX New Zealand
Founded in 1998, Nu-Age can look back on 20 very successful years in the production and sale of dry mortar products, e.g. for plasters and screeds, at its plant in Matamata, New Zealand. Nu-Age and Bergmann Kalk have been working in a close and friendly collaboration for years.
In 2018, Bergmann Kalk and Nu-Age decided to become partners. The two companies are entering into a technical and economic cooperation to boost the professional development and expansion of the Matamata plant, with the aim of securing market leadership for industrial mortars under the company name EZY-MIX in New Zealand.
Thailand – CHEMEMAN Thailand
The Chememan Group Thailand is the market leader in the South East Asia region for the production of burnt and unburnt lime products. The successful combination of the immense market experience of the company Chememan and the decades of experience in the production of dry mortar products of the Bergmann Group forms the basis of a successful partnership. In 2018, Chememan and Bergmann Kalk agreed to collaborate on the construction of a dry mortar plant on a modular basis with a capacity of between 10,000 and 100,000 tons of dry mortar per year. While the well-known standard products are marketed under the Chememan building materials brand ChemeMix, highly innovative products are marketed under the Bergmann building materials brand Bergmann Eco.
China – Bergmann ecosphere clever coating
Bergmann Kalk has been involved in the Chinese markets for years. Partnerships with successful sales companies guarantee that Bergmann paints based on hollow glass microspheres – made in Germany – enjoy great popularity in the Chinese market. Bergmann ecosphere interior and exterior paint is considered a real problem-solver when it comes to avoiding algae and mold infestation on facades and interior walls.
Research and development is a key sector for Bergmann Kalk. For this reason, we have deep connections to research institutes and universities in the field of building material technology in Russia. Significant product innovations are not least the result of joint research activities with the University of Moscow and the newly established laboratories of Bergmann Kalk.
Germany – Naturbaustoffe Huppenberger – building with straw
Green, resource-saving and non-toxic construction, in short: the development of an eco-friendly insulation material – the team around company founders Gerhard Huppenberger and the head of Bergmann Product Management Johannes Eberlein worked on this idea for years.
The question of the right raw material was quickly answered: straw, with its numerous positive properties, has been used for centuries as an insulating material for houses. The real challenge here was making an ecological binder and developing the process technology for economical industrial production. The fantastic result: straw insulating panels as an environmentally friendly insulation material, 100 per cent sustainably produced and fully recyclable.
The partnership is also fantastic: since 2020, the Huppenberger and Bergmann Kalk companies have been working closely in a joint venture.
