BüchnerBarella Holding GmbH & Co. KG

BüchnerBarella is a nationwide insurance broker with over 260 experts. The company always approaches its customers, providing help and support wherever it is needed. And has been doing so since 1922 - and will certainly continue to do so in the future.

Together with its insurance partner BüchnerBarella, ZVO has created a specific and exclusive insurance solution for the industry covering the entire electroplating and surface technology process chain. It contains numerous unique selling points and the best possible price/performance ratio. As a company member of the ZVO, you can secure these benefits, among others:

  •     Waiver of underinsurance in property insurance (buildings and contents) and business interruption insurance
  •     Professional assessment of environmental risks, including current official authorisations
  •     industry-specific testing clause (unique on the market)
  •     Comprehensive, extended product liability including motor vehicle parts
  •     Co-insurance of processing damage to customer parts to be processed
  •     cancellation of the environmental exclusion in legal expenses insurance (unique on the market)
  •     Professional support in the event of major fire damage
  •     Permanent participation in developments and improvements in the scope of the ZVO insurance framework
  •     Comprehensive advice on the content and background of possible and sensible cover from underwriting brokers with many years of experience in electroplating and surface technology

Contract review, claims and liability management - what does this mean?

In all the company analyses carried out to date, it was not only possible to reduce the annual insurance premium with an identical performance comparison. At the same time, all analyses revealed considerable gaps in cover that could be closed by the contents of the ZVO industry insurance framework.

For example, 70 per cent of the companies analysed were underinsured due to insufficient sums insured. In nine out of ten companies, environmental risks were not adequately insured. The risks arising from liability under the Environmental Damage Act were not insured at any company. Large insurance gaps were also found in public liability insurance, and the so-called "testing clause" was agreed for product liability in all of the companies analysed. According to this clause, there is no insurance cover for products/processes that do not correspond to the state of the art or have not been sufficiently tested in any other way. Electroplating plants in particular are affected by this when processes are replaced or exchanged.

Balver Zinn

Balver Zinn is one of the leading suppliers of zinc anodes on the market, but our product range also includes anodes made of pure tin or tin-lead as well as special wires made of zinc, tin and lead. Thanks to many years of experience in the processing of non-ferrous metals, we supply our products to markets such as automotive, shipbuilding, corrosion protection and many more. With a production capacity of approx. 3000 tonnes per month in the zinc foundry alone, we can supply high-quality products flexibly.

In the field of galvanic corrosion protection, fine zinc anodes with a purity of at least 99.99% have been used for over 20 years. Due to the increasing importance of environmentally friendly processes and secondary processes (waste water technologies, etc.), the requirements for the purity of the metals used have now grown significantly. Balver Zinn therefore only uses fine zinc Zn 99.995 %. In order to optimise process parameters, zinc alloyed with aluminium can be used to stabilise the anodes.

Another special feature of the Balver Zinn programme is the variety of formats: pellets, hemispheres, solid spheres, billets, cast or rolled plates as well as special formats according to customer specifications leave nothing to be desired. Alloys for die-casting and hot-dip galvanising are produced individually on request and always using state-of-the-art technology. For shipbuilding, sacrificial anodes are offered with cast-in iron bands for direct attachment to the hull. Special formats can also be customised. We produce lead-free products for the electronics industry such as solders, solder pastes, fluxes and solder wires as well as special wires for all standard applications from wave soldering to hand soldering.

Our focus is on the customer and their production and processing requirements. Balver Zinn fulfils this requirement with individual productions and customised solutions.
Sustainability has not only been an issue for Balver Zinn since the introduction of e-CO2sol, it has always been a matter of course for us. We are committed to making the environment cleaner and protecting our fellow human beings with our products and services. The switch to lead-free materials and Balver Zinn's commitment to making its products more environmentally and people-friendly is a symbol of this. Balver Zinn will continue to act sustainably in the future and will always work together with our customers and partners to achieve our ecological goals.

Verein Deutsches Museum für Galvanotechnik e.V.

What is the purpose, what is the philosophy of our organisation?

Collecting exhibits
Collecting and preserving exhibits such as books, documents, machines and other materials from old and new times and presenting them in an appealing way is a natural part of a museum.
Over the years, a few enthusiasts have created an exhibition and a library that show that we are a museum of history but also of the present. In this way, we fulfil part of the educational mission of a museum.

Getting young people interested in our speciality
This is another part of our educational mission that we pay particular attention to. We want to familiarise young people with the field of electroplating and arouse their interest in this specialist area, which is so important for all modern technologies. To this end, we invite schoolchildren and trainees to visit us and provide information in a lecture with a film screening, a tour of the museum and a practical demonstration of electroplating.

Exploring the history of electroplating technology
In particular, the history of the specialised company at the Leipzig site, which was successively known as
- Dr Georg Langbein,   
- Langbein - Pfanhauser - Werke AG (LPW),
- VEB Galvanotechnik Leipzig (GTI),-
- and finally as Galvanotechnik Leipzig GmbH i.G. and i.L.
was extensively documented in publications and films until its demise in 1993. The development and sometimes also the demise of the successor companies also remains in focus.
Furthermore, documents and information on specialised electroplating companies worldwide are collected, archived and exhibited as far as possible.

Public relations
In addition to the publications mentioned above, participation in public events such as the Day of Industrial Culture, the Leipzig Technical Seminar, the ZVO Surface Days and the Museum Night is part of our public relations work.
In addition, exhibitions organised by other associations such as "plakat sozial e. v.", as well as corporate events and other events are held on our premises.

Provision of rooms for conferences and events
We provide rooms equipped with modern technology for seminars, training courses, company presentations, annual general meetings of other associations and similar events. This service has already been utilised several times and has helped to raise the profile of our association.

Research has shown that the German Museum of Electroplating is probably the only museum in the world that deals exclusively with electroplating technology.
