About us

Tradition in engineering over three generations

In 1945 Karl Ahlborn founded a small engineering workshop in order to meet the needs of the local ceramic industry for special purpose machines and tools. As early as 1949, bakery transport racks were manufuctured for an increased utilization.

Practically from the very beginning, his son, Fritz Ahlborn, stood by his side. As imaginative designer and successful entrepreneur he ran the company for more than 50 years and further developed as well as focused our core expertise on charging ovens.

Since 2006 his grandson, Dr.-Ing. Detlef Ahlborn, has been continuing the engineering tradition in its third generation. He and his team have decisively aimed at the business' innovative technology for oven charging. That is why nowadays, our product range extends from setters, tilting devices, automatic systems for loading rotating oven racks to fully automatic charging systems for deck ovens and reverse tunnel ovens.

We have been partners of well-known oven and bakery equipment manufacturers for decades and are very well grounded in linking proofing and baking processes by customized solutions.

Our company's philosophy has always been to design and construct sophisticated solutions in every detail which will enable our customers to fully exploit their rationalization potential. Only those who exhaust all the possibilities of low-cost and labor-saving production are able to remain competitive in the future. Even one single daily, a hundred fold recurring movement adds up to a decisive cost factor. This is exactly where we step in. Our products are elaborately designed down to the smallest detail and allow for an efficient production using state-of-the-art technology.
