LAUDA has expanded its range of Viscothermostats for manual and automatic viscometry. With this latest addition of thermostats, we have closed the gap between the economical ECO ET polycarbonate transparent baths and the powerful Proline PV viscothermostats. The new Viscotemp series supplements the robust, tried-and-tested stainless steel Viscothermostats with its excellent price-performance ratio. A first in its class, the Viscocool 6, has a small bath volume, an integrated Peltier cooling system, built-in lighting and a compact, space-saving design.
With the innovative use of Peltier technology, external cooling is not necessary in order to maintain the often required 20 or 25 °C conditions. The integrated Peltier cooling guarantees an operating temperature range of up to 15 °C below room temperature. Of course, all of LAUDA‘s Viscothermostats meet the high requirements of the international standards of viscosity measurement.

Dr. Gunther Wobser, President & CEO of the LAUDA Group, and his family lend their thoughts on the opportunities that come along with an investment in the foreign manufacturing facility in Terrassa, Spain—a suburb of Barcelona. With the fiscal crisis and employment problems throughout southern Europe, particularly in Spain and Portugal, foreign firms are buying into a talented work force and benefiting from their contributions on a global scale.
On September 8th, LAUDA-Brinkmann participated in the 4th Annual 5K Run & Walk to Benefit Homes for Our Troops®. This marks the third consecutive year that LAUDA-Brinkmann has supported this charitable cause with time, effort and monetary donations.
LAUDA-Brinkmann was the Silver Sponsor this year and also helped to provide supplies for the Water & Refreshment Stations throughout the race course. With a team of 27 runners and walkers, plus non-registered children, LAUDA-Brinkmann raised a total of $1040 in support of the BLSJ Charitable Foundation and the organization Homes for our Troops®.
The BLSJ (Builders’ League of South Jersey) Charitable Foundation and Homes for Our Troops® are non-profit, independent organizations. The organization, Homes for Our Troops®, specializes in helping those who have selflessly given everything for our country and returned home to the United States with severe disabilities and injuries. The BLSJ (Builders League of South Jersey) assists seriously injured servicemen and women and their immediate families with financial donations, building materials, professional work and the co-ordination of constructing a new home or converting the existing home to be disabled-friendly. LAUDA-Brinkmann was recognized during the closing ceremonies of the event with the 2012 BLSJ Team Award.
The new logistics center of the temperature specialist, LAUDA, received its grand opening on July 21st, during a summer party attended by more than 400 guests. In addition to the staff employed at the global headquarters in Lauda-Königshofen, more than 60 colleagues from the eight foreign branches were also present. Other guests included the LAUDA shareholders and the LAUDA sales representatives from Germany. Throughout the event, there were numerous live musical performances.
After construction, which lasted less than seven months, the new building will be ready for occupation by late August 2012. The modern building, which required a $2.85M USD (2.3 million Euro) investment, boasts poly-carbonate, translucent external walls and is situated at the center of the company compound. The new building serves as a central distribution point for raw material and other goods to the various product areas. As such, the process chain has been optimized by organizing the incoming goods for receiving inspection, storage, provision, material handling of parts to assembly and back, and the packaging of finished product through to dispatch. With an area of 8600 square feet (800 square meters) and a building height of 31 feet (9.7 meters), the new logistics center allows for stocking goods up to a height of 24 feet (7.5 meters) across a total of 1,150 different locations. The locations will be stocked and controlled by means of so-called “narrow aisle” trucks.
With the completed construction of the logistics center, the “STEP_3” milestone of the site development pro-gram has been achieved. The next construction phase, which will begin as early as September, includes the expansion of the production area. The expansion effort will increase existing production floor capacity by more than 17,220 square feet (1,600 square meters). The new production hall will then fully accommodate the as-sembly areas for constant temperature equipment and the measuring instruments. Also incorporated into the new production hall will be the service operations for constant temperature equipment.

The enormous increase in sales in recent years has necessitated an expansion of the LAUDA company premises. To this end, the breaking ground ceremony on December 15, 2011 laid the cornerstone for the construction of a new logistics center. This modern building with its semi-transparent, polycarbonate facade is being built in the middle of the company grounds. An investment sum of 2.3 million Euros ($3.04 million USD) has been earmarked for the initial construction phase. The new building should be ready for occupancy as early as July 2012 and is due to be inaugurated on July 20, 2012 within the scope of a grand summer fete with all of our employees.
Construction of the logistics center heralds the next phase of the 'STEP_3' (location development program) project. Located in the middle of the company grounds, the new building will supply material to various product areas. The process chain has been optimized by reorganizing incoming goods and incoming shipment inspection, warehousing, preparation, material transport of the parts to assembly and back, as well as the packaging of finished equipment for dispatch. Warehoused goods can be stored to the impressive height of 7.5 meters in a total of 1,150 storage bays over an 800-sqm area offering 9.70 meters of headroom. These storage bays are serviced by a so-called narrow aisle lift truck.
The world’s leading constant temperature specialist and Donaldson Company, Inc., one of the world’s most eminent manufacturers of filtration products and equipment, officially announced in Barcelona, Spain today the acquisition of Donaldson’s circulation chiller business by LAUDA. The former Donaldson chiller business, Ultrafilter S.L., Terrassa, Spain was established in 1966. With a staff of approximately 40, the company today manufactures “Ultracool” brand industrial circulation chillers with a capacity of up to 500 kilowatts. Ultrafilter S.L supplies major manufacturers of such equipment as printing presses, injection molding equipment, laser processing machines and sorting equipment across the globe. The circulation chiller business has significant growth opportunities that are outside of Donaldson’s focus on filtration.
Industrial circulation chillers enable LAUDA to broaden its product range and increase its attractiveness to manufacturers of industrial plant and equipment requiring machine cooling. The constant temperature specialist employs more than 350 staff and is planning an annual turnover of more than EUR 60 million. LAUDA’s Managing Director Dr Gunther Wobser is enthusiastic about the expansion of the business, “With the high-grade Donaldson industrial circulation chillers we can systematically extend our product range in the field of our core skill of liquid-based constant temperature technology. Our activities in industrial markets with our OEM thermostats and heating and cooling systems are already very successful. However, up to the present time we have been without attractively priced circulation chillers with high cooling capacities. With our effective sales organization and the LAUDA brand which is well-known across the world for constant temperature technology I am confidently expecting powerful synergies from this acquisition.“ The manufacturing site in Terrassa with its ultra-modern equipment is situated approximately 30 kilometers north-west of Barcelona. It will continue to be managed separately under the name of “LAUDA Ultracool“ and is expected to grow further in the coming years, not least thanks to the excellence in marketing and sales of the LAUDA Group. In addition to developing and manufacturing circulation chillers, the Spanish company will assume responsibility for sales support in Spain and Portugal. Marketing, sales and service activities will be taken over from the parent company in Germany as well as from the existing seven overseas subsidiaries and selected agencies and service partners.

The Secretary of State for the Economy, Richard Drautz, visits the LAUDA global headquarters
Following an invitation from managing director Dr. Gunther Wobser, the secretary of state from the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Baden-Württemberg, Richard Drautz, was briefed on the current situation and future perspectives of LAUDA. Dr. Gerhard Wobser, longstanding managing director and currently a member of the advisory board also took part in the meeting held at the company’s premises. Richard Drautz was accompanied by Dr. Siegfried Jaumann, deputy head of the Life Sciences Department at the Ministry of Economic Affairs. Also joining the discussions was Benjamin Denzer, regional chairman of the Main-Tauber FDP. Under the motto “Extending our lead“, Dr. Gunther Wobser presented the solid medium-sized company’s successful journey to its current position as global market leader in the manufacture of thermostatic equipment and systems, before then going on to elucidate the promising future perspectives.
Dr. Gunther Wobser explained that although LAUDA has been growing constantly for years, the company is currently undergoing a particularly strong course of expansion. The uninterrupted flow of incoming orders requires an outstanding degree of flexibility, maximum diligence and genuine team spirit from the approximately 300 employees. LAUDA is represented with its product groups in important growth industries and is the only supplier worldwide that offers optimal temperature throughout the entire value chain. Six subsidiaries with a total of 22 employees support the 100-plus LAUDA representatives abroad. Moreover, the booming LED business segment offers excellent long-term prospects for LAUDA. According to Dr. Gunther Wobser, “Efficient thermostatic equipment has a great future. As such, we must generate creative scope for development and seek out research cooperation partners, all of which will require courage and a watchful eye in equal measure. We also need more room to expand our manufacturing capacity.” As a result of the sustained growth, the LAUDA plant area is scheduled to undergo further expansion in the near future.
During the meeting, Dr. Gerhard Wobser, board member of the industry association SPECTARIS, drew attention to the significance of analysis, bio and laboratory technology in the Main-Tauber region. Dr. Gunther Wobser expressed his desire for a better rail link to the regional capital, which would also be of interest to the company due to the high-speed train to Paris. In addition, more university places for technical courses of study would benefit the Main-Tauber region in particular. Once youth moves away from the area, it is doubly difficult to win them back. In the course of discussion, state secretary Drautz and Dr. Jaumann advised the LAUDA management of special funding programs, particularly for innovations, and pledged their support.
LAUDA is the global leader in the manufacture of innovative thermostatic equipment and systems for science, application technology and production, as well as for high quality measuring devices. Quality products from LAUDA keep temperatures constant to an impressive 5 thousandth °C or make targeted changes in an area spanning -100 to 400 °C.
Under the terms of the partnership, LAUDA-Brinkmann and Controlled Temperature Solutions will work together to provide manufacturers, throughout the United States, with customized OEM solutions for targeted constant temperature requirements.
