Vogelsang’s 2020 growth attributed to biogas, agricultural markets
The company, based in Essen, Germany, grew its revenue to €134 million, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
By launching new products such as the XRipper XRG macerator for sewers and the UniSpread universal linkage, and adding greater working widths for its BlackBird trailing shoe system for the agricultural sector, Vogelsang responded to high market demand for innovative and targeted solutions.
Harald Vogelsang, managing director of Vogelsang, said: “We are pleased that we were able to expand our product range even in this year of crisis. We owe this success, in particular, to the discipline and flexibility of our employees. They followed the hygiene requirements we introduced early in the pandemic at our own initiative with great dedication and responsibility. That enabled us to avoid partial shutdowns due to COVID-19, and even hire 26 new trainees.”
Working with Danish firm BioCover, Vogelsang added the SyreN system to its range, which compensates up to 70% of ammonia losses in liquid manure spreading by adding sulphuric acid.
