Close cooperation between business and ­science

In mid-April 2012 a joint research agreement between HAVER & BOECKER and the affiliated institute of the South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences (WGS ­Scientific Association of South Westphalia) was signed at the Institute for Innovation in Oelde (Fig.). The South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences and HAVER & BOECKER have been successfully cooperating in extra-­occupational and educational courses of study in Oelde for five years. Now through joint research and development projects, business and science can dovetail even further. HAVER & ­BOECKER will apply the scientific findings to new products for the markets of tomorrow.


The first research order involves the field of measurement and control technology and encompasses a period of two years. Specifically, the mid-size manufacturer of packing machines aims to develop intelligent filling systems that can regulate themselves during the filling process. In addition to technical solutions, the focus is also on business advantages. What is special about the project is that work-and-study students in Oelde are involved, and thus are able to benefit from practical experience. The student is accompanied by a scientific worker on site.


This joint research cooperation is another investment in research and development by HAVER & BOECKER, and thus in the company’s future, which this year looks back at 125 years of success. The resolute expansion of innovation management and more employees with special skills are the answers to the increasingly complex customer requirements and the economic necessity to make production processes more productive and efficient.
