On May 21, BAUM Kunststoffe GmbH is founded by Roland Baum.
Within the last 30 years, our small, family-run business has grown to a stable, independent, medium-sized and internationally successful industrial company. Today, approximately 200 employees at BAUM ensure that fluids and gases are reliably carried only to where they should. Our area of expertise is the design of highly corrosion-resistant pipelines. We are the market leader in this area as we consistently drive forward developments and set standards with our processing techniques.
Our customers, for example those of the chemical and pharmaceutical sector, value our products as they guarantee a smooth and safe operation. State-of-the-art technology, comprehensive know-how of innovative materials as well as a long-term cooperation with qualified suppliers – this is what makes us a competent partner when it comes to lined, highly corrosion-resistant pipeline systems.

We are satisfied only when our customers are. To live up to this objective, we give our best every day - flexibly, creatively and with high quality requirements. Whether standard parts, variants or special solutions - there are hardly any parts that we do not manufacture in our own steel construction and our modern plastic processing. The result is convincing: high-quality piping parts with PTFE / PFA or PP lining, hoses and expansion joints. At a vertical range of manufacture of 90 %,
we can confidently say: BAUM provides you with everything from a single source. Our range covers the production of the steel parts with modern welding machines as well as the paste extrusion of PTFE semifinished products using extruders developed for special processes and also the lining process effected by means of automated processes. Obviously, we can also offer special varnishes. ‘Everything under one roof’ means for you: efficient processes without unforeseeable delays. All steps are documented in detail and are traceable for you at any time.
As a customer, you and your individual requirements are always in the focus of our actions. From the initial contact, service and customer care are our central values. At Baum you get everything from one single source – from an individual part to a complete piping system. This allows us to respond to your specific concerns flexibly and in the short term and to allow full bent to our creativity when it comes to special solutions. Our international sales and service network guarantees that, even abroad, you will receive your product without delay. What exactly does that mean for you? Right from the beginning of a project, you have a personal contact on site,
a person who understands your specific requirements and converts them into tailor-made solutions.You can rely on us: The right pipe with the appropriate lining is delivered on the construction site on schedule, cleanly packaged and labeled for the installing company.

Moreover, everyone intending to use our products will benefit from the free training offered by the BAUMAcademy.

Quality, Reliability and Sustainability
Responsibility towards products, people and the environment
We do not compromise on the quality of our products. This requires not only an optimal industrial production, but also includes classical manual work. You can be assured that all items leaving our premises are checked thoroughly beforehand. We deliver all around the world and it goes without saying that we have the appropriate certificates and approvals. The entire production process is accompanied by tests, which are continuously monitored and evaluated by our quality management. Focus is put on density, tensile strength, elongation at break, cavity content, leakage resistance and rheological analysis. In addition to that, many different other tests are self-evident to us. Success proves us to be right – but this is not a reason for us to sit back. We, ourselves, develop constantly and so do our products: permanent innovations are our driving force to become even better.
BAUM goes green
As a manufacturer of piping parts, we are not only obligated to deliver faultless products, but we are also responsible for environmental issues. That is why we constantly optimize our production, consciously deal with resources and set ourselves apart through an exemplary waste separation.
"We give it up" - that was our motto at the beginning of 2014: Today we are very proud to encounter cigarette smoke within authorized areas only. The non-smoking policy on our premises is highly appreciated by both non-smokers and former smokers.
