Visit to MK Versuchsanlagen in Muecke – Efficient solutions for cleanrooms
18.9.2019 Giessen/Muecke. “We have many top companies here in Central Hessen that are on the move with innovative ideas – but we have to talk more about them.” Dr. Christoph Ullrich, President of the District Council of Giessen, regularly visits the region to find out how companies not only strengthen the Giessen RP district with its five districts between Limburg and Schlitz, Muenchhausen and Hungen economically, but also make Central Hessen more attractive through their presence. This time he worked for MK Versuchsanlagen in Muecke, which is a leader in solutions for so-called cleanrooms.
The company, which is “a genuine family business”, as owner and managing director Michael Keil explains right at the start of the tour, creates the best quality in modern cleanroom technology with its work and thus guarantees the protection of people and products. In many industries, such as the pharmaceutical industry or food production, work and production under cleanroom conditions are essential. The glove testing system, which is another core business of MK Versuchsanlagen, is also connected to this. In order to work in cleanrooms and to ensure that no impurities can get into them, the company works with attached gloves. With the company’s glove testing system, it is possible to check quickly and accurately whether they are tight.
According to the company owner, the company has been on the market for “30 years” and has developed strongly in terms of topics, space and personnel. It all started with five employees who focused on biotechnological plant construction on a pilot scale for research purposes. The company continues to develop: the product range for pharmaceutical interface solutions is expanded, metalfree cleanroom technology and workstations follow, safety systems and innovations in plant construction are further developed, modern 3D production plants are designed and its own hardware and software are developed.
In the meantime, more than 80 employees work for the company, which Dr. Dirk Rosencrantz from the management describes as a “world product leader”. Owner Michael Keil is certain that they will “continue to grow”. Particularly in the area of glove testing systems, the company is “two years ahead of the other companies and thus attractive for the world market, but also as an employer in the region”.
District president Christoph Ullrich, which uses itself also in its function as chairman of the association central Hessen registered association for the increase of the identity of the region central Hessen, said during the tour: “I do not only surprise today, but again and again, which companies are resident in the region and which for products these manufacture.” Christoph Ullrich was particularly impressed by the glove testing systems.
