About us

110% MIXING SOLUTIONS

This is the claim that reflects ystral's aspiration. Behind it lies the commitment and heart and soul of each and every one of us - for example, in the project planning, design or manufacture of mixing and powder wetting machines, as well as process plants. This statement is regularly confirmed by our customers.
We ystral employees are highly motivated and always put our heart and soul into our work. It is natural for us to go the extra mile for our customers. This commitment is encouraged and maintained by an exceptionally good working atmosphere. The owners' appreciation of us employees is very great and palpable. The owners of ystral are the three brothers David, George and Peter Manke. They took over the company in 2005, after David and Peter Manke had previously been managing directors for seven years.

 


Karl Prem, Peter and David Manke (f.l.t.r.)

Since 2005, sales have increased from EUR 10 million to EUR 42 million (2018).  A solid, organic growth, which is reflected in the increase in the number of employees from 80 to 270 (2018).

In 2019, the management team was expanded to include Karl Prem as commercial director.

In addition to the headquarters in Ballrechten-Dottingen near the French and Swiss borders, subsidiaries were established in Singapore (2011), Bangalore (India, 2013) and Beijing (China, 2018). The reason for this is the strong international demand - we have thus followed our customers to Asia, on this continent the potential is incredibly large. So far, our export share of sales is 60% (2018).

ABOUT US

Living our values

110% Mixing Solutions

Our slogan communicates what we aim to deliver: 110% MIXING SOLUTIONS. Each and every one of us stands behind this with full commitment. 110% MIXING SOLUTIONS means going the extra mile for you – in project work and in designing and building mixing and powder-wetting machines and process technologies.

Specialised expertise

We love thinking outside the box, experimenting and optimising, drawing upon our tremendous know-how. We endeavour to ensure that our collective knowledge is shared as widely as possible within our company. This ensures that you get tailored process solutions that deliver added value.

Responsibility
Responsibility

We take responsibility for our work and results. Comprehensive consulting combined with testing at the ystral Technology Centre enable us to give you a process guarantee that affords you the security you need. In every step of the process chain.

Drive

Our drive is revealed in that gleam in our eyes when we are working on our independent initiative to deliver optimal results. When we are giving that little bit extra to derive the best possible solution for you, taking advantage of the freedom we enjoy to explore creative possibilities.

INNOVATION

Research and development at ystral

Ideally prepared personnel and very experienced development department guarantee the best results: Individual processing systems are one of our core skills. In reality, each system is different as there are different conditions applicable for interior wall paints than, for example, for chocolate mass. For the workers that means the variety and motivation at the same time: We love these types of challenges, as many innovations only arise during the course of a project. Thanks to the level of individualisation required for the systems we are almost obligated to develop new innovations.
