Pioneering sustainability and innovation in brewhouse processes

At Ziemann Holvrieka, we believe that progress and innovation are crucial to achieving optimal performance and reliability in modern and efficient breweries. Our dedicated team of engineers is committed to pushing the boundaries of brewing technology through continuous research and development (R&D). Our focus is clear: delivering the best beers while increasing sustainability, efficiency, flexibility, and energy-saving capabilities.

Pilot Plant: Where Innovation Takes Shape

Our engineers don’t just understand the brewing process; they live and breathe it. With our pilot plant located in Ludwigsburg, we have the perfect platform to thoroughly test and develop new processes under realistic conditions. This enables us to ensure that every innovation is market-ready, delivering optimal performance and meeting the highest standards of reliability.

Objectives of Our R&D Efforts:

  1. Technology research & development to stay at the forefront of brewing innovations.
  2. Process control and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) implementation for streamlined operations.
  3. Training for customers and Ziemann Holvrieka staff to maximize the potential of our technologies.
  4. Presentation of state-of-the-art brewing technology to the brewing community.
  5. Collaborations with suppliers, institutes, and customers to drive collective progress.
  6. Continuous development of new and improved technologies to meet industry demands.

Process Research & Development: Advancing Together

We strongly believe in the power of collaboration. In addition to our in-house efforts, we work closely with partners, customers, leading institutes, and universities to drive innovation and explore new frontiers in brewing technology. Through shared knowledge and expertise, we aim to pioneer solutions that benefit the entire brewing industry.

Product Developments: Unleashing Brewing Creativity

Our pilot brewery offers you the opportunity to explore, test, and develop new technologies from scratch.
