Egon Schumacher celebrates his 80th birthday!
As Managing Director for many years, Egon Schumacher has shaped LUBING and led it to international success. At the end of May, the jubilarian celebrates his 80th birthday - and is still connected to LUBING.
After company founder Ludwig Bening was killed in a car accident in 1968, Egon Schumacher, who was only 27 years old at the time, took over the management and operations of LUBING Maschinenfabrik. In the coming years, he decisively drove forward the focus on technology for animal husbandry, the development of new products and the expansion of production capacities for drinking nipples. The development of the international subsidiaries and foreign representatives also took place under his aegis - initially with a French branch. Since the restructuring of LUBING in 1977, Schumacher has also been a shareholder of the GmbH, as well as managing director and shareholder of BARKU Kunststofftechnik GmbH & Co. KG, which was founded in the same year. After 38 years of successful company management, he handed over the reins to Markus von der Assen in 2006, but has remained with LUBING to this day as Chairman of the Advisory Board.
Today, LUBING is an internationally active company with a workforce of well over 500 employees, a production area of around 20,000 m² in Germany alone and 43 foreign representatives and subsidiaries worldwide. An impressive achievement that was shaped by Egon Schumacher in a very special way – through diligence, strategic skill and last but not least: common sense. With an unconditional will for innovation and quality, he has developed LUBING into a global player in intensive cooperation with employees and partners from the region and international business.
Happy 80th birthday!
All friends, partners and companies who feel connected to Egon Schumacher can also offer their congratulations online on the schumacher.lubing.de website.
A very rare anniversary
Annegret Müller is honored today for half a century at LUBING.
In April 1971, Annegret began her training as an industrial clerk and has subsequently worked in the accounting department until today.
Annegret's always friendly and cheerful manner has made her a very special colleague during this time.
The large number of colleagues who participated in this anniversary is impressive proof of this. Unfortunately, due to corona-related constraints, the celebrations turned out to be quite different from what had been planned.
Since after five decades the retirement age has been reached, we say goodbye today, with great appreciation, to our Annegret on her special anniversary day into retirement.
We all thank you, dear Annegret, and wish you all the best.
Donation handover December 2020
Traditionally, we have invited the donation recipients to us shortly before Christmas and handed over the symbolic donation checks. This year, unfortunately, it was not possible. However, we used the only remaining opportunity. We invited only one guest. Anne Siemering, the children's fire department warden, visit us on behalf of the Barnstorf children's fire department and the other beneficiaries. As you can read in the article of Martina Kurth-Schumacher in our local newspaper "Kreiszeitung", we distributed the donation broadly this year. Besides the children's fire department Barnstorf we donated to the network against domestic violence, the DRK kindergartens Barnstorf "Villa Kunterbunt" and "Holzwurm", the Interessengemeinschaft Gesundes Leben IGEL e.V. and for a dolphin therapy.
With this message we say goodbye to you for the year 2020 and wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a good start into the New Year.
World Egg Day
Yes - the egg also has its own special day: World Egg Day takes place every year on the second Friday in October.
The World Egg Day was brought into being in 1996 by the "International Egg Commission", the international association of egg producers. All over the world, events and celebrations take place this year on Friday, October 9th.
LUBING Young Generation Team 2020
Six new trainees were welcomed on 3rd of August 2020 at the headquarter of LUBING Maschinenfabrik in Barnstorf.
Unfortunately, the welcome procedure for the new trainees was different this year than usual due to Corona. The LUBING trainers welcomed the new trainees, albeit with distance, but no less warmly. Erik Felk on his training as a metalworking technician. Glenn Klein will become an electronics technician for industrial engineering and Arne Huntemann will become a mechatronics technician. Colin Adams and Lenny Kramer are trained as industrial mechanics. Agnes Schleich starts her training as an industrial clerk in the administration department.

In its long training tradition, LUBING has already trained many of its own junior staff and is well positioned for the future with currently 16 trainees and over 200 employees in Barnstorf.
Improvement of Pad-Climate-System
Access to the spray tube is now much easier with the new designed deflector. The new deflector can now be folded up in the modified holders, allowing quick access to the spray pipe for inspection or cleaning.
In addition, we now also offer a splash guard profile for mounting on the water gutter. This reduces possible splash water, especially important for applications of the Pad-Climate-System indoors.

Adaptation of the visitor rules
With the Lower Saxony amendment ordinance on the protection against new Infections with the Corona virus from 24.04.2020, it will again be possible to receive visitors at LUBING from 04.05.2020. However, in addition to compliance with all hygiene rules, the prerequisites for this are wearing a mouth and nose protector, an entry in our visitor list and, of course, compliance with the social distance rule (1.5 m as far as possible).
We also ask all visitors to make an appointment by telephone in advance to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
Strict adherence to the previous measures has enabled us to ensure trouble-free operation within the given possibilities. We would like to continue this in the future and ask everyone to behave further more in an exemplary manner.
Many thanks in advance!
Actual message about COVID-19
We consider it is our duty to participate in the official recommendations to slow down the spread of infection Covid-19.
LUBING will continue to operate as normal which means that our sales, customer service and technical staff will remain available to support our customers in their daily needs.
The measures we take in the area of our production to comply with the prescribed contact restrictions are demanding a great deal from the LUBING staff. We are grateful for this commitment and appreciate this attitude of solidarity, which is not a matter of course in these difficult times.
As we also need to be supplied for our production, we work closely with our suppliers and forwarders to ensure that the right measures are taken for our supply chains.
This will enable us to achieve the same production targets in the near future, albeit under different circumstances. Should bottlenecks occur, we will do our utmost to minimise any delay for the benefit of our customers.
The only visible change at LUBING will be the restricted access to our premises for visitors, customers and suppliers in order to limit personal contacts which are not absolutely necessary.
Like you, we are closely following the very dynamic changes during this time, and we will continue to keep you informed of the effects of developments at LUBING.
Keep your physical distance, but let us get through this time side by side.
Wind Power History
LUBING is donating a wind power pump from the early 1960s on permanent loan to the German Wind Power Museum.
LUBING Maschinenfabrik was founded in 1949 by Ludwig Bening in Barnstorf, Lower Saxony. In the early years, various products that were needed were manufactured. Initial production also included wind power pumps for supplying water to cattle on grassland. But the interest of the mechanical engineer Ludwig Bening in the wind power plants was particularly pronounced. The range of wind power pumps (trade name: LUBING Windkraftpumpen) soon became the most important product area in the company.
The blades of the wind power pumps were initially bent sheets.
But already since 1955 polystyrene was used for the production of blades. This was another reason why the sale of wind power pumps reached its peak in 1960.
The increasing export share to neighboring countries such as the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Denmark, but also overseas such as Mexico and Chile also contributed to this.
The blades were later made of other plastics by injection moulding. In addition to the 4 and 6-blade wind power pumps, wind power pond aerators were also added to the product range.
LUBING Maschinenfabrik still manufactures wind turbines today, but only in very small quantities. Cord Kütemeyer, employed at LUBING since 1975, assembles them, sometimes even working at home.
For the German Wind Power Museum, he has reconditioned an old rotor head from the early 1960s from his collection. With a new pump, new blades and new mast, this turbine was handed over to the Wind Power Museum today on permanent loan.
With this installation, a piece of the company history will now be preserved for posterity in the museum.
We are very happy about this project and hope that this almost 60 year old turbine, especially for the young visitors, will be able to illustrate for a long time to come how easily wind power was and still is used.
New Turkey drinker EasyLine 2.0
With this enhancement EasyLine 2.0 succeeded in further improving the water supply to the animals and also thereby facilitating ac-cessibility to the nipple. The proven principle with pendulum, bowl and nipple remains un-changed. With the new turkey nipples Art. 4001-4, which are now arranged to the side of the pendulum, we have achieved an even longer service life of the drinker and thus increase the reliability of the water supply even further due to two nipples per cup. Maintenance is made much easier by attaching the double nipple pendulum with a socket pin.
New service for you:

LUBING 70th anniversary
On Friday, 06th of September 2019 the 70th anniversary of the company LUBING was celebrated on the company premises. In the afternoon all employees and their families, as well as pensioners and our neighbours from Lubingstraße were invited. With 400 seats, our dispatch department was transformed into a large café. After coffee, cake, ice cream and cold drinks, the guests started a tour through the company. Besides the historical development of the company some of our current production processes could be seen.
In the evening the LUBIläum was duly celebrated with all employees and guests of the agent meeting in one of the newly taken over halls.
Agent Meeting group 2019
In the first week of September, 70 years after the company was founded, representatives of the worldwide subsidiaries and agencies met to exchange ideas with the representatives of LUBING Germany. The following days were accompanied above all by intensive product training, a supporting programme ensured the festive character of the meeting. On 6.9. the anniversary week reached its climax with a joint company celebration of all representatives and employees on the
International agent meeting
70 years of company history make 2019 a special year for LUBING from Barnstorf. The 5th international agent meeting took place again in Barnstorf at the company headquarters with representatives of subsidiaries and branches. Almost 60 guests from 30 countries came to learn about new product developments and to discuss the worldwide development processes in agricultural animal husbandry.
LUBING Young Generation Team 2019
Five trainees, one dual student and one annual trainee were welcomed at the Barnstorf headquarters of LUBING Maschinenfabrik on August 1, 2019.
This year, in which LUBING celebrates its 70th anniversary, Andrej Limberg started his training as a machine and plant operator. Levin Kenneweg is trained as an electronics technicians for operations technology and Alireza Jahangiri as a specialist for metal technology. Konrad Book began his training as an industrial clerk in administration, where Ann-Katrin Zillig also completed her annual internship. At our research center, Lennard Greve started his training as a technical product designer and Stefan Aßling his dual studies in mechanical engineering.
The group photo, this time with the trainers Lena Leukering (right) and Michael Schelhas (left) at the start of the training with a clear reference to the upcoming 70th anniversary celebration, which will take place in September. We are proud of our long history and are well positioned for the future with currently 13 young people in training.
NEW! LUBING D-Line pump units
Change of the Top-Climate-System product range to a modular design
In order to meet the requirements of the various markets more flexibly, we are planning a changeover of the product range at the Top-Climate-Systems. The Eco pump units will initially be affected by the changeover.
The future modular design will allow many new combinations for individual adaptation. In the future, we will therefore be able to cover a large number of individual variants with a small number of modules.
Symbolic donation cheque handover in February 2019
Traditionally, the donation cheques were handed over to the recipients shortly before Christmas. Last year, however, this did not fit and so an appointment was made this year. During the visit in the spring-like February 2019 from Mrs Schäfer from the primary school Eydelstedt and Mr Stubbe from the booster club "Förderverein Eydelstedt" (both for the family and education centre Eydelstedt) as well as Mr Pastor Schröder for the food bank "Tafel Barnstorf" and Mr Rattay from the historical society "Heimatverein Barnstorf" the donation cheques were handed over symbolically.
Many thanks to the numerous visitors of our booth!
Our international LUBING team was at your disposal at EuroTier 2018 for all questions regarding the pig product range in Hanover.
This year LUBING was represented at the EuroTier, without the World Poultry Show, only with the product range pigs.
Many visitors were particularly interested in our stand at the first time presented waste air purification with the CleaningCubes. This modular multi-stage system was presented with a complete module for an air volume of 25,000 m³/h thanks to the latest technology, which enables smallest sizes. The control of the CleaningCubes, adapted to the ventilation rate, reduces operating costs to a minimum.
Here is a short video of the exhibition stand:
LUBING Accessories for Conveyor-Systems
New accessories for LUBING Conveyor-Systems
The LUBING lift columns have been completely revised to provide a more flexible installation. Drive shafts and struts are now adjustable. This allows a quicker adaptation to the structural requirements. The drop protection for securing the Lift-System has been adapted to the current technical state of the art. Furthermore, the LUBING lift columns are available for different transfer heights depending on customer requirements. On request also special voltages can be taken into account.
The egg counter EMEC enables the reliable counting of eggs already on the Conveyor-System. In addition to the daily sum of eggs, the display also shows the current transport rate in eggs per hour. The EMEC egg counter is available for widths of 350, 500 and 750.
To guarantee an optimal lubrication of the Conveyor-System, we offer optional accessories for the LUBING drip oilers. A float switch can be used to actively monitor the level in the oiler reservoir. If the oil level is too low, the control system can either trigger an alarm or stop the Conveyor-System.
The drip oiler timer Uni Control can be programmed according to the LUBING lubricating instruction for drip oilers. The controller automatically switches the drip oiler based on the operating hours of the Conveyor-System. This ensures a uniform and safe lubrication.
LUBING Young Generation Team 2018
Five new trainees started at the Barnstorf headquarters on 01.08.2018.
Mr. Elver Abazaj started his training as a machine and plant operator. Rune Scheland is trained as a cutting machine operator. Markus Bruna is trained as a specialist in warehouse logistics and Louis Gruetter as a specialist in metal technology. Jannik Wacker started his training as an industrial clerk.
The group photo this time with the trainers Lena Leukering and Wilfried Finke to the training start, belongs meanwhile already to our tradition and we are proud to be able to train at present 15 young people.
VIV Europe 2018
Our international LUBING team was at your disposal at VIV Europe 2018 for questions in the field of Drinking-, Conveyor and Climate-Systems. Our new products such as the Optima E-Control and the water wall, where own pictures could be represented, were the highlights on the exhibition booth.
LUBING Accumulator table
Our accumulator tables have been technically improved with the new frame design. The further development of the plastic elements is now the basis for the robust but easy-to-clean accumulator table mat. These optimizations facilitate transport and assembly of the accumulator tables. In addition to the available standard dimensions of the accumulator tables, we can also take special requests into account.
NEW! LUBING SteelMaster
At the development of this stainless steel nipple, special attention was paid to the increased hygiene requirements. As with the CombiMaster nipple, which has the same properties but a plastic housing, the optimum water supply for the animals is paramount. The flow rate is adapted to the needs of the respective bird age. Because of the climatic influence on the water demand, we have developed two variants with different flow rates. The SteelMaster item 4020 has a higher flow rate and should therefore always be used with a drip cup. With the SteelMaster item 4021, the flow rate is slightly lower and can be used without a drip tray. Further information can be found here: SteelMaster
