DENMARK – Bühler, a global leader in food processing solutions, has unveiled its ambitious plans to relocate its Biscuit Business Unit and Nordics Services & Sales (SAS) organization to state-of-the-art offices in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

This move coincides with Haas-Meincke A/S’s renaming to Bühler Denmark A/S, symbolizing its complete integration into the Bühler Group since its acquisition in 2018.

Morten Riisager, Managing Director of Bühler Denmark and Head of Business Unit Biscuit, and Christian Salvatori, Managing Director of Bühler Services & Sales organization in the Nordics, jointly announced the move, marking a significant milestone in the company’s evolution.

This relocation is a significant milestone in our company’s development. It creates a Bühler powerhouse in the Nordics, lays the foundation for advancing our biscuit business globally, and reinforces our presence in the Nordic countries,” stated Riisager and Salvatori.

The move to Copenhagen is poised to offer enhanced collaboration opportunities for approximately 240 Bühler employees. It will provide modern office spaces and meeting zones conducive to innovation. 

Moreover, the new office’s strategic location will facilitate customer visits and industry events, fostering a vibrant ecosystem for business growth.

Our Nordic customers will benefit from a simpler and more powerful local organization and an increased service and sales performance,” highlighted Salvatori.

Riisager emphasized the integration of the biscuit business into Bühler Group’s portfolio, which expands customer access to a wider range of solutions.

Complementing the new office setup is the Biscuit Application & Training Center, strategically situated opposite the offices. This center offers customers a platform to innovate and refine processes and products.

In a parallel move to streamline production, Bühler plans to consolidate the manufacturing of ovens for biscuit and cracker lines in Roedkaersbro, Denmark, and upstream equipment production in Leobendorf near Vienna, Austria. 

This optimization of the production footprint underscores Bühler’s commitment to efficiency and innovation.

Johannes Wick, CEO of Grains & Food at Bühler Group, underscored the strategic significance of the relocation and consolidation efforts. 

The investment in this new infrastructure reaffirms our commitment to Denmark and our expertise in the biscuit and cracker segments. It also strengthens our capabilities in the Northern European market, where we see significant growth potential.”
