With the support of the world’s largest technical network for bulk materials as well as know-how from over 60 years’ experience in plant engineering, they constantly make improvements and develop innovative processes and new technologies.

This strong “heartbeat” that emanates from our control center in Friedrichshafen is felt all around the world. With production facilities as well as subsidiaries and representative offices all around the world, we are able to serve our markets with speed, flexibility and the utmost proximity to our customers.

The economic strength of our company due to its foundation-based structure, inherited from the Graf Zeppelin Stiftung (foundation) set up in 1908, gives us financial strength and is the basis for the long-term and successful partnership with our customers.

Zeppelin has a long history of silo production: Aluminum containers were being welded even in the early 20th century, during the company’s airship era.


The manufacturing of products necessitates a wide range of mixing solutions, which is where Zeppelin mixers in various designs come into their own.



Zeppelin’s automation concepts manage your processes effectively, efficiently, and clearly. All processing units are from a single source and networked together.
