brehmergroup welcomes BMW Motorrad for important project enquiry

This week we had a visit from BMW Motorrad. The customer wanted to get an overview of our sites in Nümbrecht and Wiehl as part of a current project enquiry. During the two-day visit, we gave the customer a comprehensive presentation of our diverse capabilities and expertise.

The new project will be nominated later this year and we hope to have convinced the customer accordingly.

16 and 17 December - Our Christmas market stand at the Klein organic farm in Reichshof

This year, our trainees and dual students are inviting you to the Christmas market at Biohof Klein in Reichshof, where they will be running their own stand. On 16 and 17 December, they will be selling candy floss, shopping tokens in the brehmergroup design, which were produced on our 3D printers, and key rings. You are welcome to drop by! We look forward to seeing you!

Trainee action: Christmas in a Shoebox

Last week, we were in full swing preparing to wrap presents as part of the "Christmas in a Shoebox" campaign. Anyone can take part in this campaign, organised by the Christian aid organisation Samaritan’s Purse, and bring joy to a child in need.

Last Friday, almost 50 parcels were packed. These can now be handed in at the collection point.

A big thank you goes to everyone who got so involved, especially our young colleagues who put so much effort into the organisation and implementation!

Florian Alt at the World Championship final - "HRC interested in Holzhauer-Honda"

On the last weekend of October, Florian Alt competed in the final round of the Superbike World Championship in Jerez, Spain, on his "IDM-winning motorbike". The entire Honda-Holzhauer team was able to gain a lot of valuable experience. High-ranking Honda managers visited the small private team from Germany after the races and expressed their appreciation to the team.

This was a very good opportunity for the brehmergroup to intensify its contacts with the world's largest motorbike manufacturer. Link: "HRC interessiert an Holzhauer-Honda"

We are all looking forward to the new 2024 season - the first test rides will begin soon.

Visit from the Marienberghausen and Oberelben volunteer fire brigades 

The Marienberghausen and Oberelben volunteer fire brigade visited us on Sunday morning with almost the entire team. 25 men and one woman inspected our new building in Elsenroth and provided valuable information on fire safety and behaviour in the event of a fire.

Afterwards, we were also invited to the Marienberghausen fire station for a hearty cold drink and a very tasty (typical german) "Spießbratenbrötchen".

We would like to thank the organisers OBM Jan Putzig, BI Roger Adolphs and all those present. Respect that you all dedicate your free time to this extremely important voluntary task!

brehmergroup at the second Campus Day 2023

At the second Campus Day of the year 2023 of the University of Applied Sciences (FHDW) at the Bergisch Gladbach campus, brehmergroup was again represented by our two dual students Ben Baldauf and Noah Neuser.
Ben and Noah were able to tell the prospective students first-hand about their experiences with the dual study course in Business Administration with a focus on Automotive Industry & Sales Management at the FHDW and with the brehmergroup as a practical partner company.
At the brehmergroup stand, our sample bridge was again in use, which impressively represented an excerpt of the brehmergroup product portfolio and was set up by our trainees. Mr.. Dr.-Ing. Alexander Brändle, Head of Corporate Cooperation and former Campus Director of the FHDW Bergisch Gladbach, was very impressed by our stand. (on the photo: from left to right Dr.-Ing. Alexander Brändle, Noah Neuser, Ben Baldauf)
The brehmergroup stand also caught the eye of two representatives of the Kölner Stadtanzeiger, so that it became the cover picture of the Campus Day article in the Kölner Stadtanzeiger. (see press article)


Visit from the Bundeswehr

This week will be exciting for us: For the first time, representatives of the German Armed Forces visited our new site in Elsenroth. The development of the projects is taking a very good, planned course. After about four hours of talks, the overall conclusion was positive. On Wednesday, the motorcycle manufacturer Triumph Motorcycles | For the Ride will visit us, and on Thursday and Friday Ducati | Motorcycles, Events and Racing.

An exciting and very successful month for Honda and Florian Alt

At the season finale of the World Endurance Championship (EWC) on 17.09., the Honda Viltais team and Florian Alt took an excellent 2nd place and evenleft the BMW factory team behind.

Florian's 3rd podium in a row at the prestigious "Bol d'Or" race was also a record.

And for Honda, the Viltais team was able to secure the manufacturers' championship (see photo).

Finally, last Sunday, the "IDM Final" 2023 took place in Hockenheim. Florian Alt deservedly leads Honda to victory after 13 titleless years in Germany 2023. ("IDM-Finale: Purer Nervenkitzel am Hockenheimring - Oberberg-Aktuell")
The year 2023 could hardly have gone better for Florian. This is his well-deserved reward after years of hard and concentrated teamwork. The season is actually over, but maybe there will be another highlight. We are curious!

Taiwanese partner visits brehmergroup

This week our partner from Taiwan visited us. The new location in Elsenroth was presented and we talked about interesting projects. Our partner is an internationally operating company and we have already been working together for several years.

brehmergroup visits Japan

The plan to develop the brehmergroup into a leading manufacturer of mechatronics for the two-wheeler industry is now becoming more concrete. 

In November 2022, two senior engineers from the Japanese motorbike manufacturer YAMAHA visited us in Elsenroth. The visit had such a positive response that an invitation for a return visit to Japan was immediately issued. We prepared the visit in detail and were pleased that five engineers at the YAMAHA headquarters in Iwata gave us the chance to present our technology and developments. We then received an invitation to participate in the SETC. This is a consortium of the four Japanese (big four) motorbike manufacturers which meets worldwide.

In addition, Florian Alt enabled us to make contact with the world's largest motorbike manufacturer, HONDA, during the 8-hour motorbike race in Suzuka. Of course, it is still a long way to go to gain a foothold as a supplier to the world market leader.

Also worth mentioning: Florian Alt came in a respectable 14th place with his Argentinian colleague Tati Mercado as well as Steven Odendaal from South Africa and the Honda Viltais Racing Team.

The brehmergroup welcomes three new trainees!

Today, 01.08.2023, we welcome three new faces to our company. Lia and Jonas are starting as industrial clerks and Maksim is beginning his training as a warehouse logistics specialist.
We wish them all a successful start to their careers and look forward to their active support!

Florian Alt continues on the road to success

Florian Alt is getting closer step by step to his goal of becoming international German champion.

On the last weekend in June in Most/Czech Republic, there was a flawless gala performance. The Honda Holzhauer Racing Team took commanding victories in both races. Once again Florian proved that with optimal preparation and reliable material he belongs to the absolute top in this hard-fought, international class. A double victory was the result.

On 22 and 23 July, there was another highly exciting event. Schleiz is the oldest race track in Germany - 100 years of motorbike racing on this exciting, but not harmless track.

The result was a victory for Florian in the first race and a 3rd place in the second race. Florian was thus able to extend his lead in the overall classification. The second run is started in the so-called "reverse grid procedure". However, this procedure is extremely dangerous on natural race tracks like Schleiz. Florian made this quite clear: Florian Alt: "No, thanks to reverse grid in the IDM"

Welcome to the team!

Alexandru Despot has been supporting us as an operating electronics technician in quality assurance and production since 17.07.2023. Peter Meinerzhagen will leave us on 31.08.2023 and Alexandru will take over all of Peter's tasks. We welcome him warmly and wish him a good start at brehmergroup!

High-ranking visitor from BMW Motorrad

Today we welcomed Mr Andreas Schuster-Woldan, Vice President of BMW Motorrad, at our new location in Elsenroth.

As Mr Schuster-Woldan was prevented from attending the day of our opening ceremony, we had the opportunity today to convince him in detail of our competences. In addition to various ongoing project topics, we were also able to show him the new premises in Elsenroth and in the Oberwiehl development centre. The future plans of the company were also presented and shared.

Ford visits the brehmergroup

Ford belongs to the top 10 of the automobile industry worldwide and celebrates its 100th anniversary in Cologne in 2025. This week, responsible gentlemen from the "Ford Special Accessories" division visited us. The gentlemen are employed at Ford in Cologne-Merkenich and were pleased about the intensive and constructive discussions with our gentlemen. As a farewell, a photo was "shot" in front of the new company building. 

The brehmergroup team is now optimistic that we will now also become a Ford supplier.

Press reported on our opening ceremony

The Oberbergischer Anzeiger reported on our well-attended opening ceremony in Nümbrecht. You can read the translated report "Neue Produktionsstätte in Elsenroth" (New production facility in Elsenroth) on our press page.


Successful project completion with top grade

The students of the Arnhem University of Applied Sciences successfully completed a project with brehmerinnovations in the field of industrial engineering.

The students developed the first concept for a new type of operating unit, the "Next Generation Remote", which uses a completely new approach to integrate joystick functions into capacitive display applications. The possibilities for this are manifold and allow modern and robust designs for operating units with low investment costs for applications in the "low" quantity range (from approx. 500 units p.a.).
brehmerinnovations thanks the motivated team of the Arnhem University.

Opening of the „Mechatronic Manufacturing Center Oberberg“

We are pleased to announce the official opening of the "Mechatronic Manufacturing Center Oberberg" in the Elsenroth industrial estate. The products developed by brehmergroup in the "Mechatronic Innovation Center Oberberg" in Oberwiehl will be industrialised, manufactured, stored and shipped here with immediate effect. 69 guests from 8 countries attended the opening.

Frank Grebe, member of the board of directors of the Sparkasse, appeared in person, Mayor Hilko Redenius and Michael Sallmann, head of the Oberberg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, gave introductory speeches. The importance of the brehmergroup in creating sustainable jobs and apprenticeships was emphasised.

Company founder Thomas Brehmer announced that 9 employees had already been hired at the Wiehl and Elsenroth sites this year. The programmes for the qualification and recruitment of highly qualified employees will continue to be pushed forward with full force. The joint project "Next generation remote control" of the Universities of Arnhem & Nijmegen (Prof. Peter Ishta and Prof. Martine Warnar), the University of Cologne/ Gummersbach Campus (Institute Director Prof. Dr. Florian Zwanzig) was presented by Managing Director Dipl.-Ing. Dennis Blättermann. 

The 8 students involved had travelled from Holland especially for this reason and presented the project with heart and soul. The student Lasse travelled by motorbike, as did an engineer from BMW-Motorrad.
Trendsetting mechatronics for motorbikes is one of the brehmergroup's most sustainable business fields. Managers from "Triumph motorbikes" from England, KTM-sportcycles from Austria and BMW-Motorrad used the opening to "network". But also representatives of well-known bus manufacturers (EvoBus, VDL), construction machinery and tractor manufacturers such as Claas, Hamm, JCB and Liebherr came and convinced themselves of the broad spectrum of the brehmergroup.
M.Eng Moritz Schmidt (technical manager) gave lectures on the complexity and challenges of "variant diversity in combination with small quantities" and "human machine interface". The lecture by Prof. Dr. Benedikt Schmülling, University of Wuppertal, will be held at a later date. All guests were pleased with the interdisciplinary exchange, interesting discussions, excellent catering and the entertaining supporting programme.
On Friday, 16 June, the employees and their families, suppliers and neighbours from the industrial estate were also able to get to know each other. This gave everyone who was interested a chance to get an idea of the bright, modern workplaces (all desks are electrically height-adjustable). To the delight of the children, there was a bouncy castle and a racing simulator for the older children.
The absolute highlight was a "reaction time game" developed by laboratory head B.Sc. Chris Koch during his studies. We all celebrated the winner Mr. Sascha Gaisbauer from the law firm Bauer, Soest & Partner.
The whole day was summarised in this video, which can be found on our YoTube channel.

Thanks to the entire organisation team around Daniela Lang for the great organisation - everyone agreed: next year we will celebrate again.

„Ride the future – together“

Florian Alt at the EWC/24h Spa-Francorchamps

After the successes for Florian Alt in the IDM and the first race of the EWC World Championship in LeMans, there was unfortunately a small setback for Flo in Spa. The training still went very well - top five - that was also the goal for the race. However, 24-hour races represent a maximum challenge for the team and the machine. This was also evident for the Honda Viltais Racing Team. Unfortunately, the fuel pump failed and the bike had to be pushed back almost half the way to the pits. Unfortunately, the team fell back to 20th place as a result. The technicians changed the fuel pump and the riders gave everything to make up for the lost places.

Fortunately, the weather remained almost stable and the riders around Flo66 were able to fight their way back to 10th place. This also gave them important points for the world championship. The team is now in 5th place overall, one point behind the Ducati factory team.

Florian Alt's next race is in Most/Czech Republic on 24 and 25 June as part of the IDM. The next race in the EWC World Endurance Championship is on 08.08. in Suzuka/Japan.

Welcome to the team!

Leon Binder has been supporting us as an electronics developer since 15.06.2023. We welcome him warmly and wish him a good start with us!

BMW RR CUP at Nürburgring

The brehmer racing team participated in a BMW S1000 RR Cup at the Nürburgring after a long break. Such appointments are important for the team to personally experience the tough demands on man and machine, but also the contact to the "motorbike racing scene" is very important. Our Engineering Director Moritz Schmidt also came to the Nürburgring and gathered important impressions. At the final race on Sunday, there was a trophy for the best guest starter.

Ville Valtonen at the IRRC/Schleiz race

Our Finnish partner, with its rider Ville Valtonen, was a guest starter at the IRRC race in Schleiz. Although Ville hardly knows the track, he was able to fight for the podium in both races and reached an excellent 3rd place both times. (Race results) On the first weekend in July, Ville will make another guest start in his home town Imatra.

Florian Alt wins the IDM at Oschersleben

The start of the season was already excellent for Florian Alt and the Honda Holzhauer Racing Team at the Sachsenring, but it got even better in Oschersleben: pole position in practice, victory in race 1 and victory in race 2! In excellent weather conditions, "the man from Nümbrecht with the iron nerves" again achieved top results, although the international competition did not let up and Florian crossed the finish line as the winner by a few fractions of a second in the end.

Trainees passed their final exams

Today we can congratulate twice! Our trainees Angelika and Daniel have successfully passed their final exams. Angelika is now a qualified industrial clerk and Daniel a qualified specialist for warehouse logistics. We are happy and very proud of the successful and very good training.

Angelika will work at brehmergroup after her training and will take on various tasks in the area of order processing/internal sales. Unfortunately, we cannot offer Daniel a job and wish him all the best for his future career.

VDL visits brehmergroup again

During today's visit to VDL, the production of rocker switches in a wide range of variants was inspected and audited. The individual departments were audited, starting with logistics (represented by Logistics Manager Waldemar Konrad), through order processing (represented by Sales Manager Stephan Bitzer) to production (represented by Production Manager Florian Häniche). Project manager Tim Mertin accompanied the customer through the day accordingly. The day was concluded with a corresponding process release by VDL and was thus a complete success. We look forward to future cooperation with the renowned Dutch bus manufacturer. (Photo from left to right: Craig Workman, Peter Kuppens, Pim van der Zalm, Dennis Blättermann, Simon Maas, Marco Klein, Moritz Schmidt, Tim Mertin)

Project meeting: watchER

A milestone meeting of all project partners took place today on the premises of brehmergroup for the watchER project. Within the framework of the project, a low-maintenance and cyber-physical logistics system is to be developed in cooperation with the partners: WALTHER Faltsysteme GmbH, MALORG GmbH and the University of Mannheim for seamless real-time monitoring and improvement of process and resource efficiency. Based on the improvements, energy savings and, downstream, a corresponding climate protection effect will be achieved. Dr. Michael Schrempp was able to see the progress of the project for himself on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The project meeting was a complete success.

Kick-off of the IDM (International German Motorcycle Championship)

The new season got off to an almost perfect start for Florian Alt at the Sachsenring. It was only shortly before the start of the season that the switch from Flo66 to HONDA and the tradition-rich Holzhauer Racing Team Motorsport ( became apparent. Formula 1 star Michael Schumacher already drove a Honda for Holzhauer Racing.

Flo drove a record lap in the practice session to reach pole position. With this time, he would have been well placed even in the "top class" / Moto GP. On Saturday Flo controlled his race behind the multiple champion Ilya Mikhalchik and secured 2nd place.

On Sunday then the 2nd race and Flo made the sensation perfect, with a never threatened, sovereign victory. The first victory for Honda and the Holzhauer Racing Team after 12 years in the IDM.
Jens Holzhauer (on the left photo) can hardly believe it. And we can get used to the picture with Flo66 at the top of the podium.

Die brehmergroup at Nacht der Technik

The 1st Oberberg "Nacht der Technik" took place on 5 May 2023. Numerous people from Oberberg visited a wide variety of businesses and institutions from 6 p.m. to midnight. Our three time slots were also well attended and we are proud of the entire team for the perfect organisation and smooth running.

We are already looking forward to the next "Nacht der Technik".

The brehmergroup wins the race against IFM!

After a 4-year break, we were finally able to revive the kart race. Our long-standing customer and loyal business partner IFM from Essen was represented by two participants. The brehmergroup was able to participate with four people. After the qualifying, there were two races of 15 minutes each. We thank you for the great fight and are looking forward to return the favour next year.

Kick-off to the World Endurance Championship

The season started on the weekend of 2 April at the traditional circuit in Le Mans, France.

The Honda-Viltais team around Florian Alt and the new World Championship riders Leon Mercado and Steven Odenthaal had a lot planned for the start of the season - and the team delivered. A fourth place is sensational at the start!

Difficult weather conditions (extreme cold), new drivers, new material. Right at the beginning of the race, starting driver Florian "Flo" showed where the hammer hangs and was even able to get ahead of the established factory teams.

After a tough 24-hour race, the team rewarded itself with a 4th place.

Our product in the new BMW M Performance video

In this video you can see our latest product (Door Pin Swarovski), which we sell to BMW M Performance GmbH. Our design manager Eckhard Hauer supervised the project and successfully brought it to the finish line. We are proud and happy that we can already work on the next projects for BMW.

Welcome to the team!

We are pleased to have found an experienced employee for our environmental simulation laboratory in Frank Kerschgens. Frank has been with us since 1 April and can contribute his valuable experience as a "full-blooded electronics engineer" with knowledge of communications engineering, information electronics and aircraft electronics. In connection with his pronounced quality awareness, we will be able to implement the diverse and complex tasks even better.

Campus Day – FHDW

Our two dual students Ben Baldauf (photo left) and Noah Neuser (photo right)  are studying business administration with a focus on automotive industry & sales management at the University of Applied Sciences (FHDW) at the Bergisch Gladbach campus. The brehmergroup is the permanent practical company for the corresponding practical phases of the dual studies of the two. The brehmergroup took part in this year's Campus Day of the FHDW Bergisch Gladbach for the first time as an exhibitor. The aim of the participation was to arouse the interest of further dual students in the study programmes Business Administration and Applied Computer Science in order to actively support them in their training and career entry.

Ben and Noah planned the brehmergroup stand for the Campus Day and were present as contact persons for interested future students. With the help of our sample board with some products from the brehmergroup portfolio, interested parties also had something to touch.

As part of the study module "Project Management", in which a project of their own choice had to be implemented as an examination performance, Ben and Noah decided to implement brehmergroup's participation in the Campus Day as a project. Among other things, this resulted in a feedback interview with our Commercial Director Robin Brehmer.

The participation in Campus Day was successful and resulted in several applications from prospective students, so we are planning to participate again next year.

Trainee project

The starting signal for our "cabin" project was given today. We want to "restore" a used Claas cabin and equip it with our own products. The first meeting for this was held today with all the trainees and Tobias.
All areas, whether commercial or technical, are involved in the project. Everyone is working hard to get the cabin in perfect condition. We wish them every success and look forward to seeing the results.
On the photo from left to right: Alex, Tobias, Elyessa, Edward, Bjarne, Deny, Dieter, Johanna. Angelika and Daniel were absent due to vocational school.

brehmergroup receives visit from Taiwanese partner

Today we received our partner from Taiwan. The new location in Elsenroth was presented and we were able to talk about interesting projects. Our partner is an internationally operating company and we have been working together for several years now. We are looking forward to future cooperation and will visit the company in Taiwan again soon.

Welcome to the team!

Lukas started working for us in the development department on 16 March. After his training, he gained valuable experience in the field of prototype construction. The far-reaching demands of our customers in the field of vehicle, military and machine technology for doubt-free documentation of the products are becoming more and more extensive. In this respect, we are also pleased to have found a new employee in Lukas, who is familiarising himself with this extensive subject matter. Our responsible persons, design manager Eckhard Hauer and employee Katja Quast, have developed a special familiarisation programme for Lukas in order to pass on their knowledge to him.

Welcome to the team!

Daniela Lang has many years of experience in various industrial companies and has proven her organisational talent there. Daniela starts her job on 16.03. in the area of sales / order processing. First of all, we need Daniela's skills in our organising team to ensure that the "Open Day" on 15.06. will be a success. The induction will also follow a specific plan, which our Sales Manager Stephan Bitzer is responsible for.

Welcome to the team!

Christian Zeller has been able to gain a lot of specific experience and he is happy to have found a challenging task in his "old home". Christian started on 15.03. and is getting an insight into all commercial departments as part of his induction plan. The special responsibility of this position, for our sustainable growth course, also creates new potential to permanently improve all commercial processes in connection with the introduction of an expanded merchandise management system. In addition, the direct supervisor Nadine Nusch will be relieved, who can then take over tasks from human resources.

News from Florian Alt and Ville Valtonen

We are pleased to continue the longstanding support of Florian Alt and Ville Valtonen. Florian will change brands in the new year. He is switching to HONDA, the largest motorbike manufacturer in the world, in the EWC (World Endurance Championship) and IDM (International German Championship) categories.

The photo shows the Honda Viltais team for the World Endurance Championship with Florian Alt wearing a brehmergroup cap in the middle.

Ville, called "Valdo", continues to rely on BMW, but has invested in the latest material. Valdo still competes in the ESBK (Spanish Superbike Championship) but also in the IRRC (international road racing class).
We wish both of them good luck and, above all, good health in the new season and that they fulfil their dreams.

10-year anniversary at brehmermechatronics for Moritz Schmidt

Moritz Schmidt has been with us since March 2013. This was duly celebrated today. He started his career with us as a student and we were able to directly assign him the project management for an electromobility project. Already during his studies, we entrusted Moritz with the management of the "Development" department. With ambition, he successfully completed a Master's degree "on the side".
For several years, Moritz has been responsible for the entire technology at brehmermechatronics and has been part of the management since 2019. For exactly 2 years now, Moritz has also been a shareholder of Brehmer GmbH & Co. KG.  In the long term, his patents help to successfully establish us as a supplier of mechatronics. This is a rapid development that Moritz is going through - we wish him health, happiness, peace, overview and further success for the next years with us.
Here's to the next 10 years!

Welcome to the team!

Ralph Schnitzler brings with him profound knowledge of logistics and has strengthened Waldemar Konrad’s logistics department since the beginning of March. The greatly increased workload is now spread over more shoulders. We congratulate Ralph on passing the trainer aptitude test, which he recently took and passed. Now we hope to find the right trainees to further strengthen the department.


brehmerclassics GmbH visits RETRO CLASSICS Stuttgart

For us, the 2023 trade fair year begins with a visit to RETRO CLASSICS in Stuttgart.

As the brehmerclassics sector continues to grow, it is extremely important to get an overview of "the scene". The responsible project managers Denis Knips and Markus Heitmann as well as Business Development Director Craig Workman and Managing Director Robin Brehmer held important talks with customers and suppliers.
For example, the cooperation with our long-standing local Taiwanese partner was intensified and a cooperation agreement was signed. In addition, the customers Mercedes-Benz Classic and Bosch Classic were visited at the fair and current projects were discussed. 
On the following day, the company Porsche Classic was visited at the new location in Asperg, which unfortunately was not represented at the trade fair.

K - like KTM and Karneval

Last week we celebrated "Weiberfastnacht" and the visit of our customer KTM. The visitors were very pleased with the project progress and the new building in Elsenroth. They also enjoyed the local festivities. (please see photo)

Next month we will visit KTM in Mattighofen again and are curious to see what is new in Austria. We are looking forward to another and successful year with KTM.

Our long-standing customer and partner ifm visits the brehmergroup

ifm's exceptionally large product portfolio not only takes into account all relevant standard solutions but also the special requirements of individual industries.
In addition to position and process sensors, the range includes sensors for motion control and safety technology. Furthermore, ifm offers products for industrial image processing and communication as well as identification systems and systems for mobile machines.
We have been supplying ifm with our capacitive switch for more than 10 years now. Today's meeting served to compare notes and to plan and expand the future cooperation. In addition we presented our new location in Nümbrecht/Elsenroth and our services.

The brehmergroup is grateful and proud of this cooperation and we are looking forward to the next years with ifm.

Visit from the Arrow company

Today, our long-time business partner Mr. Van den Akker from Arrow visited us. We discussed many interesting approaches and are excited about the further development of the cooperation.

Visit of BMW special accessories at brehmergroup!

The area of special accessories is very important to BMW. We are very proud that we were able to convince the responsible BMW employees of our competences over two days. We were able to present our locations in Wiehl and Elsenroth with the entire range of services and are proud to have already implemented several projects for BMW special accessories.
Head of design Eckhard Hauer (photo, on the right) and our commercial manager and partner Robin Brehmer (photo, second from right) received the visit from Munich.
We are looking forward to further exciting, varied projects and a continued trusting cooperation.

Welcome to the team!

Jan Luca Ranke started with us in February and went through the project management and order processing departments as part of his induction. Purchasing Manager Valentina Kapski has entrusted Jan Luca with general purchasing tasks. We are pleased that Jan Luca is systematically building up and professionalising our project purchasing.


Cooperation with the TH Köln

The brehmergroup is developing an intelligent rotary controller in cooperation with the TH-Köln, Campus Gummersbach and Omni Elektronik GmbH. In today's project meeting, a jointly developed demonstrator could be put into operation. The project is funded by the "Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie" (Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy) as part of the ZIM funding programme.

In January, we promoted three employees and appointed them heads of department

Stephan Bitzer (photo, left) has been with us for more than five years now and during this time he has developed into an employee we cannot and would not want to do without. Stephan will be "Sales Manager" with immediate effect and is thus responsible for all tasks in the area of order processing and sales. We are delighted that he has accepted this new challenge and will continue to move the team forward with his knowledge and experience. We appreciate his commitment and dedication and hope for a continued good cooperation.
Marco Klein (photo, right) has been with us since 2014 and has been employed as a full-time employee for over five years. Marco will take over the overall management of our quality department, as "Head of Quality", with immediate effect. He has undergone a great deal of professional and personal development, which we fully appreciate. Marco has contributed greatly to the development of our company, for which we thank him very much! 
Valentina Kapski (photo, centre) will take over the management of our purchasing department from 02.01.2023. Valentina has only been with us since 01.07.2022. In this short time, Valentina has done an excellent job in the project management department. Especially the challenge of analysing and evaluating new suppliers with new technologies has been mastered by the business economist with flying colours. Valentina's main task is to ensure the material supply of our production. Please support Valentina in this endeavour.


Congratulations on the bachelor thesis!

Our bachelor student Tim Mertin has completed his bachelor thesis with an excellent overall grade of 1.5. We congratulate him warmly! Tim supervised the introduction of ASPICE certification as part of his bachelor thesis. The bachelor thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr. Siegfried Stumpf (TH-Köln) and Moritz Schmidt (Engineering Director - brehmergroup). (Photo from left to right: Prof. Dr Siegfried Stumpf, Tim Mertin and Moritz Schmidt)
We are pleased that Tim will strengthen our team in project management from 02.01.2023. Within the scope of his work, Tim will continue to take care of the introduction of ASPICE as well as the fully comprehensive development quality and documentation.

Our Christmas party 2022

Finally another Christmas party at our "favourite Greek" Kosta! We all enjoyed the delicious food and cool drinks and were finally able to have some fun together again. Colleagues Marina, Nadine and Valentina had prepared a few surprises, such as a raffle, a guessing game and the trainees' cookie-baking, which had been carried out in advance with construction manager Eckhard. This was a complete success: the taste and design were excellent. The proceeds of the sold biscuits and the estimation game amounting to 570,- Euro will be donated to Aktion Lichtblicke.

We laughed a lot and were also a little sad because Saeed is leaving us at the end of the year.

In the coming week, the inventory still has to be done and then there will be a rest from work for a few days.

Bosch process audit at brehmergroup

This week, Bosch - one of the world's largest automotive suppliers - visited us to conduct an audit of our Classic division. Over 3 days, our processes were turned upside down. 

In addition to the auditor, two product managers also visited us to talk about future projects. 

Especially for our Quality Manager Marco Klein (2nd from right) this is a personal success, after the DAkkS was also completed positively under his leadership. For our Classic Manager Denis Knips (top centre) it was the first audit with his responsible cooperation. Denis Knips is already planning a visit to Bosch at the beginning of next year to conduct further discussions on the projects.

We are looking forward to the evaluation of the audit and to the coming year with hopefully many interesting projects.

Visit from VDL

VDL, one of the leading bus manufacturers in Europe, visited us on 14.12.2022 at our site in Nümbrecht Elsenroth. The gentlemen were convinced that we are the suitable partner for mechatronic solutions. We are looking forward to the beginning of a long-term partnership. Craig Workman (on the left in the photo) and Dennis Blättermann (on the right in the photo) received the visit from the Netherlands.

Start of operations in Elsenroth

Last Friday, we were able to officially start operations at the completed location in Elsenroth. Apart from some minor remaining work, the building was handed over to the brehmergroup by the Sonka architects' office under very difficult conditions. Due to weather conditions, the outdoor facilities could not be completed yet. This will be done in the new year as soon as the weather allows it.

Probationary period successfully completed

There is no end to the good news! Elyesa (on the left photo, left) has completed his probationary period and we are happy that he will continue his training as an electronics technician for devices and systems.

Together with the other trainees (on the right photo), Elyesa is currently preparing a surprise for the upcoming Christmas party as part of a team project. Elesya was the first to receive the "Bosch Manual for Automotive Electrics" today. The plan is to introduce the trainees to the world of interdisciplinary mechatronics through workshops and internships, including at friendly companies and external training centres. Eckhard Hauer, Valentina Kapski and Maik Ackerschott will take charge of this in the coming year.

We have another invention to report

Our friend, Prof. Dr. Klaus Herzog, has come up with an outstanding development of a "tailwheel arrangement for aircraft" and this has now been granted as a patent by the Federal Patent Office on 03.11.2022. It is remarkable that Prof. Dr. Klaus Herzog tested this invention on his own, self-built aircraft. We are already looking forward to the coming year to test the invention. The plan is to make this invention available to our customer "Grob Aircraft". Perhaps other aircraft manufacturers will also be interested.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Herzog wrote to us: "As soon as the weather permits, we can take off for our joint test flight. Lately I have also made many very good landings. One speaks of a good landing when no one is injured. A very good landing is when the aircraft remains whole."

Visit from BMW

BMW Purchasing & Quality put us to the test yesterday and today. The gentlemen were able to get an exact overview of our performance and also trust us with very complex projects. Our identification with BMW products goes a long way. The gentlemen will visit us again next year.

15 years at brehmergroup - congratulations!

Maik Ackerschott (on the left photo, 3 from left) has now been with us for 15 years. We congratulate him on this anniversary! All colleagues came together today to congratulate him as well (centre photo). We are looking forward to more years with Maik, because Maik + electronics = our future.

There was also more news in the electronics department. (On the right photo from left to right:) Saeed (left) leaves or company, Maik (middle) stays and Tobias (right) starts at brehmegroup.

We took Saeed in when he found his way to us the hard way from the Syrian war. He began his journey with us as a temp on 01.07.2017 and then started his training as an "electronics technician for devices and systems", which he successfully completed in early 2022. His journey now continues to a large company in measurement technology. We are pleased that we were able to give a young person a good apprenticeship in a safe and familiar environment and wish Saeed all the best for his future!

On this occasion, we were also able to "officially" introduce Tobias Warnken. Tobias has been with us since 1 December. He is a trained electronics technician and will take Saeed's place. This way Saeed can still train Tobias, as Saeed will leave our company at the end of December.

We are all looking forward to our Christmas party at Kosta: With good food and tasty drinks we will also get to know our new trainees "industrial clerks" for the coming year. Lia Sofie Schiffer and Jonas Neumann have already confirmed their attendance.


2 x reason to celebrate at the brehmergroup

The 1st reason: Our bachelor student Dennis Diel completed his bachelor thesis with an excellent overall grade of 1.6. The bachelor thesis deals with the complex topic of a safety-relevant "by wire" application for motorbikes. It was written under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Felix Hackelöer (TH Köln, Campus Gummersbach, Faculty of Computer Science) and the second examiner Dipl.-Ing. Maik Ackerschott (a top performer in electronics with us for 15 years).

And the second reason: Dennis Diel joins our development team with immediate effect and can seamlessly contribute his acquired knowledge to us and our customers. All the best, Dennis, for your and our future!

The relocation is completed

This week, the last rented brehmermechatronics location was closed. The assembly that was outsourced in Wiehl/Immen was thus relocated to the new site in Elsenroth.
We would like to thank all the helpers from production and the development departments, including: Inge, Claudia, Dagmar as well as Waldemar, Florian H., Alexander U., Saeed, Noah, Marco and Markus.
Now all the rented locations have been handed over and we are all happy about the bright, modern premises. However, there is still a lot of remaining work to be done on the new building.

Today, the first talks have already been held to plan the big opening ceremony on 15.06.2023: the countdown is on.

Visit from Yamaha

Dr Kurita Hirotaka and Keita Watanabe from Yamaha, Japan were our guests today - a very positive visit! Personal thanks go to all the "Elsenrothers" who helped to make the site look very tidy. Alex, Valtentin and Waldemar deserve special mention. 

Move completed. The new business address

Last Friday, the last employees moved out of Wilhelm-Grümer-Weg 22. From now on, our new business address, at our new location in Oberwiehler Straße 55 in Wiehl, is valid. 

Review EICMA 2022

The EICMA, Europe's largest motorbike show, was the final event of our trade fair year. It is one of the world's largest two-wheeler trade fairs, at which, of all things, the top dogs BMW, KTM and Harley-Davidson were absent this year. For us as exhibitors, the fair is not suitable due to its size and lack of clarity. However, as visitors we were able to have some interesting conversations. You can find more information on Motorradonline.

The brehmergroup in the Meiller video

We are pleased that brehmergroup is mentioned as a partner in the video of our customer Meiller. Our scope of delivery to Meiller is a remote control system consisting of a remote control, a charging cradle for the remote control and a highly complex receiver control unit. The system was shown for the first time at Bauma 2018. Now we have already been successfully supplying for several years.

Bauma 2022: A complete success!

Our premiere at BAUMA was a complete success. Business Development Director Craig Workman had found an excellent location for our stand in Hall A2, where almost all the well-known mechatronics suppliers were exhibiting. The stand was beautifully designed (many thanks to Mrs Knetsch) and everything was well organised. We will certainly take part in the next BAUMA, from 07.04. - 13.04.2025 and involve even more employees.
On the photo overview you can see some impressions of our fair days. On the photo below left you can see Stephan Bitzer and Bjärne Heinz in the background, who were always on duty with a smile, even at the end of BAUMA. In the foreground you can see, among others, colleagues from the KTM company. We were very pleased about the visit of the renowned motorbike manufacturer. 

Visit from BMW-Motorrad

A great day for the entire brehmermechatronics team: Europe's largest premium motorbike manufacturer BMW-Motorrad visited us at the end of October. Mr. Johannes Haake has the responsible task of evaluating the performance of our entire team and ensuring that we are able to develop functionally relevant and innovative control elements as the sole supplier for all high-quality BMW motorbikes and to be able to deliver them process-reliably, with 0 errors. We were able to convince Mr Haake with our competence, our passion, our team spirit and our planned approach. This is a milestone in our company history!

We are looking forward to welcoming Mr. Haake back to our company, as the relocation of a product for BMW motorbike to the new location in Elsenroth is imminent. The photo shows from left to right: Moritz Schmidt (Engineering Director), Filippo Pisano (Project Management Manager), Johannes Haake (BMW-Motorrad) and Robin Brehmer (Commercial Director).


News from bauma

We are very pleased about the high-calibre visitors to our stand at bauma. We were visited by the development managers of MAN, Meiller, Linde, and also by representatives of Liebherr, JCB, Fendt, RMMV, to name but a few. Until "half-time" we counted 200 visitors. Today there was a shift change, Aysun Akbaba and Nilüfer Varel (photo above) from KAT are on the stand today.

Our Managing Director Dennis Blättermann (photo below left, on the right) and Quality Manager Claudia Heinz (photo below left, on the left) left yesterday evening, having already arrived on Sunday with Craig Workman (Business Development Director). Stand duty is extremely demanding and exhausting.

Organiser Craig (photo below right, far right) is also still on site in Munich today and is convincing potential customers of our services.

Construction managers and trainees at bauma!

Our construction manager Eckhard and our trainees Deny, Elyessa and Alex had the opportunity to present our stand at bauma. Under Eckhard's leadership, the apprentices managed to prepare the exhibit in time and in best quality for the fair. The "eye-catcher" is a magnet for our customers and as a result we were able to have very good conversations.

We would like to thank all those involved for their dedication and commitment.

New building almost finished

The construction of the new building is on the home stretch. The move of all departments is planned for the end of November. Company Valperz (photo no. 1 and 2) still has to do some paving work and the fencing. The "Classic" department (photo no. 3 and 4) is finished except for the office.

In the warehouse all shelves are now mounted. Soon the first delivery will leave the new hall. (photo no. 5 and 6) 

The floors on the 1st and 2nd floor of the office building are being laid by the Peters company. (photo no. 5) Unfortunately, the glass walls will be put up late due to sick leave.

Our laboratory will have to live with restrictions until mid-November, when it can be put into operation. (photo 6 shows Chris Koch and Valentin Hellhorn).

Opening of bauma 2022

The bauma in Munich opened today and we are exhibiting together with our partners for the first time. The photo shows our trade fair team (from left to right) Craig Workman, Dennis Blättermann, Claudia Heinz, Rikard Rockhammar, Medine Kacar and Serap Karakas. We hope that the fair will be a success and look forward to good discussions! Please feel free to visit us until 30 October in hall A2, stand 514.

9th place at Focus Growth Champion competition

In the annual "Focus Growth Champions Competition", we have once again achieved a top ten position in the category "Automotive (manufacturers, suppliers and trade)". We owe this success to our motivated and committed team, which has now grown to 70 colleagues. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone: you can always be relied on!

Congratulations on your Bachelor's thesis!

Our bachelor student Philipp Höck successfully passed his online colloquium in the field of design today. Dr. Spütz and Prof. Dr. Konrad from the University of Aachen, Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing. Eckhard Hauer and M.Eng Moritz Schmidt from the brehmrgroup were present online to examine Philipp. We warmly congratulate Philipp on his grade of "1.3" and wish him every success in his Master's programme at RWTH Aachen University, which is now about to begin. The online exam was certainly interesting, but face-to-face exams are much more emotional.

Excellent response at the IZB

We are very pleased about the excellent response at the IZB in Wolfsburg! Together with our partners, the brehmergroup presented a broad product portfolio and was pleased to welcome numerous interesting guests on the very first day - including the department heads of VW Classic and the VW "Schalterpapst". This enabled existing contacts to be deepened and new contacts to be made. The visitors also enjoyed a small snack in between and a refreshing "Zunft Kölsch" from Wiehl.

Visit from Triumph Motorcycles + Intermot 2022

On 3 October, we were very pleased to once again welcome top-class employees from Triumph Motorcycles to Wiehl. The gentlemen had come to Wiehl for an important project review. Afterwards we visited the "Mechatronic Manufacturing Center" in Elsenroth, which is currently under construction. On 04.10. we visited the Intermot, which unfortunately turned out to be a bit sobering with only a few customer meetings. However, a visit to the partner Wilbers and a conversation with the fast Nina Prinz (seen on the photo on the far right, with Robin Brehmer) were at least a pleasure. We are already looking forward to the EICMA in November to talk to Ducati representatives there. There we will again meet representatives from Triumph, KTM and BMW. The gentlemen from Triumph then headed home to Hinckley and for us it was back to Wiehl.

Start of the winter season in Valencia

Our long-standing, reliable partner Bike Promotion opened the winter season last weekend in Valencia, Spain. Company founder Thomas Thieme's far-sighted management has ensured that even in the difficult Covid times, enough dates are available in Spain for testing motorbikes and components. Hopefully we will also be there on 28 November when our customer BMW presents the latest models.

Visit us now at the IZB!

We are currently at the IZB in Wolfsburg. Why don't you come and visit us? You will find us in hall 2, stand 2606. We look forward to seeing you!

We are pleased about another patent application!

Since the company was founded in 2003, brehmermechatronics has been constantly investing in new technologies in the field of vehicle mechatronics and has relevant patents and utility models. Our customer Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) has been successfully using our innovative and patented products, such as sealed control units DE 10 2017 104 294, or headlights DE 10 2019 104 999.7, for years.
We are pleased to now be able to report on another milestone, patent DE 10 2021 107 387 A1. Mr. Moritz Schmidt (technical manager, see photo) and his team have developed a solution that protects "interference suppression filters" safely and permanently against environmental influences. We will use this solution in series production at RMMV and thus ensure that the vehicles have an extraordinary durability and are always ready for use.

Update construction progress Elsenroth

The Valperz company came yesterday with 14 people and extensive machinery and tarred the base course up to the entrance - in their usual reliable manner. Although the interior work is behind schedule, the relocation of the laboratory begins today. Unfortunately, lab manager Sebastian Sohn, Chris and Valentin still have to live with considerable restrictions - thank you in advance for your understanding.

The server room and the entire electrical system in the office wing is wired by Schrupp. In total, more than 2,500 m of cable have already been laid in our new building. There is still a lot to do for Alex Schröder and Dieter.   

The assembly area was cleaned yesterday and now has to be prepared for the visit of Triumph from England on October 3rd. (no holiday in England).

At the moment, work in the office wing is in full swing. Floor insulation, underfloor heating pipes as well as drywall, electrical and heating work are currently being carried out. There are still delivery bottlenecks, including for the floor coverings, the fire doors and the heat pump.

We are conducting a daily reconciliation with the responsible architect, Mr. Mark Heimann, and are concentrating 100% on the planned and professional completion of the project, which is elementary for all of us.

Florian Alt: IDM Final in Hockenheim

Florian Alt ended this year's motorbike season of the International German Championship (IDM) with a victory. In extremely difficult conditions - intermittent rain - Florian rode a tactical race. At the start right at the front, he controlled the field and kept Markus Reiterberger, who was already the champion, behind him. The light onset of rain led to extremely difficult conditions.

Florian dropped back a little, waited until the track dried and then took the lead in the last four laps, which he then did not relinquish. Florian thus finished the season as "runner-up". We are very happy for Florian and the entire Wilbers team and are pleased that the partnership will continue.

At the subsequent "get-together", important contacts were made with the ZF Group, among others, and our project manager Julian Hampel and Thomas Brehmer were able to hold promising talks. Robin Brehmer is already looking forward to the new season with Florian Alt and team owner Benny Wilbers (on the left photo in the row).

Congratulations on your beautiful bundle of joy!

We were all very pleased that Victoria visited us with her baby Diana. After completing her training as an industrial clerk with us, Victoria has now become a mother.  Anke had knitted the matching socks, which Diana shows very photogenically in the picture. We wish the little family all the best and would be very happy if Victoria comes back to us sometime.

Successful Excel training

Our trainees successfully participated in the Excel training. Everyone was able to take away something for themselves and the application in practice can take place immediately. We wish the trainees all the best on their way!

On the photo from left to right: Daniel, Edward, Alex, Elyesa. Johanna was unfortunately absent when the certificates of participation were handed over.

Victory for Florian Alt at the 100th Bol d'or

The Motorcycle Endurance World Championship came to an end today at its last 24-hour race in Le Castellet on the southern French coast. The private Yamaha team "Viltais Racing Ipol" around Florian Alt took a historic victory at the 100th "Bol d'or". The race was extremely demanding for the teams and machines and was marked by several retirements. For example, the BMW, Suzuki and YART-Yamaha factory teams did not finish. The Honda factory team had to struggle with difficulties, the Ducati factory team was very unlucky, after leading for more than 20 hours, there was a defect in the last hour of the race. This is what winners look like: (right photo from left to right): Erwan Nigon, Florian Alt, Steven Odenthal.

The joy was even greater that in addition to the victory, as the final result of the World Endurance Championship, 3rd place overall in the World Endurance Championship can be celebrated. We are already looking forward to the coming season - hopefully again with Florian Alt from Nümbrecht.


Building progress in Elsenroth

The new building is making visible progress every day. We plan to move in during the last quarter of this year.

Great success for Ville Valtonen at IMATRA road racing event

Our rider Ville Valtonen finished 6th, 7th and 8th in the IRRC SBK as a guest starter. We congratulate him on this great performance and look forward to future races!

Wilbers-BMW-Racing: Florian Alt is close to the finish line but there's still a chance

What a weekend at the Red Bull Ring. Probably no other team has experienced as many ups and downs this season as the Wilbers Racing Team. After the initial shock experience in the free practice of the IDM Superbike, Florian Alt on the BMW M 1000 RR again provided a brilliant performance in Styria.

First of all, technology boss Burkhard Stember threw his hands over his head. After just half a lap, Florian Alt's first free practice session ended due to a short circuit in the wiring. There really can't be that much bad luck. "Last year we didn't have a single failure," said Burkhard Stember and added aptly: "Next time I'll give Flo the laptop so he can read the error right away on the track." The only positive thing was that the failure happened this time in free practice and not in the race. That gave reason for hope.

When Florian Alt returned from the first qualifying, something had happened that was second to none. Flo not only snagged pole position, but on his fastest lap was just under four seconds slower than Enea Bastianini in MotoGP qualifying in August on the factory Ducati. Florian Alt's lap time of 1:32.505 min was a lonely top on the course, which, like the MotoGP, included the new Münzer chicane. The extensive conversion has changed the track layout and, for safety reasons, slows down the explosive steep section of the high-speed track.

All Florian Alt had to do now was to beat four-time champion Markus Reiterberger. That's the only goal the team is still pursuing. After the double victory in the Alpine Republic a year ago, it didn't seem impossible, but this time Flo lacked that famous little bit of luck in both runs. In the first race of the day, he couldn't get past Argentinian Leandro Mercado for a long time. When he finally led, he couldn't drive Reiterberger away. Shortly before crossing the finish line, the Bavarian made a borderline but successful attack. Flo crossed the finish line four tenths of a second behind. Four tenths of a second after 14 laps - that's a blink of an eye.

In heat two, there wasn't a perfect line for Flo to shoot forward from the reverse grid from eighth place. But he fought his way up to Reiterberger bit by bit. In between, he made short work of Mercado. The gap to Reiterberger kept getting smaller. One lap more, then the race to catch up would probably have been enough to win. Theoretically there would have been two more laps on the clock, but because of the steep sections and the new chicane it was decided at the last IDM event in Assen to shorten the distance due to possible fuel problems. "Unfortunately, that's the way it is now," Florian Alt shrugged his shoulders, "but I set a lap record in practice and also proved that only our team is able to beat Markus Reiterberger. The season isn't over yet.” At the end of September, the big IDM final will take place in Hockenheim. (Source: Wilbers-BMW-Eacing, photos: Dino Eisele)

We welcome a new colleague

We are happy to announce that Lukas Becker will join us as a full-time employee in the purchasing department. He was able to settle into the department very well in the first few days and is now supporting the team with full commitment. The whole team welcomes him warmly and is happy that he is with us!

We welcome our apprentice

On 01.08.2022 Johanna started her training as an industrial clerk with us, which we already mentioned last month. She has now successfully completed her first month and the entire purchasing team is very satisfied. In the course of her training, she will pass through all of our commercial departments. We wish her every success for the exciting years here with us!


Impressions from the summer festival

Dear colleagues, it's great that you all came in such large numbers! It was a wonderful day, which we have captured not only in pictures but also in a video.

Wilbers-BMW-Racing: The great Florian-Alt-Show and the following disaster at the TT Circuit in Assen

Shouts of joy after the first round of the IDM Superbike at the TT Circuit Assen were replaced by sheer horror. Florian Alt's podium finish was followed by the third technical failure of the season. The plan to defeat the now four-time champion Markus Reiterberger once again remains.

As the fourth engine was already in use in the BMW M 1000 RR at Assen, Florian Alt was already penalised from the outset. As only three engines are compulsory in the technical regulations, the 26-year-old was automatically placed at the back of the grid, even though he had finished qualifying with the second-fastest time.

The view was unfamiliar, but Alt was still able to take something positive from it. "We have received new electronics from BMW, which we are currently testing. And it is, after all, a challenge to have to attack from the very back. I can't say I'm not up for it." The goal was clearly a podium finish.

Theoretically, of course, there was the chance to completely roll up the field of riders from behind, but does that work in practice? Florian Alt proved all doubters wrong. The battle between the Superbike World Championship stars was raging at the front, but it was Florian Alt who really put on a show. After just half a lap, he had already reached the middle of the field. Now he had to keep on the ball, because the initial bunch began to pull apart. Alt crawled his way further towards the top, tenth by tenth. No one else had driven as many laps in the second qualifying session as he had, and that was now paying off. The driver from Nümbrecht worked like a machine. Fast, precise, efficient. After 15 laps and a total of 68.325 kilometers, Florian Alt crossed the finish line in third place. He had made it! That it was really enough in the end was a feat of strength. "Assen has always been our Achilles' heel, we have worked enormously on it," said Florian Alt, "and now we also have the new engine in use. In the last few races I had no chance against Markus Reiterberger. And the plan is to beat Reiti again this year."

With third place, Florian Alt simultaneously slowed down the Bavarian once again on his way to a fourth title in the premier class. Only Florian Alt in second place overall was still able to delay the Bavarian's triumph.
He himself had already lost it at the start of the season with the fatal technical failure.

To crown the day another trophy should enrich the Wilbers box in Assen. Due to the reverse grid, in which the fastest riders of the first race start from the third row of the grid, the way from the back to the competition was not that far for Alt this time. He fought like a lion, a repeat of the first race was in sight - until he parked in the gravel on the fifth lap, completely stunned. Once again, a technical defect had knocked him out of his race to catch up and his ambitions. Alt had to watch Markus Reiterberger take the next victory, which also secured him the next title.

Those who fall deep can also get up again and come back even stronger. "We're incredibly sorry for Flo that the race weekend ended like this," says team boss Benny Wilbers about the situation. "The whole team had imagined it differently after the great first race. It is of course bitter that it has hit us again. Nevertheless, we're not giving up and want another win."  On the first week of September at the Red Bull Ring in Austria comes the next chance. (Source: Wilbers-BMW-Racing, photos: Crumbdesign)

Perfect teamwork during the move

Our logisticians have  emptied the warehouse in Marienhagen. Our 'Classicers' have started moving the Classic area from Brächen to Elsenroth. This was perfect teamwork - thanks to Dennis, Markus and Florian. We worked up quite a sweat and unfortunately also put a few dents on the rental Sprinter. 

Afterwards we had a delicious lunch.

Craig also joined us and helped to bring everyone to Elsenroth. There the whole workshop is now waiting to be finished. Today the tiles were laid in the sanitary area and the electrics were wired. Soon the whole workshop can be set up and we are looking forward to putting it into operation.

News from the Formula Student

At the Formula Student in Austria, we were able to achieve 15th place out of 24 participants in the "combustion engine" category. This is a good achievement for our small team. Despite some technical problems, it was really exciting to get everything right. In the end, however, we were able to participate in every discipline and the students and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Herzog from the Technical University of Central Hesse were able to go home very satisfied.

10-year company anniversary for Werner Bubenzer

Werner Bubenzer celebrated his 10th anniversary with the company on 1 August. Werner is responsible for financial planning and controlling and in this function is indispensable in the sustainable development of the brehmergroup. All members of the management continue to look forward to the reliability, competence and integrity in working with Werner.

A great day

On 01.08.2022, our apprentices started their professional lives: Johanna Mahn and Edward Barabas as industrial clerks, Elyesa Kazanc as an electronics technician and Alexander Usik as a product designer. Our trainer Valentina Kapski surprised each apprentice with a "Schultüte" (school cone), Eckhard Hauer brought the training guidelines and Anke Brehmer brought delicious chocolate kisses (with the company logo).

There was a lot of laughter during the joint presentation and then "the new ones" went to work with their mentors Angelika Karpenko, Saeed al Hallak and Deny El Achar. The best news at the end of the day: The first day at work was fun!


Wilbers-BMW-Racing: Two podium finishes in front of over 30,000 spectators at the Schleizer Dreieck

Where everything is different, where square grass grids are used instead of the kerbs and connect the paddock directly to the green areas of the area, Florian Alt once again proved his impressive fighting strength last weekend and was able to celebrate. The 25-year-old Wilbers-BMW-Racing rider finished on the podium in the IDM Superbike and has indicated that there will soon be more than second places in it.

Florian Alt had been faster than ever on the natural race track in the heart of Thuringia in training and was almost frightened by it himself. "If someone had told me before the weekend that I could achieve 1:23 min times, I wouldn't have believed it and laughed about it. I thought such times were not possible." The North Rhine-Westphalian duelled with championship leader Markus Reiterberger with the knife between his teeth, but had to admit defeat with the touch of 0.144 seconds in qualifying. That was impressive. On Friday, the Wilbers squad had sweated profusely for a short time, but not because the sun was burning mercilessly over the Schleizer Dreieck, but because the locking screw of a shift shaft had loosened during free practice and as a result the shift fork could not be brought into position in fifth and sixth gear.

But as always, everything was in perfect order for the start of the race on Sunday. But what was that? Alt came back from the first lap in the lead, but it seemed as if he was fighting with Reiterberger so skintight as if the two already had the last 100 meters in sight. Yet there were still 17 laps to go. When later Reiterberger led, Alt did not allow a solo escape of the Bavarian. He stayed on and followed him into the finish in second place.

According to the rules of the reverse grid, that meant eighth place on the grid for the second race. More quickly than usual, Alt worked his way through the field to catch Reiterberger, who noted, "Normally Flo doesn't get through as fast as I do, but when I turned around he was already on my butt." During the lunch break, the team had made some minor changes to the BMW M 1000 RR, which paid off. Alt rode half a second faster in the first twelve laps than in the first race and the gap to Reiterberger had also been halved at the finish in contrast to the first race. "We worked on the launch control, that's why it worked so well with the launch," says Alt, "that was really fun. And you could see quite clearly that I was definitely stronger than Markus in the corner entry and the apex."

Like Alt, engineering boss Burkhard Stember is confident that Wilbers-BMW will win another race this year. According to Stember, the development of the in-house suspension fork is making progress every weekend. "We have a lot more work with the new model than with the old one, for which we had all the data. But we're getting better and better." The race continues at Assen in the Netherlands from August 12 to 14, 2022.

Florian Alt: A podium place and the next bad luck

Sometimes life plays crazy. After an excellent second place in the first Superbike race at the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM) in Most, Czech Republic, Florian Alt wanted to get more in the second race. But this did not happen. The 26-year-old rider from the Wilbers-BMW-Racing team rather did damage control and saved a fourth place at the finish. Small consolation: Despite the debacle in the second race, "Flo" moved up one place in the overall standings and is now second. In the heat of Most, Florian Alt still said ...

 Sometimes life plays crazy. After an excellent second place in the first Superbike race at the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM) in Most, Czech Republic, Florian Alt wanted to get more in the second race. But this did not happen. The 26-year-old rider from the Wilbers-BMW-Racing team rather did damage control and saved a fourth place at the finish. Small consolation: Despite the debacle in the second race, "Flo" moved up one place in the overall standings and is now second.

In the heat of Most, Florian Alt still said after qualifying, in which he secured a place on the front row of the grid: "The tyres will be decisive." At that time, he could not have known how true this statement would be for him of all people.

In the first race, the BMW M 1000 RR rider was extremely spirited and even left the riders from the Superbike World Championship behind. Leon Haslam, the 2010 Superbike World Championship runner-up, made his debut in the German elite class. And with Leandro Mercado, a Superstock European Champion and current World SBK participant had arrived in Most. Alt didn't care about the prominent names, but second place behind his permanent rival Markus Reiterberger was written on the paper after the first race.

That was something to build on. But bad luck struck Florian Alt again. In the second run it was obvious that not everything was going well for the Wilbers pilot. His elbow did not touch the ground when he was in an inclined position and, unlike usual, he did not move forward as usual. The front wheel was to blame, as it turned out afterwards. The tyre did not sit completely in the rim bed, it was a matter of millimetres!

Many riders would probably have parked the bike in the pits during the race because of the extreme chattering - but Florian Alt didn't. He gritted his teeth, finished fourth and said: "Actually, I am happy to have arrived at all. But why is this happening to me of all people?

When the rim was new, there was no visible defect. It was only when the tyre was stressed that the defect became visible and noticeable. The left-hand bends in Most must have been pure horror for Alt, who nevertheless took up the cudgels for the tyre manufacturer: "What happened in the second race is something we have never experienced before. The material is now being analysed from several sides." Nevertheless, the fight for the championship is not over for Alt, even if he says of double winner Markus Reiterberger that he was "really strong" at the Most weekend. The next destination on the agenda is the Schleizer Dreieck from 22 to 24 July. That's where the reckoning will take place. Will we see you there?

Congratulations on the final exam

Our trainee Victoria has successfully passed the written and oral final examination for industrial clerk. We congratulate her and wish her all the best for the future!

6th place for Florian Alt at Spa-Francorchamps

As reported in the April news, Florian is active in the World Endurance Championship. For the first time in over 20 years, a 24-hour race was held on the extremely demanding "hill and dale" track in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, on the first weekend in June. Florian's opponent in the IDM, Markus Reiterberger and the BMW motorbike factory team celebrated a much acclaimed victory (The press reported).

The extremely difficult race was marked by ups and downs for Florian and his team, both during the day and at night. And yet, in the end, an excellent 6th place came out of it. On 07 August in Suzuka / Japan the next round of the world championship.

Updates from Florian Alt

We failed to report on Florian Alt's race in the International German Championship (IDM) from the Lausitzring on 08 May. In the two races that were started, Florian unfortunately did not finish. In the 1st race, the engine of his BMW M1000 RR failed after a few laps. Florian was not even able to start the 2nd race2 because the electronics on his BMW refused to work.

However, the races on 20.05. in Oschersleben were all the more pleasing. In race 1, Florian won with a first-class manoeuvre on the last lap, ahead of Markus Reiterberger, who dominated the championship, and thus took his first victory this year. Florian then successfully completed Race 2 in 2nd place. The Lausitz weekend was forgotten.

The next races of the IDM Championship will take place on 26.06. in Most, Czech Republic. We are looking forward to exciting races again!

In a few days, we will be moving into the entire 2nd floor of the new building opposite. Co-partner Moritz Schmidt and IT manager Alexander Schröder spoke to Oberberg-aktuell about this.

Excerpt: "The offices will house the development centre and the administration. The move is scheduled to take place in mid-March. The rooms opposite will be given up, and production, the laboratory and the warehouse will be moved to the new location in Nümbrecht-Elsenroth. Construction there will be completed in the second half of the year. However, with the relocation of the offices to Oberwiehler Straße, the headquarters of the specialist for mechatronics development will remain in Wiehl. The company is growing: in 2012, there were twelve employees, and now there are more than 70, says Schmidt. (Photo: Oberberg aktuell)

On the other floors there is a medical care centre (basement), a familiy doctor (ground floor), a fabric shop (ground floor), a senior citizens' flat (1st floor) and three spacious flats (3rd floor). 

Alex Schröder has been with brehmermechatronics for 15 years

Christopher Koch has passed his bachelor thesis with 1.3 (A)

We are pleased today that Christopher (Chris) Koch has passed his bachelor's thesis with a grade of 1.3! Chris has been with brehmermechatronics since 2014. He proved himself as a skilled worker in the electronics development department and began studying electrical engineering in 2017, specialising in electronics. During his studies, Chris was always able to gain experience with us as a working student. The topic of his thesis was 'hands on detection', which means the presence detection of the hands on a motorbike handle or the joystick to control a working machine. Now Chris, as a bachelor of electronics, can put his accumulated knowledge directly into practice. Well-known motorbike manufacturers now want to put 'Chris know-how' to use in their motorbikes. We are pleased that Chris is staying with us and that his knowledge is helping to secure jobs at brehmermechatronics. We wish Chris all the best! (Photo: Second examiner Dipl.-Ing. Dennis Blättermann (left), Christoper Koch (centre) and Prof. Dr. Ing. Christian Wolf (right) of TH Köln)

Florian Alt: Season 2022 starts with successful tests

Florian Alt and the Wilbers-BMW-Racing Team set off for Spain in January 2022 to further develop and fine-tune a new R46RR racing fork developed by Wilbers for the IDM, EWC and World SBK. First destination was Almeria, from there they went to Cartagena and back to Almeria to fine-tune the setting again. With best results, they then went on to their winter quarters in Valencia. On the fast track of Valencia it quickly became obvious that the whole Wilbers team together with Gilles and ZF did a really good job.?? After three weeks of testing, the team will go back to Aragon and Valencia in March to check everything again at higher temperatures.

Successful completion of training

Our Saeed successfully completed his training as an "Electronics technician for devices and systems" this January. We congratulate him and are happy that he will stay with us.

News about our sponsorships in Bangladesh

Our sponsored child Matio (photo on the left) is now 18 years old and the support through our sponsorship has enabled her to grow up healthy and self-confident. We are very happy about that! But of course we are also sad that the project in her village Bhaluka is now finished and we have to say goodbye. Now we would like to support little Imran (photo right) from Thakuragon (Bangladesh). He is 7 years old, has two sisters and likes to play football. The small income of his family is often not even enough to provide him with the most basic necessities. We hope that our support will also help him to grow up healthily. And of course we wish Matio all the best for the rest of her life!

Wilbers-BMW-Racing: Alt is the winner in the thriller for the runner-up title

The finale of the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM) at the Hockenheimring was not for the faint of heart. Florian Alt gave the Wilbers-BMW team the runner-up title in the premier class at the end of the season. A single point played the main role in the end. After the messed-up start to the season in Oschersleben and Alt's absence in Most due to a World Endurance Championship commitment, nobody would have dreamed that he would even end up fighting for the runner-up title in the IDM Superbike 1000. But the races at the Red Bull Ring had changed everything. After his double victory in Styria, Alt had moved up from tenth to third place in the standings within a few hours - and suddenly had a realistic chance ...

"Flo" made the secret hopes come true, but provided a huge thrill beforehand. On the BMW M 1000 RR, he first burned the fastest lap into the asphalt in qualifying. That meant pole position for the 25-year-old from Engelskirchen. He also came back from the first race lap in the lead, before the race had to be stopped due to a mass crash caused by a trace of oil.

But the races at the Red Bull Ring had changed everything. After his double victory in Styria, Alt had moved up from tenth to third place in the standings within a few hours - and suddenly had a realistic chance of actually finishing runner-up in the IDM Superbike 1000 at the Hockenheim finale.

"Flo" made the secret hopes come true, but provided a huge thrill beforehand. On the BMW M 1000 RR, he first burned the fastest lap into the asphalt in qualifying. That meant pole position for the 25-year-old from Engelskirchen. He also came back from the first race lap in the lead, before the race had to be stopped due to a mass crash caused by a trace of oil.

After the track was cleaned and the race restarted, the field took a more cautious approach, if only because of the binder on the track. Only Ilya Mikhalchik, who was confirmed as the champion, sprinted across the spot completely painlessly before crashing on the next lap, Alt just managing to avoid him and fortunately only touching the Ukrainian's bike. Alt himself later successfully averted a highsider. He remained on his bike, was classified as second in the race and was once again a step closer to the runner-up title.

In the second heat, the decision had to be made. Three men were in contention for the runner-up title: Florian Alt, Luca Grünwald and Vladimir Leonov. It was a very tight affair. In the second race, Alt had to start from the eighth position on the third row of the grid in accordance with the rules of the reverse grid. This was not as fast as last time at the Red Bull Ring. In the Wilbers box the emotions went crazy. When Leonov drove at the top, he already looked like the safe runner-up. Only seconds later, however, it could have been Grünwald. Alt had to slog and told afterwards: "I wasn't sure what was going on. I just knew that I had to finish fourth." And Alt really managed it, "but I would have liked not to make it so exciting." A single point ultimately decided victory and defeat. The BMW rider from North Rhine-Westphalia goes down in history as IDM Superbike 1000 runner-up with 145 championship points ahead of brand colleague Luca Grünwald (144 points).

All's well that ends well. The world around team boss Benny Wilbers is in order. There were celebrations and team junior Marco Fetz was also there. The 21-year-old had broken his thigh in Assen, but didn't want to miss the Hockenheim finale despite using a walking aid. Being there is everything and it really paid off. Fetz took his place as co-commentator next to the track announcer.

New climate test chamber expands capacities of our environmental simulation laboratory

We - in particular our laboratory manager Sebastian Sohn and his team - are pleased to expand our capacities in the field of environmental simulation with a high-quality, new climate chamber. It has a test chamber capacity of 190 litres, a rate of change of 7.5/8.0 K/min and a temperature range from -70 to +180°C. A special feature are two feed-throughs with glove inserts in the door. This allows functional tests of operating elements to be carried out under temperature. We are now looking forward to customer enquiries in order to be able to offer an even better service.

Status of the new building plans

The construction progress of the new building in Oberwiehl is on schedule. At the moment, heating pipes and electrics are being laid. Completion of the building is planned for April 2022. Afterwards, our "Development" and "Project Management" departments can move to the 2nd floor.

Due to weather conditions, we were only able to set up the construction site in Elsenroth and start excavating last week. Therefore, we are more than a month behind our actual schedule. Civil engineering contractor Vitali Wolf from Oberwiehl excavated, laid drainage, gravelled and compacted with heavy equipment within one and a half weeks. This week, the foundations are to be grouted, followed by the floor slab. The erection of the steel hall will begin at the end of September. Construction of the office wing will then begin in spring 2022. If everything goes according to schedule, we can move in in the 4th quarter of next year. The warehouses in Marienhagen and Brächen as well as the assembly in Immen will then be closed and moved to Elsenroth.

BMW M 635 CSI - development of ABS sensors

More than 2 years ago, we realised that the ABS sensors on our test vehicle were no longer working properly. Our project manager Mr. Thore Simon analyzed the safety-critical components with the support of our laboratory manager Mr. Sebastian Sohn. It became apparent that the reverse engineering would be a major mechatronic challenge. The extreme environmental conditions of heat, thermal shock, vibrations, salt water, etc. had to be specified precisely, simulated and tested on the initial samples and in the vehicle. Tegetech Power supported us during the test. Mr. Wolfgang Tegethoff (company founder and owner) has an incredible knowledge of all BMW M models. Customers from all over Europe can confirm this. During the test phase, we could count on his extremely competent and reliable support. We can recommend Mr. Tegethoff and his staff to all BMW M enthusiasts.


New convertible top by RM-Verdeckservice

After we successfully developed the electric drives for the BMW E 30 and E 36, our BMW E 30, 3.20 should get a new convertible top.

Mr. Reiner Weingärtner and partner Maximilian Senke professionally assembled the new top with absolute meticulousness and the highest level of competence. After the two of them gave a lot of valuable advice on care and maintenance, we had a delicious espresso. They offered top and service for an absolutely fair price. We can absolutely recommend RM (Reiner & Maximilian).

Good contacts and difficult weather conditions

Jerez de la Frontera in difficult weather conditions. Unfortunately, the replacement bike S 1000 RR was irreparably damaged in the event of a supposed slide on rainy slopes.

uFrame – Universal functional safety remote access machine for electronic devices

The use of smart devices for the planning and control of systems in the commercial vehicle, construction machinery and automation industries is expanding rapidly. Currently, special industrial tablets are used for this purpose, as only these can be integrated into the safety concept of the machine in order to comply with the requirements of the DIN EN ISO 13849 standard.

Conventional consumer smart devices, with which the user would be more familiar, do not fulfill these requirements. brehmermechatronics is therefore currently developing an extension for consumer smart devices in the "SDeFS" project, which supplements the important safety functions for controlling machines. For details, see Industry 4.0 and our SDeFS Video.

Height sensor was subjected to endurance test in Almeria

The brehmermechatronics racing team returned on Wednesday from 4-day test drives on the racetrack 'Almeria' where the height sensor was testet. The height sensor has been developed by brehmermechatronics and also has been improved recently. The tests should prove that the height sensor, now reproducibly delivers the same results as a conventional displacement transducer. For the tests, the prototype of the height sensor was mounted on the right fork leg (see photo: on the clamp foot and on the standpipe). For the first time, the gluing could be tested as a simplified method of assembly.

All data was collected by a data logger and now needs to be evaluated and analyzed by the brehmermechatronics engineers. Even in rough racing (1st place in the Superbike class), the system worked flawlessly. Moto GP winner Simon Crafar was convinced and may already be able to contact potential customers at one of the next events.

Successful on-road test in Almeria

Because the on-road tests of the height sensor could not be carried out as planned at the Nürburgring in September (due to problems with the configuration of the prototypes) they could be successfully rescheduled in the past week. In the Spanish city of Almeria the conditions were excellent  – in a 2-day, race-like test operation, the now optimized sensor worked perfectly. The final race unfortunately had to be canceled because of various crashes. At this point, Robin (175) was in an excellent 4th place. Now all data must be evaluated. There is still another optimization loop in the planning stages. Presumably another model which is optimized for series production wil be tested at the end of January.

Sunday 25 September 2017, Nürburgring:

With lovely weather, the brehmermechatronics racing team secured a sensational 7th place at the final race of the RLC Cup. (Results RL-Cup.pdf). Even in training, a good 14th starting position was secured. During the race, starting pilot Robin catapulted to 4th place with a stellar Le Mans start. In round 2, he even secured 3rd place and was amongst the fastest at that point. He improved his personal best time by an unbelievable 2 seconds. Unfortunately, the race was cancelled due to an accident, which luckily ended without a major incident. Robin managed the restart similarly well. The subsequent switchouts between Bernhard, Bernd, and Robin were executed seamlessly. During the entire race, there were no technical issues or mishaps of any kind. The team was rewarded with 7th place thanks to the consistently fast driving laps. Up to that point, 9th place was the best result achieved. At the awards presentation, they were still able to celebrate 10th place overall for the end of season evaluation. (Score_RL-Cup.pdf) This was unexpected because of previous races with 2 accidents and cancellations. The outstanding placement of our team did suffer due to the fact that the prototype for the altitude sensor was not operational. Bernd was driving the BMW HP 4 with the prototype of the altitude sensor and data logger. However, no comparative data could be recorded because the reference sensor failed due to a material error. Long distance racing is extremely demanding not only for the drivers and the entire team, but also for the equipment. These raw conditions are the ideal basis to advance the systematic series development of the altitude sensor. The experiences must absolutely be taken into consideration for future development. The prototype will most likely be tried out at the test drives in Almeria in December. The name of the game now is to continue planning - including for the new season in 2018.


2nd TECH-DAY September 21

At the 2nd brehmermechatronics TECH-DAY, you will again find an interesting and informative program - this time around the topic »Human Machine Interface«. Communication and networking will not be missed on this day. If you would like to participate, you still have the opportunity to register until August 31st. Please use our contact form or call us at +49 2262 72717-0.

Research project has gained momentum

The first prototype of an intelligent seating system was presented in cooperation with TH Cologne, Institute for Product Development and Design Engineering. This system is able to recognize the user's sitting position. Furthermore the seat supports the driver by an active adaptation to his anatomy and helps to prevent postural damage. The adaption of the seat system uses an actuator system based on special shape memory alloys. The developed seat system has brought the future vision of autonomous driving a little closer to reality. Refering to the driver's sitting position, the vehicle and its assistance systems can intervene in a situation-specific and targeted manner.

bremermechatronics continues to expand.

We are pleased to welcome the following new employees:
• Mr. Saeed Alhallak starts his internship with us to improve his knowledge of German. Saeed comes from Syria. We hope he likes it with us, so he can start an apprenticeship as a mechatronics engineer soon.

• Mr. Kevin Krüger has been successfully trained as a mechatronics engineer at a well-known company in Whiel. We are happy that Kevin is now strengthening our development department.

• From Monday, Mr. Simon Wischott will strengthen our commercial department.

8h race Nürburgring RLC – a complete success!

The 8h race is the highlight of this season. The team and the drivers had to give everything and this time they were spared by bad luck. Right from start Bernhard secured a place in the front by a good start and by fast laps. All drivers drove almost flawlessly an the small boxing team worked excellently. After 8h, the team finished 9th, which is the biggest success in the team history so far. Now the next race on 03.09.2017 is already in preparation, where the latest version of the contactless and non-contactable elevation sensor will be applied.


We are looking for a Test Engineer (m/f) validation/test laboratory.  You can find the exact job vacancy here.

The certificate of DEKRA EXAM confirms that all processes at brehmermechatronics meet these particularly high requirements. Specifically, it is about mechatronic battery separation systems, which are used, for example, in tank trucks for gas transports. This is another milestone in our company history, following the successful accreditation of the bremermechatronics laboratory.



Participation in Corporate Challenge

brehmermechatronics has successfully participated in the Corporate Challenge on 9th June 2017 not least because the weather was kind to us. Within our team Robin Brehmer finished 1st place. Johannes Kirsch und Christopher Koch finished 2nd and 3rd place.

Das 6-Stunden-Langstreckenrennen Rennen im Rahmen des RLC, stand für BRT unter keinem guten Stern.

Bei typischem Eifelwetter kam es am Sonntag, dem 25.06.2017 schon während der Startphase zu starkem Regen. Trotz Slickreifen startete die Rennleitung das Rennen, mit hohem Risiko für alle Fahrer. Aufgrund des Risikos kam unser Schnellstarter Bernhard nach 2 Runden in die Box und wechselte problemlos auf Thomas’ Motorrad mit spezieller Regenbereifung. Das Team konnte sich vorarbeiten und lag im Vorderfeld auf einem vielversprechenden 12ten Platz. In der 25. Runde, eingangs der Ford Kurve, klappte das Vorderrad der HP4 von Thomas ein, sie überschlug sich und blieb beschädigt liegen. Auch der Prototyp des Gangwahlautomaten wurde hierbei schwer beschädigt – das Rennen war für diesen Moment zu Ende. Fahrer Robin konnte in kürzester Zeit einen Ersatztransponder beschaffen. Zwischenzeitlich trocknete die Strecke so auf, dass Kollege Bernhard das Rennen auf seiner BMW 1000 RR mit Slickbereifung wieder aufnehmen konnte. Allerdings fiel das Team auf die 34. Stelle zurück. Fahrer Robin konnte wie geplant den 3ten Turn antreten und und nur unter starken Schmerzen beenden. Dies war der suboptimalen Sitzposition geschuldet. Da er nicht in der Lage war, weitere "Turns" zu fahren, fuhr "Crashfahrer" Thomas humpelnderweise den nächsten Einsatz auf Robins BMW S 1000 RR. Den Schluss-Turn gestaltete Bernhard souverän mit absoluter persönlicher Bestzeit von 2:09,75, sodass am Ende ein ordentlicher 20. Platz dabei herauskam. Jetzt laufen alle Vorbereitungen für das nächste 8-Stunden-Rennen am 09.07.2017 auf Hochtouren. Wie immer auf dem Nürburgring.

We think "Aktion Mensch" is very supportive and so we are glad to contribute. We also hope that through our participation we will be able to inspire more supporters for this idea.

Successful test drives

brehmermechatronics tested the GWEA prototypes successfully on 20th and 21st of January in Almeria. The new components stood up to the high demands in the "long-runs".
Especially on Saturday, despite of difficult conditions, important insights could be gained. brehmermechatronics had an interesting exchange of ideas with the "BMW Werksteam". (Photo: Robin Brehmer ahead of BMW test driver Thomas Hainthaler)


Donating instead of Gifts – brehmermechatronics makes a donation to ‘Helfende Hände‘

In accordance with the quote from Erich Kästner, "Nothing good happens unless you do it yourself", we would like to forgo the usual sending of Christmas presents to our customers this year and instead donate the equivalent amount to the charity 'Helfende Hände Oberberg', which provides regional support to seriously ill children in need.


The team at brehmermechatronics would like to thank you for your valued partnership and mutual trust. We wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas time of reflection, joy and optimism for the New Year, and happiness, prosperity and good health in 2017.
