Our Company and Its Activities

Our company’s founding stone was laid in 1977 with the establishment of the Engineering Firm Böning. In 1996, it became the Engineering Firm Böning GmbH, which was renamed to Böning Automationstechnologie GmbH & Co. KG in 2003. From the very beginning, the development and manufacture of electronic devices and systems for ship automation was a major focal point of all company activities. 

Originally rooted in commercial shipping, we have also been successfully active in the area of super and mega yachts since 1996. In the meantime, our devices and systems, the majority of which we have developed and manufactured ourselves by the way, are found on more than 13,000 commercial ships and yachts. 

By now, a staff of approximately 100, among them about 20 engineers in the area of development alone, are employed here in Ganderkesee in an area of nearly 4000 m² for office, production, and storage space. 

One of our responses to the economic crisis beginning in 2008 is our continued drive toward globalization. In this context, we point to branch offices in Brazil, Italy, and Croatia, as well as representatives and distribution partners. This allows us to better meet the demands for competent service and short routes, especially by shipping companies and yacht owners.

One of our recipes for success is based on the close cooperation with our customers, resulting in creation of practice-oriented and reliable devices and systems. From this positive synergy grows a steady expansion of our competence. Here, we point out especially the integrated alarm systems which affect practically all areas of ships.

Safety relevant devices and systems are generally type approved according to DNV and other classification societies.

Our company is DIN EN ISO 9001 certified.
