Annual review 2021

Review of the year 2021


As 2021 draws to a close, it will close as the year of the WE spirit for many. For the BUSSE team, friends and family, the WE is reflected in many aspects.

We started January 2021 with a very good level of capacity utilization after a reasonably good "Corona year" in 2020. In February, we had to announce the death of Prof. Rido Busse, our company founder. - A great networker and philanthropist has passed away. One of his guiding principles is lived out every day in our projects: to meet the highest standards in order to help shape the product and working world of tomorrow and beyond in a spirit of partnership.

In May and June, our team was vaccinated by the company doctor (Dr. Schlaupitz) and boostered in December. The implementation of our hygiene and safety plan has become a matter of course. Regular rapid tests are standard.

We have purchased a filament printer so that we can implement rapid prototypes even faster. In July 2021, we expanded our production storage space with a 450 m² hall on our company premises. This created space for another large 5-axis milling machine. In addition, the workshop team has grown by 2 heads.

We are further expanding our climate neutrality by commissioning a photovoltaic system and wallboxes for guests and employees.

October was our month of horror: a fire in a CNC milling machine in the workshop caused by a rodent was quickly contained and worse was prevented thanks to the alarm system, our operational rescue chain and the prudent actions of the fire department.

We also want to express our thanks in 2021 through our social commitment. - Our donations went to: the Unterelchingen fire department, Aktion Deutschland Hilft and the Neu-Ulm - Helfen mit Herz foundation.

In 2022, 62 BUSSE team members are looking forward to continuing challenging, exciting and active projects.

We wish all our friends, employees, partners and families a Merry Christmas, a healthy and fulfilling 2022 and look forward to helping shape the product and working world of the day after tomorrow on your behalf again from 10.01.2022.

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
