Honour for modern technology in animal husbandry

Dipl.-Ing. Egon Schumacher receives Max-Eyth-Gedenkmünze

(Düsseldorf / Hanover, 14.11.2022) At the International Poultry Event, which took place on the eve of EuroTier on 14 November 2022 in the Convention Center (CC) of Messe Hannover, Dipl.-Ing. Egon Schumacher from Barnstorf, Diepholz district, was honoured with the Max Eyth Commemorative Medal of the VDI. Schumacher received the award in honour of his outstanding achievements as company founder, successful managing director and mechanical engineer. With his outstanding expertise, he developed innovative products and successfully introduced them to the agricultural animal husbandry market.

Prof Sandra Rose, member of the board of the VDI Max Eyth Society Agricultural Engineering Division, presented the certificate and medal. In her laudatory speech, she pointed out that Schumacher has not only produced pioneering innovations in animal husbandry technology, but as a successful entrepreneur has also created more than 350 new permanent jobs.

Schumacher, who studied mechanical engineering at Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, was initially employed at Lubing Maschinenfabrik after graduating. Even at a young age, he was considered a perfectionist and at the age of 27 he took over responsibility for the company. At the beginning of the 1970s, Schumacher made a change and focussed on products for agricultural animal husbandry. A decision that was to pay off: Today, the name LUBING is a household name among breeders and fatteners worldwide and stands for highly specialised drinking, conveying and climate control systems. LUBING Maschinenfabrik has grown steadily and now employs more than 200 people. In 1977, Schumacher founded the company BARKU-Kunststofftechnik. Over the years, this has developed from a subsidiary into an independent specialist for innovative plastic parts.

Both companies are expanding in order to remain well positioned on the market in the future. In the spirit of Egon Schumacher, innovation and quality are still the top priorities today.
