Award-winning animal husbandry

Bavarian animal welfare award for calf husbandry in a HALTEC OUTDOOR CLIMATE STABLE

Farm owner and HALTEC customer Frieder Meidert from Soyen, Germany, was awarded the Bavarian Animal Welfare Award by Agriculture Minister Helmut Brunner in September 2015.

Farm owner and HALTEC customer Frieder Meidert from Soyen, Germany, was awarded the Bavarian Animal Welfare Award by Agriculture Minister Helmut Brunner in September 2015. The animal husbandry operations of Frieder Meidert were selected by a panel of experts and practitioners in category "New builds - calf and feed barns".

Mr Meidert's aim was to move away from traditional heated feed facilities. By newly constructing two HALTEC steel buildings, outdoor climate shelters were produced, utilising neck bars rather than individual animal pens. Freider Meidert is dedicated to rearing stronger and healthier animals with fewer losses due to injury thanks to changes to his farming approach.

HALTEC produced the outdoor climate facility with steel buildings measuring 14x36m and 14x45m, both with eccentric ridges. The halls are equipped with lift-up windows and side curtains for excellent ventilation and lighting. Thanks to the large sliding and rolling shutters, even large machinery can move around freely. In the roof, 30 mm sandwich panels offer condensation protection or a cooling effect in the summer months. In addition, the smooth inner surface of the panels is easy to clean. HALTEC was able to design a hall comfortable for both animals and farm staff at any time of the day or year.

The Bavarian animal welfare award has been awarded by the Bavarian State Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Forestry since 2014. Awards go to small-scale technical, structural or management measures to improve animal welfare in farming. Measures must be sustainable, fit for purpose and transferable to other agricultural animal-rearing businesses. The prize is €10,000 and can be distributed to multiple winners.

Quality signed and sealed

Aluflex temporary building distinguished in focus test

Seal of approval for Aluflex – our light-frame hall defies the stresses of agricultural operations and satisfies all requirements!

Whether you want simple stables, a light-flooded indoor riding arena, a flexible multi-purpose hall or storage space for everyday agricultural goods, our Aluflex temporary building is designed for every agricultural needs. The hall consists of a robust bolted aluminium structure, covered with a highly tear-resistant fabric cover.

The testing laboratory of the German agricultural society (DLG) has investigated the extent to which the installed materials meet demands in animal husbandry. The focus test closely examines individual quality criteria.

Aluminium profiles and tarpaulins were put through their paces. Test conditions in a chemical bath simulated years of intensive direct contact with concentrated manure, food acids and detergents. In a climate chamber, testers observed the effects of stable air over a period of at least 20 years. Fabric strips of the tarpaulin were mounted on a scaffolding and exposed to uniform tensile loads using weights.

The result? Our aluminium profiles and tarpaulins cover all requirements! Both materials are resistant to acids and ammonia. They thus defy the stresses commonplace in an agricultural facility.

The seal of approval also applies to our Aluflex.compact range — a compact version largely free of the constraints of planning red tape. The temporary agricultural building is suitable as a shelter on pastures, as a parking facility for machinery and equipment or as a storage facility for straw and hay.

ARRIVAL CENTRE FOR REFUGEES

HALTEC DELIVERS TEMPORARY BUILDINGS

HALTEC delivered 8 temporary buildings for a new arrival centre for refugees in Munich. The plant was opened for ongoing use immediately after its completion in July 2015.

To keep pace with the increasing number of asylum seekers, a solution for a new initial intake facility had to be found quickly. A combination of 8 temporary buildings and 95 container modules were chosen.

Over 40,000 refugees have arrived in Munich since the beginning of the year according to authorities. This equates to 250 to 350 refugees a day; a number which the previous arrival centre in Munich could no longer handle. To keep pace with the increasing number of asylum seekers, a solution for a new initial intake facility had to be found quickly. A combination of 8 temporary buildings and 95 container modules were chosen. These were built on a 2,500 m² site in Munich's Euroindustriepark.

The aim was to make the new complex much more humane. People arriving from all over the world, most exhausted and impoverished, will be met in future by multilingual employees with flyers in 27 languages. They will then be able to rest and recuperate in a cafeteria facility until undergoing medical screening and an initial registration. More than 100 people working partly on a three shift basis make sure the process runs smoothly. If everything goes to plan, about two-thirds of the people will leave the city of Munich again and be accommodated in other administrative districts or Federal States.

NEW AWARD

HALTEC WINS TOP INNOVATOR AWARD

HALTEC reaches "Top 100". Tribute by journalist and TV host Ranga Yogeshwar at the German SME Summit in Essen.

For over 20 years, the "Top 100" seal has come to represent innovative capacity, thirst for knowledge and team spirit. For the second time, HALTEC has been selected as among Germany's most innovative companies.

HALTEC hall systems offer variety with a capital "V". The "Top 100" company from Hemer in North Rhine-Westphalia builds halls, almost every one of which is unique. Whether you need a steel building for production, to extend a hall to increase storage space, or a mobile marquee solution as temporary sales space — our company "delivers to order". A key success factor of the family company is the informal cooperation between technology and sales.

Innovation is part of day-to-day business. For instance when converting standards around the load capacity of hall roofing from DIN to Eurocode. Our new Aluflex.plus temporary buildings cope well for instance when it comes to the particularly high requirements associated with large widths, snow and wind loads. At annual strategy meetings involving the various divisions, we also evaluate pilot projects in retrospect and with a view to the future. The company, now in receipt of its second "top 100" award, offers its employees further training opportunities, internal training courses and external trainers. "Such success is possible only with highly motivated and well trained employees," says Managing Director Jens Geißner, he himself an adherent to the principle of 'lifelong learning', along colleagues Markus Speck and Thomas Arens.

For Jens Geißner, achieving a place in the "Top 100" is something very special: "Being awarded the "Top 100" seal is a reward for all our collective hard work. Though being innovative means we cannot rest on our laurels. That's why we are celebrating today - and tomorrow we'll be back in the office working on new ideas."
