Innovations are generally inventions that make everyday living easier. And to improve the tried-and-tested always constitutes a special challenge. Our goal: To completely reliably, quickly, and quietly banish odours, cooking vapours, and particles of fat. With the unique and patented berbel principle and the knowledge and dedication of our engineers and designers, we create top quality solutions.Extractor hoods, for example, have been on the market for around 70 years. But the systems for extracting and filtering cooking vapours have always employed the same principle, which has hardly changed since then.Only berbel has been able to improve on the conventional technology. With its own research department, innovative ideas and great passion, berbel has set new standards for the quality of design and function.The result: berbel extractor hoods are quieter, significantly more efficient, use considerably less energy, and don’t lose their extraction power over time. And – as a result of cooperation with famous product designers – they also look so good that they’ve been awarded many design prizes.berbel Ablufttechnik GmbH is a globally active company based in Rheine, Westphalia, in Germany. As of December 2012, berbel is a 100% company of the Swiss WESCO Group. The Swiss provider of efficient ventilation and filter systems has been active in a leading position on the market for more than 40 years. Together, the companies are able to realise valuable synergies in research and development. This means that our customers benefit from double the innovation power for trend-setting ventilation concepts for the kitchen and living space.berbel extractor hoods and ventilation systems are developed and produced in Germany and exported throughout the world.
