Overview of the IBS Group
Our flood-defence systems - like this one in Bewdley (UK) - provide protection for towns, cities and buildings worldwide

IBS Technics GmbH introduces itself

Founded in 1994 for the purpose of manufacturing spill-retention barriers, IBS has gone on to develop its technology continuously. This technology used to prevent spillages affecting a surrounding area was used to develop the idea of stop logs and panels for use in mobile flood-defences and to stem flows of water. With great success.

Thanks to further technological developments in this area, mobile flood-defences can now be used to prevent entire districts and towns from being inundated. The big advantage of such a system is that it avoids major disruption to urban life. Thanks to the continued development of IBS flood defence technology, we were soon able to handle containment heights of up to five metres. One big market advantage - which we have demonstrated with major projects such as those in Cologne and Hamburg (both in Germany), Vienna (Austria), Bewdley (UK) or Evansville (Indiana, USA) - is our ability to protect entire towns from flooding.

Our civil-defence applications (mobile flood-prevention, hydraulic steel structures and spill retention) have been developed in parallel with our non-encased valve fittings, which quickly became another fixed part of IBS operations. Our slide-valve systems and stoplog closures are used to equip water-treatment plants, pumping stations and industrial facilities all over the world.
