Welcome!

Who we are

We are bioconstruct. We are an owner- and family-held business that stands for stability and reliability. This is a principle that we apply in all areas consistently, be it our accounting policies or our stainless-steel screws. In all cases, we work for the benefit of our customers, employees and business partners.

#mission

What we do

Clean water and air, biodiversity, healthy ecosystems and peaceful human coexistence are the most-precious things we have. We seek to contribute a significant part in preserving these.

#vision

Why we do what we do

We firmly believe that by establishing a focus on sustainability we can achieve a harmony between the economy and our environment allowing us not to live at the expense of future generations.

Attitude & values

‘Those who seek joy in their own value must value the world themselves.’

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

#teamspirit

We’re a green team! With a vibrant team spirit, we shape our actions and working environment in a way that gives us joy as we work on our mission. It takes a strong team to develop each one´s personal responsibility.

""

#equals

We interact with people in an egalitarian way. We don’t have time for vanity, self-importance, arrogance or affectations. We see objective criticism as stimulation to progress our personal development.

#trust

We encourage our employees to act like businesspeople within their business. This involves us putting trust in our people, allowing them a large amount of flexibility in a trust-based working hour system and not using time/attendance systems.

#transparency

We let our employees participate in our business planning and key decisions. We see that transparency works and appreciate what our people give back to us.

#responsibility

There’s no need to be afraid of decisions and it’s better to make a wrong one than none at all. We learn from mistakes and don’t let them happen a second time. We each have personal responsibility individually, and responsibility for each other collectively.

#knowledge

Sharing knowledge allows us to move forward faster. We encourage all of our employees to share their findings and thoughts when they might be useful for others. We put a strong emphasis on training and ongoing courses.

#fun

We value each other, laugh together and respect each person individually just as they are. We celebrate success together and support each other in challenging situations. When it comes to our work, we don’t need to be told to have fun. The fun comes naturally.

""

#openness

We welcome anyone who approaches us with the same openness that we approach them with. We are curious people, even in unfamiliar situations, and look forward to new experiences.

#health

Health, physical fitness and mental balance are the foundation for doing any work productively. We promote healthy and fresh food, exercise and non-car-based forms of transport.

6 quick-fire questions – messaging with the management

Henrik Borgmeyer

Henrik worked in project development at Nordex, a manufacturer of wind energy systems, back when he was studying English and Physics at university. When he was a partner at EEG Energie Expertise GmbH, he prepared assessments of wind- and emissions. Henrik founded bioconstruct in 2001 and is now in charge of its project development, financing and operation of the owned plants.

Kai Hubert Roth

Kai holds a degree in business administration. Before joining bioconstruct as Chief Financial Officer, he worked at a listed company that manufactures biogas plants. Thanks to the breadth of his experience, he has been able to extend his sphere of responsibility far beyond finances. For instance, Kai has significant responsibility at bioconstruct for the company’s further internationalisation.

Matthias Kief

Matthias is a trained electrical technician for energy systems and has obtained a great amount of practical experience in agriculture through his side jobs. Matthias founded bioconstruct together with Henrik and another partner. Matthias has been in charge of sales at bioconstruct since the company was founded. Moreover, he is also strongly involved in the technical concept design of its biogas plants.

Mehmet Önal

Mehmet was bioconstruct’s first recruit, being hired to work in project management after completing his civil-engineering degree. As a valuable team member, Mehmet has been in charge of all project management since 2008 and is also responsible for construction execution and commissioning. He also manages and oversees our activities in the Turkish market.

bioconstruct hilft Kindern in Not

bioconstruct helps terre des hommes. For the 50th year of its existence, the German Children’s Fund is calling on people to join in on a donation drive called ‘Wie weit würdest du gehen?!’ (How Far Would You Go?!). It is planning to raise €5 million through challenges that people take on themselves. Individuals, associations and businesses can join in, and we’re part of it! The money is intended to fund schooling for children in need. €60 can send a child to school for one year in developing countries.

terre des hommes is an international children’s aid organisation based in Osnabrück, Germany. A non-profit organisation, it supports over 400 projects for disadvantaged and exploited children worldwide.

By taking advantage of lots of small ideas, campaigns and events, we’re seeking to win our big challenge and achieve our donations target: €10,000 for  terre des hommes. This could send 166 disadvantaged children in developing countries to school for one year.
