Franke Beverage Systems becomes BLEFA BEVERAGE SYSTEMS

The strategic reorientation of our company will now see the FRANKE Group in future focussing on Kitchen Systems, Water Systems, Foodservice Systems and Coffee Systems. Consequently, the division BLEFA BEVERAGE SYSTEMS no longer fits in with the FRANKE Group’s business focus. As part of the restructuring process, BLEFA BEVERAGE SYSTEMS has left the FRANKE Group and will operate in future within the Artemis Group – to which FRANKE still belongs. This means we’ll now be reporting more directly to our owner Michael Pieper.
