Information for Our Customers Amid the Spiralling Coronavirus Crisis
The German government already decided some days ago that all shops that are not necessary for the supply of essential commodities to the public must stay closed.
IBAK is still here for you!
We too are taking responsible action and avoid subjecting customers, our staff and the general public to unnecessary serious risks. We are doing our share.
IBAK has taken the following precautions until further notice
- Some of our staff are working from home.
- Some of our staff are being withdrawn from active business so that they can form a substitute team if necessary. As things now stand, this will enable us to provide continuous service to our customers
- Trade shows, meetings, training courses and conferences have been cancelled or postponed (to begin with until 10th April 2020)
- Visits to customers have been postponed as far as possible.
- We observe the recommended social distancing rules.
For you, this means
- We will continue our business operations in line with these precautionary measures as long as we possibly can.
- We are available for service and consultation as usual.
You can still contact our
sales department, and the
support and service department.
Your contacts are reachable on the telephone and by email.
- We ask you for your understanding and your patience regarding the fact that some members of our staff are not on the IBAK premises at present. We will do our best to deal with your requests as quickly as possible.
As soon as the situation permits, we will be here for you again permanently at IBAK with our entire staff. We are convinced that with these measures we are taking responsible action in the interest of our staff and business partners. We are confident that, together with you, we will be able to cope successfully with the times!
Stay in good health!
Founded in 1945 as a small consulting engineering firm, IBAK is today the biggest manufacturer and supplier
of pipe inspection systems and is at the same time the oldest company in the trade. With our more than 70
years of experience and the extremely high demands we place on our products – and also on ourselves – we
provide optimum benefit to our customers. More than 350 people work day for day at our locations in Kiel
and our branch offices in Krefeld, Georgsmarienhütte/Osnabrück, Durmersheim and Illerrieden/Ulm to ensure
that this stays this way.
IBAK products work in the dark, but their success is visible. Throughout the world operators use the
innovative sewer inspection system by this Kiel-based market leader. IBAK's presence is felt all over
When the company founder Helmut Hunger set up his business "Ingenieur Büro Atlas Kiel" in 1945, he did
not give a thought to going global. It was his personal quest to develop perfectly functioning
precision instruments. Even today IBAK is just as passionate about meeting those targets. Finding
innovative and user-friendly solutions is always the company's prime objective. It thus comes as no
surprise that the IBAK organization, after many years of research and development, presented the first
sewer TV inspection system in the world in 1957.
From human to human
Products by IBAK are technological masterpieces. And with one in six of our over 350 colleagues working
in research and development, that is no wonder. Our highly experienced engineers, the continuous
exchange of ideas with customers and the well-established cooperation with universities and
professional bodies all ensure the development of trend-setting technologies and their conversion into
practical designs. The result is that IBAK systems are powerful, durable, user-friendly,
low-maintenance, high-tech solutions.
What started in Kiel is now well known throughout the world. Just as every year Kiel welcomes the world
for its "Kieler Woche" – the biggest sailing event in the world – IBAK sets its course for more than 40
countries. All IBAK products have one thing in common: they provide 'made in Germany' quality. All
system components as well as the hardware and software are developed, produced, assembled and tested by
IBAK. Relevant standards, such as ISO, DIN, all EC Directives as well as ATEX and IECEx certificates of
quality, constitute merely the minimum requirements for us.
Count on IBAK
With their high quality standards, IBAK products are always a safe investment. Despite the exceptional
characteristics of our products, economic factors have always been decisive.
Protect the environment
Just as every department of IBAK is governed by a strict environmental management system to protect
natural resources, so also do IBAK's inspection systems contribute to environmental protection. IBAK
systems detect damage in fresh water pipes and sewers, thus helping to protect our valuable drinking
water for the future.
The extraordinary driving experience
When talking about innovation, that is where the PEGASUS HD camera, with both its fully HD
high-resolution and the brilliant picture it produces, as well as the digital PANORAMO sewer inspection
system shine brightest. Driving through the world of sewers with the PANORAMO is a unique 3D
experience. Analysis of the entire inspection data is not carried out in the inspection vehicle on-site
as was previously the case. Instead it is analysed in the comfort of the office, although the feeling
of working with a pan and tilt camera in the pipe remains.
