The BBF company
Decades of experience in sterilisation and microbiology

BBF Sterilisationsservice GmbH is a young company that simultaneously builds on decades of experience in the area of sterilisation and microbiology.

BBF emerged from a company of the Rüsch Group in Kernen, whose tradition dates back to the 19th century. Founded in 1968 as the sterilisation department of Willy Rüsch AG, the gamma irradiation division was spun off to Rüsch Sterilisation Service GmbH in 2001 together with the microbiology department that had since been established. In 2005 the company was taken over as part of a management buyout and renamed BBF Sterilisationsservice GmbH. Subsequently, in addition to the business areas of radiation sterilisation and microbiology, the contract packaging sector for medical devices and a packaging testing laboratory were established as further pillars. The BBF team currently consists of 80+ employees.
