A success story that began in 1956: By using our trailers for our own horses, we were able to make our products better and better with each passing year. In this way, Böckmann became the market leader for horse trailers in Germany – and one of the leading trailer brands in Europe. Today, the Böckmann Group has more than 350 employees. More than 500,000 trailers have been produced in our vehicle factory and shipped all across the globe. All of our innovations have one thing in common: only those prototypes that live up to our own high standards – and are good enough for our own horses – will go into production. That’s the way it has been since 1956, and it’s not going to change in the future. You have the word of the entire Böckmann family – an equestrian family if there ever was one.
With 50 years of first-hand experience in equestrian sports, Böckmann offers a wide range of special solutions. Among these specialties are our exclusive Horse Trucks, which leave nothing to be desired.

The Böckmann Truck Center in Lastrup is absolutely unique in Germany.

The developments at Summerwind continue. In recent years, horse blanket dryers that work particularly efficiently with warm air have also been added. Riding hall mirrors and mobile irrigation systems complete the portfolio of equestrian equipment accessories.

NORKA AUTOMATION specialises in "Intelligence for light and building technology" and develops control systems for individual lighting concepts in industrial, business, retail and sport facility settings, as well as complete control systems for all elements of building technology.
For equestrian centres we offer horse-friendly lighting solutions for indoor and outdoor riding arenas, lunging facilities and access routes. The integrated solutions provide customers with a comprehensive service - from planning through to initial operation. Both our hardware and our software are exclusively Made in Germany.
The horse-friendly lighting for indoor arenas ensures light is shed uniformly across the entire area. A broad spectrum of light prevents glare. Bright, soft light reduces the formation of shadows and improves horses' visual comfort, allowing them to be more relaxed and concentrated when working. Switching on or off, or adapting of the intensity can be done very softly to be particularly horse-friendly.
The LED lamps used in the latest technology are long-lasting, effective and energy-saving. Our control systems offer flexibility to suit various individual requirements such as daylight control, motion detection, timer programmes, central control and monitoring, online-remote monitoring, etc.
Many safety and building automation functions can be integrated into the control system, providing smart control and and monitoring of the facilities and stables. These include time or motion-controlled activation/deactivation of stable and outdoor lighting, control of skylights and ventilation, monitoring of water troughs for frost and leakage, door monitoring, and event notification via email and SMS.
