Blue Competence Initiative

The Blue Competence sustainability initiative stands for leadership in innovation and technology for sustainable solutions in mechanical and plant engineering. With the Blue Competence brand, the partner companies have made a public commitment to the twelve sustainability principles of mechanical and plant engineering.


The initiative's partners see themselves as a community with shared values, whose corporate actions are characterised by social responsibility and a responsible use of natural resources. They express this through sustainable products, production and management processes.

IBG is part of this initiative.

Optimisation of production processes in all sectors

Automation and Robotics as instruments for increasing the efficiency of industrial production processes are designed and developed by the IBG / Goeke Technology Group, under the guiding principle "Transformation of human genius into technical perfection". Technology solutions and high technology systems are designed for the individual requirements of our global clients and all sectors, from our main headquarters in Neuenrade, Dortmund.

Automotive solutions, robotics-based solutions and other technology systems from the IBG / Goeke Technology Group are best-in-the-class industry technologies. We achieve this top level in industrial technology through close interlinking of decades of experience as engineers with science and research. We ensure that our know-how in the automotive and robotics fields, as well as our technology service, benefits from optimisation of industrial processes, but without losing sight at the person at the centre of it all – learn more about our social engagement here.
