Malek Brautech

Malek Brautech GmbH are one of the leading specialists in keg treatment systems, hold several patents, and their international customers include Diageo Group and Efes Group. We are proud to be their UK agents.

Here are some of the reasons why we choose Malek for keg cleaning and filling systems:


Co-founder, Herbert Malek, brought 45 years of experience engineering and developing keg systems when he established Malek Brautech in 1992. Herbert began his professional career at one of the first engineering firms (Weigel) in Germany involved in the design and manufacture of keg systems, where he progressed to the Head of the Technical Department. Herbert went on to set up an engineering consultancy firm and it was during this phase that he developed a keg cleaning process which is still regarded as one of the best in the industry in terms of effectiveness. Since it's inception, Malek Brautech has developed a strong portfolio of innovative keg cleaning and filling systems, aided by the passion and commitment of Herbert's son, Alexander. In 2014 Alexander took over the management of the company becoming CEO, safeguarding company as a family-owned OEM (original equipment manufacturer).
