Die Geschichte von Helmers Maschinenbau

Mechanical engineering is passion and attention to detail. Company founder Ralph Helmers knew this when he founded the Helmers Maschinenbau company in 1986. Initially, the young company mainly builds custom machines, including for clean room technology. Another business area is swiftly added with the production of special system components in stainless steel processing.

Solutions for the meat processing industry are found with the construction and assembly of smaller cattle and pig slaughtering plants. The number and complexity of different projects are increasing continuously along with the development of the Design department. The development of solutions for in-house logistics becomes an additional area of responsibility - today, intralogistics one of our core competencies.

The hard work continues to pay off: The takeover of the insolvent competitor Dörfel Lebensmitteltechnik GmbH & Co. KG in 2008, boosts the range in picking and order picking warehouses.

How do you become more productive? By using synergies efficiently: In May 2010, the two production sites are brought together at the current location in Osnabrück and a new plant with an office building is built. In the newly created, ultra-modern factory, both companies now operate on a generous 3,000 m² of production space and 600 m² of office space.

Forwards, always forwards! (freely based on Olli Kahn): The company grows, the location is expanded. An additional office building with an attached workshop complements the first construction phase from 2010. There is now more than 5,000 m² of production space and 1,000 m² of office space.

I did it my way ... Ralph Helmers, founder of Helmers Maschinenbau, is leaving the company after 34 years of successful work and is entering a well-deserved retirement. Everyone at Helmers Maschinenbau thanks you for your work! With Hubertus Lübbert zur Lage as sole managing director, we can all look to the future with confidence. 

The stage is set for the next stage of expansion: Thanks to the positive market prospects for Helmers Maschinenbau and the associated strategic perspectives, the management team is welcoming a new member - Stefan Nötzel becomes the second managing director and partner alongside Hubertus Lübbert zur Lage. The merger of Dörfel GmbH with Helmers Maschinenbau GmbH is realized.

Helmers Maschinenbau - a company in demand for a wide range of conveyor technology and intralogistics. “Intralogistic Systems” - from now on, this phrase represents not only the national but also the increased international orientation of the company.

With passion and skill for the company: The approximately 70 employees who work so successfully today in the areas of consulting and sales, after-sales services, technology, automation, production and administration, are at the heart of Helmers Maschinenbau.

Every year, up to six young employees are meticulously trained to become precision mechanics, mechatronics technicians, technical product designers, industrial clerks and office clerks.

With this valuable capital, Helmers Maschinenbau can look to the future with confidence!
