Foundation of the company by mechanical engineer Albin Langguth
Type of business: any kind of repairs (machines in breweries, dairies, laundries, filling machines, etc.) and the construction of new machines
The company as bombed out three times during the war. In March 1945 the company ceased to exist. However, knowledge and know-how remained as well as the ambition to rebuild on the success before the war.
As the premises located on the street Dahlweg became too small for the revived company the family bought a 5.000 m2 piece of land from the city of Münster situated in the street Daimlerweg. Ferdinand Langguth became general manager in the year 1962.
LANGGUTH manufactured the first fully automatic labelling machine “Unomatic” with a maximum capacity of 7.000 Labellings/hour.
LANGGUTH had extended its activities on a worldwide level and required more space in order to meet the increasing demand. In February 1992 the whole company moved to a 15.000 m2 site located in Senden-Bösensell.
Irene und Hilmar Langguth, children from Ferdinand Langguth, became owner of the company. The achievement in research and development were fruitful: LANGGUTH included pail destackers, pail closing machines and hotmelt rotary machines in its production programme.
Taking the customers’ requirements as a basis the engineers from Langguth created further innovations. Labelling machines for self-adhesive labels, pail destackers and pail clothing machines basically used in the paint and varnish industry extended the range of products.
Klaus Pekruhl has become chief executive from LANGGUTH and secures the company’s future using the knowledge and experience he had gained in a variety of German engineering companies.
Hilmar Langguth died in a tragic accident.
Irene Langguth was the sole owner of the company.
