Welcome to the BEHN + BATES world of packaging


Founded in Krefeld, Germany in 1933, BEHN + BATES rapidly became known for high quality bag filling machines. In the early stages the focus was on all industries filling their products into bags. However, since being taken over by HAVER & BOECKER in 1994, we have specialized in the food, animal feed and pet food industries from the end of the 90s. We design, build and supply food-optimized packaging solutions for bulk products. In addition, we offer solutions for liquid filling, material processing or complete automation of entire processes in close cooperation with our sister companies.
