Who we are

Founded in Krefeld/Germany in 1933 BEHN + BATES rapidly became known for robust and 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, Oelde/Germany, one of the leading packing machine manufacturers, we have specialised in the food industries from the end of the 90s.

Today BEHN + BATES is an independently working company with more than 65 highly motivated employees in the world-wide active HAVER® Group and can offer you the advantages of high flexibility as well as the inventiveness and the experience of an international company.

With customers in more than 60 countries around the globe we have developed a variety of packaging solutions. We have designed, built and supplied the required packaging technology and successfully put it into operation in close cooperation with the end users. Leading groups of food companies trust in our technology, as do small factories. We have the bagging solution for each product, for each type of bag and for manual or fully automatic operations.
