The origin of our company was in 1976. At that time Uwe Kohlhoff founded a specialised company for sheet metal processing. Thanks to its high operational flexibility and the specialisation in the processing of stainless steel, KOHLHOFF was soon able to construct and produce custom-made articles of the most diverse kinds. An up to then very successful development resulted in the foundation of our present company in the early 1990s.
The performance focusses of the KOHLHOFF Hygienetechnik GmbH & Co. KG encompass development, production and sales of own hygiene technology machines, appliances and equipment in order to comply with the worldwide applicable regulations for personnel and industrial hygiene for food processing companies.
The consistent implementation of existing hygiene guidelines in almost all sectors of food production has been leading to sustained demand for our hygienic solutions for a number of years. In order to enable the continuation and further development of the resulting positive business development to its full potential with market-oriented and innovative products, a further capacity expansion was required, which however could not be realized to the desired extent at the current location.
The KOHLHOFF Hygienetechnik GmbH & Co. KG acquired the suitable area with a surface of approx. 13,000 m² to enable a complete company relocation - only 600 m away from the old site. There, a new building with a total usable area of 5,000 m² was erected, consisting of a two-aisle production hall as well as of a two-storied office building where we moved to on November 1, 2017.
Due to the redesign and the optimization of process flows, organization and logistics as well as investments in further new powerful production plants, we now have the ideal framework conditions for a continuing successful development in our new company building.
