Kufferath was founded back in 1782 in Mariaweiler nearby Düren. The headquarters still remain located at the same site.

Originally, Kufferath manufactured hand moulds as well as bronze fabrics for pre-industrial paper production. When paper making processes became industrialised around beginning of the 19th Century through changeover to fourdrinier machines, Kufferath's industrial era set in as well.

In 2008, Kufferath's former Solid/Liquid Separation division was taken over by Gebr. Bellmer to be continued at the same site as BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery GmbH. Nowadays, our product range mainly comprises products for solid/liquid separation processes, apart from special open rolls for paper industry applications.

BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery applies the utmost carefulness to provide an excellent individual customer support. After all, we are a family-owned company and want you as our customers to be positively aware of that. Our Proprietors, the Kollmar family, guarantee smooth order processings.

Always at your service
Around-the-clock service is a matter of course for us as many customer applications are supposed to constantly run around the clock as well. In urgent cases, our staff can even be reached privately.

For sure, globalisation already has become a reality and many orders could possibly not become more internationalised.

However, BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery projects still enjoy some German virtues such as accuracy, sound organisation and punctuality, i.e. not only Project Engineering is carried out in Germany but also all essential manufacturing steps. As we constantly further develop our manufacturing know-how our customers naturally continue to profit from this. Not for nothing, our screw presses are considered as the benchmark for top-quality screw press manufacturing in the global market.

You depend on a constant availability of your machines and systems, as downtimes often induce high losses. For this reason, quality products do have the utmost priority.

For BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery, focussing on quality already starts with the initial development phase. All of our specific customers' demands and requests are attentively taken into account. Our Engineers' work is based upon our customers' requirements and they already work closely together with both Production and Quality Control in the projects' initial phase. Our products are only allowed to leave our factory after having passed a careful and tight pre-assembly phase.

Also the quality of our vendor parts is subject to strict control measures. The quality-conscious working of our staff is a further guarantee to maintain our accustomed high quality level in the future.

Innovation Through Motivation - People Determine Our Future.

Our customers as well as our staff are BELLEMR KUFFERATH's top priority. The success of our company is based upon the know-how and the devoted cooperation of our personnel. Field-specific training programmes ensure a good foundation for the support of each and every member of our staff.
