Bernd Münstermann GmbH & Co.KG
Since the take-over of the company by Bernd Münstermann in 1978 – now in its fifth generation -, Münstermann has become one of the leading companies in the field of plant engineering world-wide. It is especially in the last decade with the growth of globalisation that the company has developed into an efficient and globally-operating industrial business. The key functions of Münstermann lie in the design, development and production of specialist facilities for a wide array of applications and industrial segments. From the start the emphasis of production has been on drying plants, such as for example, drying conveyors, continuous-flow driers and chamber drying ovens. Having taken over the production of material-handling and de-dusting systems, it has been possible for Münstermann to position itself as a complete supplier of drying and heat-treatment units including their ancillary conveyor and filter technologies currently available in the market.
Principles, Mission, Vision
We are a financially independent family business with a firm base in Westbevern. Respect and mutual appreciation shown to each other and towards customers and suppliers are the basis of our work.Mission
We develop solutions.
From the initial contact by the customer to the commissioning and handover of the unit everything possible is done to conclude a project to the customer’s satisfaction.Vision
Our customers witness us as competent partners.
As technological leaders we work in especially selected branches with the respective market leaders.
Bernd Münstermann GmbH & Co KG designs, develops and produces special machines with complex requirements for its customers worldwide. So that these requirements and the customers' expectations are covered and implemented, internal departmental project meetings are obligatory for every project. Here the optimal progress and the individual project tasks are concentrated on.
From this a timetable is produced, which allows the Quality Assurance Department to select quality-planning measures at every phase of the project, and which takes the form of a Quality Control Plan (QCP). In this plan all the relevant checks, as for example, the customers' individual wishes or the requirements, based on DIN and other standards, are recorded.
The various checks of the individual components and the required documentation can be instantly presented. The quality assurance made available by the QCP includes internal, as well as, external inspections and approvals of the individual components; modules etc, in order to ensure the required quality standards and the regulatory requirements are maintained.
Continuous checks and production controls
Verification processes and the accompanying documentation flow are continually checked and improved on by us as well as the suppliers. As a result we minimise the discrepancies in our Goods-in Department. Here every incoming component is checked and the results are documented accordingly. The Goods-in Department constitutes an important link in the quality assurance chain at Münstermann for this reason.
In order to be able to carry out in-house checks on finished components and units we have our own production control process. All trials and trial runs are therefore recorded and documented. After this a quality document is produced, in which the total number of checks are to be found. These can of course be made available to the customer.
Audits and certifications
Overall Münstermann cultivates a cooperative style of management throughout its departments. This produces a climate, in which every individual can work carefully and responsibly. Münstermann has been certified ISO 9001 since 1995. The quality management system is subject to regular audits and is constantly updated.
The CE marking of raw materials, components and units is standard for us. Münstermann is also certified amongst other things under DIN EN 1090, which allows us to work on projects up to EXC 3.
Development and production at the highest possible standards
Our quality management system (according to DIN-EN ISO 9001:2008) was certified for the first time in 1995 and is understood as a management and guidance philosophy. From the continuous monitoring of business processes, internal proceedings and structures, the sensibility of our staff is focused on what is essential. In this context, support is given by the management consultancy Ingenieurbüro Schäfer.
The highest possible production and quality standards are guaranteed by employing the most modern practices of design, development and production.
Since the end of 2007 Münstermann has been certified according to the SCC (Safety Certificate Contractors) for the assembly, service, maintenance and repair of drying and thermal treatment units as well as for the material handling and industrial de-dusting equipment.
The certification SCC embodies rules and regulations for a management system. Aspects of working safety, health and environmental protection are included. It was produced originally in the petrochemistry for companies which intended to work as contractors.
