Change of location for Möllers Packaging Technology

Company news

The Beckum-based packaging technology company is changing its location in 2024 – from Sudhoferweg in Beckum to the "Oelde A2" industrial estate in Oelde, just 12 km further away. The new headquarter is more modern and efficient in several aspects: logistics, economy, energy and sustainability.  

Beckum, 13.01.2023 For more than 70 years, the company founded in 1952, then known as Maschinenfabrik E. Möllers KG, has been driving packaging technology forward from Beckum. Next year, a new chapter begins for Möllers Packaging Technology (MPT), which meanwhile operates worldwide. In nearby Oelde, MPT and its workforce of almost one hundred will continue to develop and manufacture machines and systems for filling, packaging and loading processes on a total area of around 15,000 m2

New location. More future. 

In order to answer future questions on safe filling, palletizing and conveying, the company, which has established itself as a pioneering supplier of complete systems and supplies all system components along the full line from a single source, is openly embracing long-term changes. The new location will reflect precisely this spirit of the future: The bright, inviting and above all barrier-free office space extends over three floors and a total area of 1,500 m2. The employees of Möllers Packaging Technology can look forward to modern operating and work equipment and the latest digital standards. However, the 6,000 m2 production area also allows production to be optimized towards smoother process cycles with less encounter traffic, which was unavoidable at the previous location. The previous property in Beckum will remain in use by the company group, which has been in existence since 2021 with its Belgian sister company Arodo.


The workforce will remain 

"It was particularly important to us to choose a location that is easily accessible for all employees – we wanted to avoid fluctuation by all means," says Thomas Vertgewall, CEO of MPT. In addition to the company's existing benefits (flexible working hours, capital-forming benefits, special payments under collective bargaining agreements), the team benefits from particularly good accessibility. The innovative location also offers potential for future talent in the region. 


Good for the environment and logistics 

Optimization measures in the sense of sustainability were consistently considered for the logistically optimally located site near the access road to the A2. "As a regionally based company with global sales territories, we take a far-sighted approach to our economic, ecological and social responsibilities. That's why we evaluated ways to make our new headquarter as energy-efficient as possible," says Vertgewall. The parking lots as well as roofing are equipped with photovoltaic systems and there will be charging stations for e-vehicles, among other things. Vertgewall is optimistic about the future: "We are looking forward to the new location and the good cooperation with the city of Oelde. As a company that spans generations, it's essential to consistently embrace change and take advantage of the potential that comes with it."
