LANGGUTH is founded by mechanical engineer Albin Langguth. Type of business: any kind of repairs (machines in breweries, dairies, laundries, filling machines, etc.) and the construction of new machines.
The company has been bombed out three times during the war. In March 1945 the company ceases to exist. However, knowledge and know-how remains as well as the ambition to revive the success before the war.
As the premises located on the street Dahlweg become too small for the revived company the family buys a 5.000 m2 plot from the city of Muenster situated in the street Daimlerweg.
Ferdinand Langguth becomes general manager.
LANGGUTH manufactures the first fully automatic labelling machine “Unomatic” with a maximum capacity of 7.000 labellings/hour.
LANGGUTH develops a high performance labelling machine based on hotmelt labelling technology. This machine has a significant lower glue consumption compared to earlier manufactured machines and is able to label 1000 cans per minute.
LANGGUTH expands its activities on a worldwide level and requires more space in order to meet the increasing demand. In February 1992 the whole company moves to a 15.000 m2 site located in Senden-Bösensell.
After the death of Ferdinand Langguth his children Irene and Hilmar Langguth become owner of the company. The achievements in research and development are profitable: LANGGUTH includes pail destackers, pail closing machines and hotmelt rotary machines in its production programme.
LANGGUTH develops a labelling machine for self-adhesive labels to face the new requirements of the market.
Considering customers’ requirements as well as the inventive talent of LANGGUTH’s engineers new innovations are generated. Labelling machines for self-adhesive labels, pail destackers and pail clothing machines basically used in the paint and varnish industry extend the range of products.
LANGGUTH develops a rotary labeller using servo technology. This invention allows a flexible application of wet glue, hotmelt or self-adhesive labels.
