From Hopsten to the World

The foundations for the now internationally successful B&B – MAF GmbH & Co. KG were laid back in 1977 when Jost Bäumer established a mechanical engineering design office.


In addition to the design services provided, in-house ideas were soon being implemented as well. Under the name B&B, the specialisation shifted towards the development and construction of bag making machines.


Through the acquisition of MAF Verpackungstechnik GmbH in 2004, it was possible to expand the company's area of expertise to include machines for end of line packaging.
Today, more than 185 employees at the 13,000 m² large production plant in Hopsten (Germany) and Green Bay, Wisconsin (USA) are working to create technical solutions for customers. The owner-operated company primarily focuses on developing machines for both bag making and end of line packaging.


Constantly high quality standards and a global service promise, a combination of longstanding employees and young creative talents, as well as flexibility and dependability make B&B – MAF GmbH & Co. KG stand out from the crowd. Thanks to short chains of command, the company can constantly work in a flexible and unconventional manner to implement tailor-made customer solutions.


B&B – MAF GmbH & Co. KG continues to rely on a healthy mix of both innovation and tradition. After all, it is only through a wide range of experience and creative solution concepts that the positive growth of the medium-sized company can continue into the future.
