Company founder Otto Benninghoven.

The company Benninghoven was founded in 1909 in Hilden, Germany, by Otto Benninghoven and was set up to produce gear wheels and various machine tools.

In the 1950’s the company diversified into the field of industrial combustion technology.

The beginning of the 60’s was the entrance date into the asphalt industry with the first products being burners, dryers, bitumen systems and mastic asphalt equipment.

The continued demand for Benninghoven products made it necessary in 1970 to construct a new fabrication facility located in Mülheim/Mosel.

Another huge expansion took place in 1990 with the addition of a manufacturing plant in Wittlich to accommodate the ongoing growth of business. Today, the Benninghoven Group manufactures its products in two locations in Germany and one in England.

Still today, pioneering spirit and tradition, combinied with trend-setting technology and perfectly trained staff determine the Benninghoven group and guarantee constant innovatio nand customer oriented actions. Worldwide, over 700 employees care for the good reputation of Benninghoven products.
