Bischoff & Munneke GmbH celebrates its 25 year jubilee. The company marks the occasion by offering attractive discounts to its longstanding clients: a token of thanks for many years of co-operation and mutual trust in the trading of used machines and plant.


In a joint venture with Luxner Spezialmaschinen, Bischoff & Munneke GmbH presents a state-of-the-art tablet press, produced especially for galenics or pharmaceutical development at the pharmaceutical trade fair Achema 2003.


1999: The warehouse

Bischoff & Munneke GmbH greatly expands its business. Significant increase particularly in the trade of used pharmaceutics machines and/or used pharmaceutical machines necessitates the acquisition of the warehouses the company had previously rented. The company also renovates and utilizes formerly unused spaces.
