B+R GmbH


In 1976 Heribert Bellinghausen and Willi Ringen founded the company Bellinghausen and Ringen OHG. It started with seven employees to manufacture moulds and machines for finishing plastic products. From 1988 the company name has changed to B+R Maschinenbau GmbH, the focus has now been on blow moulding technology and rationalization. In 1990 Heinrich Schild took over the general management and set the focus on engineering and building machines.

In 1999 following Heinrich Schild’s death Guido Schmitz took over as his successor. At this point B+R Maschinenbau GmbH had already employed 28 members of staff and still based in Oberpleis-Germany today, B+R has seen positive growth with now employing over 65 members of staff.
