Our history is full of many important milestones that shaped who we are today. Allow us to take you on a journey that began with the founding of Emmericher Maschinenfabrik. It shows how the drive and pioneering spirit of our three founding fathers grew into a global company that has evolved into the market and technology leader over four generations.

This basic principle of a drum that rotates along a horizontal axis still remains the most common method of slow-roasting coffee in use today.
