About us

Extracting air, adding value.

At Henkelman, we believe that healthy operations and a healthy planet go together perfectly. We help companies in hospitality, retail and (non-)food all over the world work more efficiently with top-quality vacuum packing machines. This immediately provides them with a powerful solution to combat food waste. So smarter packaging, storage and preparation with Henkelman has an immediate positive impact on your business and the world around you. That is what we call Ingenious Vacuum Packing. 

You are always right with a Henkelman

And we're not just talking about our machines. Because at Henkelman, it's all about good advice, support and service. But also about fast delivery times, extensive warranty and food safety. All guaranteed by a family business that is committed to the world of tomorrow. And which has also been helping its customers make a difference every day for 30 years. Through our service-oriented organisation and together with our global dealer network, of course. 

People-oriented organisation

At Henkelman, we have an eye for another. For customers, colleagues and the people around us. For us, sound business practice also lies in hiring all kinds of people with different talents. Because we think it is extremely important that everyone can participate in our society. That's what we call social entrepreneurship. Our workshop therefore also employs people with a distance to the labour market. We offer them the opportunity to work on their careers in peace and concentration, under supervision. Together we are Henkelman. 

Working at Henkelman

At Henkelman, we enjoy a rich history with a promising future. We have become and will remain so by approaching our business with the necessary common sense. After all, we owe our position as a market leader in chamber vacuum machines to the people who work for us. Without them, no success. Within our walls, therefore, there is a culture where everyone is encouraged to take initiative, grow personally and develop themselves. With plenty of opportunities to make your own mark on our success. Because, as a family business, we are flexible, allowing us to make quick decisions and continuously adapt to changing global market conditions. This keeps us on our toes, but also connected to each other. Whether someone works for us locally or internationally; Henkelman offers a close-knit club of employees and customers who feel valued and part of our family.
