The story of our company begins in 1856. Originally established as an iron foundry by Anton Heinen, when it was known as “Heinen’s Fabrik,” the name Heinen has stood for reliable technology and solid machinery ever since.
Almost 130 years later, Heinen entered a joint venture in 1982 for the manufacturing of spiral freezers. In 1984, we began designing and manufacturing the machines on our own on the company premises in Varel.
Since 2010, the company has operated under the name Heinen Freezing GmbH & Co. KG and meanwhile has left its humble beginnings behind to become the market leader for spiral systems.
