Starting in a garage, DIENST Packsystems has now established itself as the leading manufacturer of packaging machines.

Gelling and crumble machines, conveyor technology, freezer inlets and outlets – the company "Sondermaschinen Dienst" was founded on October 11th, 1988 with the manufacture of machines for the production of baked goods. Back then, Walter Dienst and a locksmith started out in a rented hall, no bigger than a garage. His wife Sigrid "Siggi" helped with the orders and preparation of offers. This 3-person company has now grown into a successful company that employs more than 100 people.

In 1990 a customer added a new packaging line to its production. Dienst also receives the order to bring three old cartoners up to date. It is the starting shot for the construction of its own packaging machines. The next big step followed in summer of 1991 with the topping-out ceremony in Hochheim. The new conveyor was a huge success at the beginning of the 90s, with up to 100 products per minute, delivering incredibly fast packaging performance. Today Dienst packs pizzas, powdered milk and many other food and non-food products.

Relocation to Hofheim near Frankfurt
Dienst has been part of the POLAR Group in Hofheim near Frankfurt since 2011. The factory hall in Hochheim became too small, the rental contract for the extra hall also expired, so the joint management decided to move to the POLAR-Mohr factory premises. Plant 20 starts operations in 2019. Moving to Hofheim was an important step for DIENST in order to continue growing and positioning itself internationally.

33 years is not a typical number for an anniversary. It is in fact particularly important because the entire POLAR Group, to which Dienst now belongs, can celebrate anniversaries: 115 years of POLAR Mohr, 15 years of PPM in China and 33 for DIENST.
