»The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.« (Oscar Wilde)
»Niederrheinische Formenfabrik Gerh. Janssen & Sohn GmbH & Co. KG« is a family-owned manufacturer based in the Lower Rhine region of Krefeld since 1872. We produce high-quality pastry molding machines that structure and shape shortcrust pastries and efficiently process marzipan, Lebkuchen and Printen gingerbread doughs – all in keeping with our motto: »JANSSEN – shaping pleasure just the way you like«.
Our high-quality stainless steel pastry molding machines are built exclusively in our manufacturing plant in Krefeld – from the first construction sketch to the final surface finishing. Now in its fifth generation, Niederrheinische Formenfabrik Janssen continues to live the quality standard “Made in Germany”.
For customers with skilled labor and semi-industrial production processes, JANSSEN provides the machines of choice, capable of molding and shaping all types of cookies and continuous products in capacities ranging from 30 to 650 kg of dough per hour.
Our pastry molding machines feature molding rollers with various themes. We offer you a broad spectrum of classical shapes like Spekulatius (traditional German Christmas spiced almond biscuit figurines), ornamental shapes for fine shortcakes, pretzels, Kipferl (crescent-shaped biscuits), Husarenkrapfen (red jam-filled shortcrust cookies) or Linzer tortes. Thanks to the special expertise of our engraving workshop, we can create individually customized molding rollers for you with any theme you personally desire.
We are privileged to collaborate with customers from all over the world, whose pastry-shaping needs and ideas provide the inspiration for our daily work, while also informing every aspect of the design and advanced development of our products.
