Our high-quality cookie moulding machines made of stainless steel are fabricated exclusively in our factory in Krefeld – from the first design sketch to the final surface finishing – and the quality claim “Made in Germany” is now being lived out in the 5th generation at the Janssen company.

Customers with craftsman’s and semi-industrial production facilities use our cookie moulding machines which provide capacities for small cookies and endless products of from 30 to 650 kg of dough per hour.

»Small cookies – large variety«

Our cookie moulding machines use pattern rollers with many different motifs. We offer a broad spectrum of traditional moulds, such as for speculaas biscuits, ornamented moulds for fine tea biscuits, pretzels, crescents, jam filled biscuits or Linzer biscuits. The exceptional expertise of our engraving shop also enables us to offer custom rollers which implement your personal motifs.

The inspiration for our work comes from collaboration with customers from all over the world whose needs and ideas concerning “cookie moulds” form the ideal basis for the conception and further development of our products.

The marketing of our products in Germany is conducted directly by Niederrheinische Formenfabrik Janssen GmbH.
