Second-Hand Machines are a Matter of Trust - you can rely on us

Buying and selling second-hand machinery does require a lot of experience and quasi a sixth sense for technique. As a world-wide operating dealer of second-hand machinery and lines for the pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industry, companies of all sizes have confidence in us thanks to our long-standing business activities. Founded in 1984 by Johann Kirschenhofer, we now rank amongst the European market leaders in our sector. In the future we will also occur as “BMA Group”.

Co-operation Partners

In co-operation with Bischoff & Munneke GmbH, our German partner based in Hamburg, we predominantly buy machines and lines from big or medium-sized companies in Germany or Switzerland - countries with an extremely high maintenance level. The machines can/will either be overhauled in our workshops in Germany or Switzerland by engineers, qualified technicians or maintenance specialists or directly at the manufacturers, with whom we have good co-operations.

Used Machinery

Before we decide to acquire the machines on offer, we thoroughly examine them. The environment in which the machine or lines have been used will also play an important role/ will also be taken into consideration. It is this overall picture on which we base our decision. We need to be absolutely sure that we can resell the machines in all/good/ with a clear conscience. Thus our customers can rely on the fact that conditions of our machines are good to very good. Especially second-hand machines and lines of the pharmaceutical industry - which have been maintained and examined on a regular basis - can be operated successfully for many years.


Our technical expertise is not the only reason why you can trust us and our machinery. One of the crucial factors of our success is - last but not least - our international experience and knowledge of different cultures which we encounter during our world-wide business activities.

We do speak the most important languages of our customers e.g. German, English, Spanish and Russian. And we are acquainted with the different mentalities, not matter if we are in Central or East Europe, Asia or South America. For us it is essential that we precisely understand the requirements of our customers, and that the mutual communication is smooth and advantageous for both parties.

If you want to buy or sell a machine or line - we are your faithful partner!
