Headquartered in Emmerich am Rhein, Germany, the PROBAT group is a global supplier of machines, plants and control technology solutions for the coffee and cocoa / chocolate industries. While our production, distribution and service centers circle the globe, our German headquarters houses the cornerstones of our coffee segment — research, development and design — and produces the majority of PROBAT machines and plants.
We run production facilities at sites belonging to our subsidiaries as well: Bauermeister (Germany), PROBAT Burns (USA) and PROBAT Leogap (Brazil). Our North and South American subsidiaries manufacture machines and plants for their local markets, and serve as regional distribution and service centers. The PROBAT Group also provides first-class customer care from our three distribution and service centers around the world: Brugger (Italy), PROBAT Asia (Philippines) and PROBAT Kaapi (India).
Our cocoa / chocolate division, the newly created Hamburg Dresdner Maschinenfabrik, is the only supplier in the world able to facilitate the entire process chain, from cocoa beans to the finished bar of chocolate. Formed following the integration with the Ladco Group (Scotland), our cocoa / chocolate division also has production facilities operated by Petzholdt-Heidenauer (Germany) and MacIntyre (Scotland).
