This is Hastamat

The packaging expert

As a leading manufacturer of packaging machinery and equipment, there are three things that separate us from the rest: creativity, innovation, and decades-long experience. And these things are in demand – worldwide. That’s why we have a sales network around the globe. But we manufacture our machines and systems in Germany. We also rely on modern and efficient production methods. As well as on comprehensive quality management. All of this forms the basis of our machines and systems, which are technically sophisticated, economical, and of the highest quality.

We package your product

Feeding, weighing, packaging: this is what our complete systems are designed to do. Especially with stick products that are fragile to handle, such as pretzels, cookies, and chocolate. But also cheese or salami sticks. Weighing and filling stacked chips to the exact number is also a snap for our packaging systems. No matter whether it’s in cans, with or without tray. Our machines can handle almost any type of packaging for you. Gently, sustainably, and precisely. Oh yes – we also devise solutions for special requirements. This could be for feeding, weighing, and discharging sticky dates in hygienic design. Or it could be for the entire packaging process for snack products. We’re no stranger to special designs and custom packaging solutions.

Our packaging machines

No matter whether your product is to be packed by weight or volume, upright or stacked, individually or mixed and packed in bags, cans, or trays – our machines and systems take care of it. Reliably, efficiently, and gently. For round, square, and stick products alike. For food, non-food, and pet food. To the exact weight and number. And always to perfection. We also tailor our packaging technology to your individual needs. In close cooperation with you. So that cookies, stacked chips, frozen and fresh foods, powders and the like are perfectly weighed, metered, counted, stacked, and distributed – to finally come out in the best packaging in the world: yours.

To our history

Strong cooperation

Hastamat, LoeschPack and Planol – these are the subsidiaries of building services contractor Piepenbrock. Together, they form the Piepenbrock Group. Something else that unites them: they share a common goal – optimal solutions, properly tailored to the needs and requirements of customers.


LoeschPack has a strong reputation for excellent packaging machines and complete systems. Especially those for chewing gum, chocolate, and dry baked goods. The company develops and manufactures these machines itself. And offers a full service to go along with them. No wonder it’s a leading international company.


Planol manufactures a wide range of cleaning chemicals. For different requirements in cleaning and care as well as for the maintenance of buildings and facilities. For specialist wholesalers, bulk buyers and resellers, this is a clean business.

Another strength of the Group: close cooperation. Thanks to the lively exchange between the various specialist areas, valuable synergies are created.
