Company History Munk + Schmitz

Traditional company with a century of experience

In 1880 Josef Munk and Matthias Schmitz founded the “Offene Handelsgesellschaft Munk & Schmitz”. The production consisted mainly of building ornaments and beer fittings as well as gas and water pipe articles.

Munk + Schmitz 1898

In 1918 the company moved to a larger site and built a new factory, which included a boiler shop, coppersmith’s shop, aluminium shop, sheet metal welding shop and machine factory. Starting in 1926, beverage tanks with the innovative Emaillit® interior lining were introduced to the market.

Munk + Schmitz 1940

In the 1960s, the triumphal march of the steel tanks lined with Munkadur® for beer, wine and sparkling wine production began. At the same time, the division for the production of sandblasting systems was established.

Munk + Schmitz 1968

Subsequently, Munkadur® coatings have been continuously improved in compliance with the applicable food regulations. The same applies to compressed air blasting systems, in which Munk + Schmitz holds a leading position worldwide, particularly in the field of dust-free Problast® blasting systems.
