From Tradition and experience

In 1934, Hugo and Katharina Müller founded the company. The plastics industry was still in its infancy and pioneering spirit was required. Packaging for the local dental drill industry as hygienic substitute for wood packaging used until then, were the beginning. Production started with hand-operated piston injection moulding machines.

In the following years, the new malleable synthetic substance became more and more successful showing many material advantages, too. The manufacture of plastic products in only one production process replaced materials difficult to process such as wood, metal and glass. The electrically non-conducting material had advantages in weight and was resistant to water and many chemical influences.

It offered many options for the design regarding colour and surface and was printable, too. H&K Müller kept up in a rapidly growing market and was led to its current market position under the direction of Richard Müller in the second half of the 20th century. Our customers benefit for decades from the extensive experience in the processing of different thermoplastic materials and the production of complex injection moulds in our own tooling. They get products from one single source starting from development and design to tooling, injection moulding processing up to the packed finished part.

Ahead of its time for generations

With the establishment in 1934 H&K Müller is one of the first plastics processors in Germany. The privately held company in the third generation continuously developed further. New machines, materials and technical procedures were tested and integrated into the manufacturing process.

The permanent focus on technical progress led not only to the use of commercially available technology but also to the conception and construction of own machinery, equipment and devices. According to the needs, they increase the efficiency of production.

The steady growth of the business was accompanied by an increasing need for space that finally required a complete rebuilding of the manufacturing facility in Engelskirchen.
