Who we are

From talented machine makers to dedicated plant designers


Lachenmeier Monsun

Much has happened since Christian Lachenmeier established Lachenmeier Maskinfabrik back in 1952. From the very beginning, the company specialized in building and supplying bulk material handling solutions for the grain and feed industry with grain dryers and conveyors. Later, more industries followed, and when the first wood pellet factories were built in the beginning of this century, Lachenmeier Monsun designed the conveyors.

Today, the biomass fuel and grain & feed industries are still important to Lachenmeier Monsun. But we have changed our focus from selling machinery to designing solutions. Our dedicated designers and project managers are specialized in creating tailormade bulk material handling systems to meet the specific needs and available workspace of each of our customers.

At Lachenmeier Monsun, we have a major part of our value chain inhouse. That means a lot to us. We are almost independent of other suppliers and therefore much more in control of our supply chain. In 2020, we bought PAM A/S – an innovative bulk material handling factory specialized in the production of rotary valves, screw conveyors and solutions for pneumatic transport. PAM is situated in Odense and have modern production facilities and a strong engineering department.


Our mission & vision

Our mission is to ensure our customers and partners clever and optimal solutions within handling bulk goods and drying of grain products.

  • We want to be a high-end supplier of machinery and plants within bio fuel as well as grain and feed
  • We want to be a first-class project company with a strong technical approach.
  • We want to possess the ability to convincingly implement projects with a strong focus on progress, profitability, punctuality and quality.
  • We want to be an attractive workplace with a good working environment, that attracts the best fitters, most skilled employees within production and logistics, the sharpest project managers, the most experienced designers and solutions-orientated salesmen.

About Peter

Peter is the new captain of service and drones

Peter started in Lachenmeier Monsun in 2021, and after a couple of months under the wings of our experienced service manager Bent, he took over the job as manager. He understands he has some big shoes to fill. But Peter comes with more than 7 years of experience within service from other companies, and therefore he also brings new inspiration into the ways of doing service.

“I am a strong advocate for putting service into tailormade concepts for each customer depending on their specific needs,” he says. Peter is also Lachenmeier Monsun’s very first drone captain. He uses the drone to make visual inspections of plants, which saves the customer both time, money and the hazzle of hiring a lift.

About Esben

The father of many of our products

Esben is our senior engineer and head of development. Not only has he been in the company since 1982, he has also designed and redesigned a lot of the products in our existing portfolio – like the Mega dryer and our dust filters. Esben has always been ahead of development. Even though the environmental and safety requirements for the products have become a lot stricter since Esben studied Mechanical Engineering, he has always succeeded in designing products, which met the changing requirements for many years.

Today, Esben is involved in most of Lachenmeier Monsun’s major projects due to this in-dept knowledge about plant function, legal requirements and explosion hazard. No bulk material handling equipment leave Lachenmeier Monsune without Essben's approval, and he is often asked for advice in various projects. During the years, Esben has run many tests on projects and products, and his experienced eyes are indispensable when predicting and solving potential problems in the process flow.

About Jørgen

Jørgen visualizes and realizes the
customer’s need

Jørgen was our first Project Manager to see and learn the advantage of digital designing back in the 1990s, and he is still one of the fastest to draw a detailed overview to visualize the need of the customer. Hence, the customer often meets Jørgen quite early in the cooperation. Besides being an expert in visualizing the needs of the customers, he is also an expert in asking all the questions, no one else thought about. And this saves a lot of time and later changes. As do correct measurements. Jørgen is very thorough and often spends hours to get the accurate measurements needed to get a perfect start on the project.

Since 2009, when Lachenmeier Monsun was involved in rebuilding the first power plant to run on wood pellets instead of coal, Jørgen has been working with various projects within both the energy and food & grain industry. This includes one of our biggest projects; Building a storage and transport system for the Studstrup power plant. The project lasted 4 years from the first drawing to the finished project, and Jørgen was running the project all the way.
