A 100-year legacy of quality and value

100 years of specialism 

Messmer Büchel was founded in 1924 in the Netherlands, back then Büchel made testing machines for the paper industry. Throughout the years we have been leaders in the development of new and improved laboratory testing methods and instrumentation. We remain pioneers in our markets, constantly striving to manufacture better, more efficient, and more reliable instruments.    Since our incorporation into Industrial Physics, in 2015, we have expanded our relevance to markets including corrugated, flexible and rigid packaging materials through our synergy with our sister equipment brands Testing Machines, Ray-Ran and United Testing Systems.   We have become a true resource for almost all physical testing requirements across the world of paper-based and plastics-based packaging materials.

Design from the inside out

Our instrument development process begins with a careful review and comparison of materials and components. High quality components ensure the long lifetime of our instruments. Accuracy and the expected availability are key elements. Close collaboration and involvement with our customers and with the testing standards organizations (ISO, SCAN, TAPPI, ASTM, etc.) ensures that we remain current and forward-looking in the continuous development of our equipment to meet or exceed all relevant testing requirements. Our in-house team of mechanical, electrical and software engineers are highly capable of taking a project from the initial concept stage all the way through design. That is taking care of quality and value the Messmer Büchel way.

Local support

Support is more than simply resolving issues when they arise. Support is also fast response, clear communications and easy processes for the customer to receive the support they need. One of the key elements in support is having local presence. Currently we cover 39 countries with support through combinations of our own direct service staff and trained local representatives. These same resources are highly consultative and can also advise you which instruments or accessories may be required for your applications needs. Contact us for your local representative.
