About us

Initially founded in 1984 as a container service, the consistent expansion of the business fields and the constant expansion as a waste disposal and recycling company led to the first relocation of Kockmann GmbH to the "Ochtrup Ost" industrial estate in 1996.

With the certification as a specialised waste management company in 2000 (in accordance with the German Waste Management Ordinance - EfbV), Kockmann GmbH acquires a seal of approval in accordance with a standardised national procedure, which confirms the quality and traceability of the selected disposal routes.

The expansion of the company premises in 2005 and the acquisition and establishment of new companies form the basis for the expansion of the range of services and products.

Since 2006, Kockmann GmbH has been supporting the municipalities of Ochtrup and Metelen as a collection centre for waste electrical and electronic equipment.

Köllmann Transporte GmbH (acquired in 2002), the container service and waste disposal company Dankbar (acquired in 2003), Energenta Ersatzbrennstoffe GmbH (founded in 2004) and Emrec GmbH, which was acquired in 2007 and is based in Dortmund, were merged into the group of companies or joined it as partners.

The second relocation to the current headquarters in the "Weinerpark" industrial estate in Ochtrup took place in 2011.

In 2019, the new recycling centre in Steinfurt at Carl-Benz-Straße 13 was put into operation.

Today, Kockmann GmbH operates several recycling facilities authorised under the German Federal Immission Control Act on an area of around 150,000 m².

As a medium-sized, owner-managed company, we currently employ over 90 people at our two sites, many of whom have been with the company for many years.
