Just like the coffee industry, the chocolate sector is all about taste and pleasure.

For many years, PROBAT has also produced roasters for cocoa processing. The company Hamburg Dresdner Maschinenfabriken (HDM) was founded ten years ago after the acquisition of Petzholdt-Heidenauer Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH in Dresden, Germany and Macintyre Chocolate Systems in Arbroath, Scotland. Based in Dresden, the company’s machines and systems cover the entire value creation chain for cocoa and chocolate processing.

In just a few years, HDM has developed an outstanding reputation in the industry. It has experienced particular success in areas where customers have specific needs that call for tailored solutions.

While PROBAT’s size and reputation form the perfect basis for HDM, they also yield a great obligation for all group employees who are truly committed.
