tim plast history
It all began over 50 years ago, when André TAUPIN, a miller from Nevers, applied a patent for a flexible spiral conveyor to transport wheat in mills and farming co-operatives. The English company LUNDELL, an affiliate of the American John Deere group, was assigned for the distribution in these branches in England under the name of Snauger. The utilization of this device for storage and transport of flour in mills and also bakeries, which step by step migrated to the transport of bulk goods, was later assigned to the French company TOPRAC . TRANSITUBE started it’s activities in 1961 and closed a cooperation treaty with André TAUPIN to further develop the spiral conveyor and other inventions for industrial sectors worldwide. Over time the spiral conveyor became “a TRANSITUBE” amongst those who used them. This name is still often used facing other producers of spiral conveyors.
In 1970 the German subsidiary TRANSITUBE GmbH was founded in Düsseldorf. Soon Mr. Michel Gelin took over the management, which he held until he retired in 2009 and who sure is remembered by many customers.
1997 the company changed it’s name to “tim plast”, but being the sole distributor for the brand “transitube®” did not change.
First there were plans to just specialize in the plastics industry, but this thought was abandoned due the extensive needs and demands of our customers.
“tim plast Anlagenbau GmbH” still serves all their German customers, regardless of their industry affiliation.
