SINCE 1950

Founded in 1950 in Amersfoort (NL) the company expanded very quickly and soon opened a second production plant in Assen (NL). In 1996 the plant in Assen became the headoffice. In 1991 and 1992 Animo opened own sales offices with warehouse in Belgium, Germany and France.

The unique strength of Animo lies in its versatility, offering self-service or automatic coffee machines, plus the ability to provide a machine for any situation. The Animo range covers all types of coffee and tea machines, serving trolleys, food and beverage containers, water heaters and beverage heaters.


ANIMO was founded on 10 December 1950 and has a long history. In 1950 founder L. Scheepstra started selling coffee making systems and supplies on a small scale in a shop in Amersfoort.

Following a succesful start, Animo rapidly expanded. In 1962 a second branch was opened in Assen to ensure that the wide range of products could continue to be produced for an increasing number of customers in more and more countries. Like Germany, for example, from where the first orders came pouring in.
