… the more intelligent solution

Coesfeld Materialtest sees itself as a solution provider. We develop our test devices from mechanical construction to device control and software. Our individual or small series production allows us to respond to your individual test requirements. We offer standardized test solutions in accordance with relevant test standards (DIN, ISO, EN, ASTM, ...) and are just as happy to cater to your individual requirements. Special test devices or tailored automation solutions have been an important part of our activity since our company foundation. The customer is in our focus. Our goal ... the more intelligent solution!


For more than 50 years we stand for customer orientation and consistency. In 1968 our company was founded by Adolf Coesfeld as a service provider for maintenance and repair of temperature control devices. The market for special customer requirements was quickly recognized and a production facility for individual customer solutions was set up. A product portfolio of own products and trading products gradually developed from this. Today our company is still in family hands and run in it’s third generation. The business is divided into our production of standard products and our project business for custom-made products. In 2013 we founded our subsidiary PRL - Polymer Research Lab to independently offer contract measurements and services for material development.
