1899 – Julius Sinnack, a master baker, founded the first Sinnack baking company in Bocholt, Germany. This was the beginning of an over 100-year story of success for the family-owned company. The bread was baked traditionally and delivered by horse-drawn carriage.
1907 – The vigorously expanding bakery moves into larger facilities and is entered into the commercial register as »Bocholt Bread Factory«.
1920-1930 – The company experiences its first period of prosperity. An additional new oven is put into operation. Julius Hermann Sinnack, son of the company founder, begins his apprenticeship in the business.
1942 – After the death of Julius Sinnack, his wife, Anna Sinnack, ran the company together with master baker Josef von Ackern until Julius Hermann Sinnack returned from the war in 1945 and took over the business.
1945 – Sinnack begins provisory production in June.
1950 – The company profits from the economic boom of the 1950’s and expands. Innovation remains the driving force. Julius Hermann Sinnack, based on his own ideas, creates a revolutionary steam baking facility and adds a new oven that doubles the production of brown bread. By the end of the 1950’s, the new factory on Biemenhorster Weg, in Bocholt, opens for production.
1968 – Unexpectedly, the father of the current owner Julius Peter Sinnack dies.
1970 – The current owner, Julius Peter Sinnack, takes over the business at the age of 19.
1978 – Competition in the bakery market forces the company to react - once again with innovation. Julius Peter Sinnack introduces the first part-baked baguettes to the German market, which becomes a great success.
1979 – The first Sinnack wheat rolls - which are still a classic - are baked. The assortment is continually adapted and expanded to meet market demands.
1983 – Production is completely converted towards part-baked goods.
1994 – In 1994, the new production facility in Droßdorf, Saxony-Anhalt, is opened for production. Through this investment, additional 100 people could be employed.
1995 – The production facility in Biemenhorst, which was the headquarters of the company, is completely destroyed by fire. The catastrophe is seen as a new chance; the rebuilding of the company takes place in the Bocholt Industrial Park where production reopens in less than 6 months.
1997 – 1999 – Production is continually expanded.
2002 – Sinnack expands and renews. A new building sets the foundation for additional mega baking facilities that take up production within the shortest time. Sinnack is one of the most modern and efficient major bakeries in Germany and is the first manufacturer of baked goods in Germany that is certified on the norms of the International Food Standard (IFS).
2006 – All Sinnack production facilities have achieved IFS certification of the highest standard. Real estate across the head office in Bocholt is being acquired for expansion.
2007 – Construction of the new Sinnack Logistics-Centre in Bocholt.
2008 – In Bocholt, a new production line for toast rolls is put into operation. A good decision: The same year the Sinnack Toast Rolls receive the "Product of the Year" award.
2009 – Comprehensive investments are being made. Further production lines for different products are put into operation. The production lines in Bocholt and Gutenborn Droßdorf are expanded extensively.
2011 – Sinnack „Our Best“ are being tested by Stiftung Warentest in February – they receive the grade „good“, which makes them the best non-refrigerated part-baked rolls in the test. This achievement results in new orders from Germany and European countries. In addition a new production line for stone-baked products is put into operation in Bocholt.
