About us

Our parent company, Alexanderwerk AG, was founded in 1885 by Alexander von der Nahmer and began by selling manually operated meat grinders. After his death, his three sons navigated the company through challenging times including global economic crisis’s and world wars and were able to turn Alexanderwerk into a household name with products ranging from bread slicers, graters, Christmas tree stands and scales.  Since then, the company has been continuously evolving to meet industry demands. Today, the Alexanderwerk Group is a leading manufacturer of high-technology compaction and granulation machines for the chemical, food, life science, nuclear and pharmaceutical industries. For decades, pharmaceutical and chemical companies all over the world have been using solutions supplied by Alexanderwerk.

After 125 years, Alexanderwerk is still driven by inquisitiveness and innovation, and it is these motivating forces that keep our technology moving forward in response to the ever-changing requirements in the industries we serve. Currently headquartered in Remscheid, Alexanderwerk AG, has a strong commitment to the North American market with our facility in Montgomeryville, PA.  This 17,000 square foot facility is staffed and equipped to handle lab testing, sales and service for our customers in America, Canada and Mexico. Committed to the full support of our customers, we offer extended services including lab testing, commissioning, training, calibration, preventative maintenance and repair services. Progress does not stand still and neither does Alexanderwerk.
