Plastics and chemical processing equipment supplier Maag Reduction shipped its 1,000th pulverizer for creating polymer powders with defined particle size distributions.
The business started as Reduction Engineering Scheer Industries Inc. and the first pulverizer it made in 1994 is still in production with more than 175,000 hours logged.
Reduction Engineering was acquired by Maag Group in 2015. Maag Americas Vice President Martin Baumann called the shipment of the thousandth pulverizer a great achievement.
"This is a testament to the quality and value our pulverizers have brought to the hundreds of satisfied customers. Our team is committed to the product and eagerly looking forward to building the next thousand," Baumann said in a news release.
The pulverizers make powders used in rotomolding a wide range of products, from household goods and outdoor equipment to recycling containers.
"While we continue to innovate to improve the pulverizing process and reduce costs for our customers, we still focus on the reliability and performance that began with unit No. 1," Rommel Mayer-Rodriguez, GM of MAAG Reduction Inc., said in the release.
Maag officials said pulverizer sales have been strong since the pandemic and it has added production workers.
