Krauss-Maffei Corporation, the US subsidiary of the KraussMaffei Group with headquarters in Florence, Kentucky, celebrated its 50th anniversary on May 18 and 19 with more than 400 customers. The company has grown continuously since it was founded in 1966 and has established itself as a leading provider of machinery for plastics and rubber processing in the North American market. It currently represents the three brands: KraussMaffei, KraussMaffei Berstorff and Netstal. Following a successful financial year in 2015, Krauss-Maffei Corporation expects further growth in 2016.
Krauss-Maffei Corporation was founded in New York in 1966. Its market acceptance rose in 1977 when the company opened an extrusion systems plant in Wichita, Kansas, and accelerated the sale of products on the US market. This included single and twin-screw extruders for machines and systems in pipe extrusion (polyolefin and PVC) and profile extrusion. The 50th anniversary Open House celebration, held May 18 to 19, was a tremendous success, with a turnout of over 400 at the company’s US headquarters in Florence, Kentucky. The event showcased a wide range of trendsetting applications with live demonstrations of injection moulding, extrusion and reaction process machinery, including a Netstal injection compression moulding cell and the new ZE 65 Blue Power twin screw extruder. The Open House also featured 50 table top displays highlighting additional technology and service offerings from partners, as well as over 20 educational technical paper presentations covering the latest productivity enhancements for customers.
