The family-owned German company NETZSCH is celebrating 50 years in business.

A manufacturer of machinery and instrumentation, the company began its North America operations as a one-person office 50 years ago, having grown to more than 180 employees today.

“Fifty years ago, we were a very well-known and reputable machine and pump manufacturer in Germany, when we took a leap overseas to the North American market,” said Thomas Streubel, president of NETZSCH Pumps North America. “At that time the world was not nearly as connected as it is today and it was a major endeavour to deal with the challenges of building a company on another continent. It’s been a wonderful adventure and I am proud to celebrate our achievement with our entire team.”

NETZSCH will mark the milestone year with a gala celebration on May 11, at the historic SunnyBrook Ballroom in Pottstown, Penn.

The company has continued to serve its initial customers in wastewater, chemical, food, and paper industries, while assisting with the transition of energy production by supplying pumps for the biogas, bio refinery, and battery markets.  It also has considerable expertise with pumps used for enhanced oil recovery production and produced water treatment, as well as sanitary pumps and highly efficient drum unloading systems.
