MAAG Reduction Celebrates the Production of 1000th Pulverizer Machine

April 15, 2021 marked a prominent milestone for MAAG Reduction, part of Dover Corporation and a global provider of plastics and chemical processing equipment, as it shipped its 1000th Pulverizer. Reduction Engineering, acquired by MAAG Group a few years ago, started production of pulverizers in 1994 at its location in Kent, OH. Pulverizers are used throughout the plastics industry to create polymer powders with a highly defined particle size distribution. These powders are commonly used in rotomolding. Pulverized plastics are used to manufacture a wide range of products from household goods and outdoor equipment to recycling containers.

“This milestone is a great achievement for our MAAG Reduction team,” said Martin Baumann, VP MAAG Americas. “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.”

“While we are celebrating the installation of our 1000th Pulverizer, the #1 unit from 1994 is still in production with more than 175,000 production hours,” added Rommel Mayer-Rodriguez, GM of MAAG Reduction, Inc. “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 #1.”

According to the MAAG Pulverizer Business Lead, the pandemic did not slow pulverizer sales, but on the contrary, the MAAG Reduction production facility in Kent has added more people to the team to meet production needs.
