Marburg Brothers, Inc., of New York City, was active from about 1918 to the 1960s. They seem to have been primarily an importer of European machines—mainly German machines—but they also made, or sold, vertical milling machines badged, "Holland / Fitchburg, Mass." These machines may be of American manufacture.

    Holland Vertical Milling Machine—The illustration shows the Holland Vertical Milling Machine for milling, drilling, and boring operations which has been brought out by Marburg Brothers, Inc., 90 West St., New York, N. Y. The machine is adapted for use on tools, dies, molds and production work. High spindle speeds and rigid construction are said to assure smooth finish and accurate work. As the operator usually sits while producing the fine work for which this machine is especially suited, the table remains at a fixed height, and the table screws are within convenient reach for use simultaneously.
