This firm was founded in 1852. In their early days they built steam engines and sawmill machinery. In 1870 the company studied the problem of creating splints for lighting street lamps, and as a result they developed the first practical rotary veneer lathe. Machinery for veneer production quickly became the company's specialty, and that focus continues to this day.
