Munson has survived numerous economic downturns, a civil war, two world wars, and multiple pandemics.

2023 marks 200 years in business for Munson Machinery. Founded by Alfred Munson, A. Munson & Company began manufacturing grain milling machines, flour bolters, grinding supplies, and waterpower equipment, and was the first US company to manufacture French buhr millstones.

Later known as the Munson Brothers Co. when brother Samuel joined the firm, then as Munson Mill Machinery Co., and ultimately as Munson Machinery Co., the firm has grown into a leading manufacturer of batch and continuous mixing, blending, and size reduction equipment for powders and bulk solids, pastes, and slurries across all industries.

“It's rare for a company to celebrate 200 years, so we are enormously thankful for the ingenuity, work ethic, and skill of our predecessors and of current personnel who brought us to this milestone," said Munson president, Charlie Divine. "Long-term vision, sound fiscal management, and bullet-proof machinery have seen Munson through numerous economic downturns, a civil war, two world wars, and multiple pandemics."

Engineering innovations underpin the company's products today as they have from the onset. "Numerous patented advances have set Munson apart from others who have come and gone over the years," explained Divine. “And while some long-lived companies fear change, we at Munson embrace it, demonstrating how a company hundreds of years old can also stay at the cutting edge of technology."
