Com­pany history

OSTERWALDER AG is a Swiss com­pany with more than 100 years of tra­di­tion in press con­s­truc­tion, and as a result is today the tech­no­logy and mar­ket lea­der. Since 1990, we have con­cen­tra­ted our acti­vi­ties only on pow­der press technology. 

Due to this pro­found expe­ri­ence, we have com­pre­hen­sive know-how in all areas of pow­der pres­sing tech­no­logy and are able to serve almost any cus­to­mer requi­re­ment fle­xi­bly and quickly.

We are proud to offer our pres­ses with Pas­sion and hig­hest qua­lity to manu­fac­ture. Learn more about the history of Oster­wal­der AG.
