Urschel was founded in Valparaiso, Indiana, U.S.A., by William E. Urschel with his invention of the Gooseberry Snipper, a machine that removed the stems and blossoms from the then popular berry, and was widely sold to Michigan canneries. The machine could do the work of 100 workers a day.
Since 1910, Urschel has been designing and manufacturing precision industrial cutting machinery. From the invention of the Gooseberry Snipper to the development of the Comitrol®, TranSlicer®, and DiversaCut® series of machines, the focus has always been on finding innovative and efficient ways to improve customer productivity.
Urschel has developed a worldwide reputation for excellence by working in partnership with customers over the years to meet the ever-changing challenges in the marketplace. Increases in productivity, new products, energy-saving machinery, and cleaner, more precise cuts, are just a few ways Urschel has - and continues - to rise to the demands of this dynamic industry.
