About Urschel

 

As the global leader in food cutting technology, Urschel continues to lead the world in the manufacturing and selling of commercial cutting equipment to the food processing and allied industries. The company continues to expand around the globe to grow alongside this ever-changing, dynamic industry, while maintaining its headquarters and manufacturing facility in northwest Indiana, centrally located in the heart of the United States.

 
 
THE URSCHEL MODEL CC POTATO
CHIP SLICER CONTINUES TO BE THE  GLOBAL INDUSTRY STANDARD.

Consumers purchase goods manufactured on Urschel cutting equipment on a daily basis – from canned soups and vegetables to ingredients in frozen and ready meals, fresh-cut bags of lettuce, bags of potato chips, pet foods, sauces, condiments, nut milks, baby foods, nut butters, tiny dices of fruits in yogurts, candy granulations in ice cream, and much more. All types of ingredients need to be reduced to become consumer goods, and that is at the core of Urschel’s success – working with processors through different challenges to assist them in creating better products.

Increases in productivity, energy-saving machinery, cleaner, more precise cuts, and developing new cut shapes, are just a few ways Urschel continues to rise to the demands of this dynamic industry. Throughout its 100-plus year history, Urschel has built on continuous research and development in determining the most innovative cutting methods combined with leading-edge manufacturing practices, and that is why we have retained ‘Laboratories’ as part of our company name.
