AMANDUS KAHL is a medium-sized family-owned company managed by its proprietors. It was founded in 1876 as a manufacturer of mills and pelleting presses. Today, we look back on more than 125 years of machine and plant construction.

Around 1920, the extrusion press was designed, patented, and sold worldwide. In 1920, the first pelleting press was delivered - the forerunner of the flat die pelleting press which has been constantly improved to this day.

The company has made many important inventions with registered patents. Our motivation has always been to find an even better technical solution for our customers. The main machines and plant components are produced in our central factory at Reinbek near Hamburg which has been certified acc. to DIN EN ISO 9001.

Research, design, development, and synergies with research establishments, institutes, universities as well as our international customers are essential functions of our company. We attach great importance to service. Our services include a pilot plant for tests with customer products, a net of engineers as well as business establishments and representations world-wide.
