Your Solution to Size Reduction Equipment since 1834
In 1834 Nathan Stedman started Stedman with a unique method of reducing material size through what has become known today as the cage mill;
and in 1894, a U.S. patent (shown
right) was granted to Stedman Foundry and Machine Company for his invention. Since then, providing solutions for companies on how to reduce material size has become second nature to us.
Over the years, the
firm's growth found the machinery division's product line expanded to
include crushing, pulverizing, disintegrating, mixing and screening equipment
for the fertilizer, chemical, meat packing, crushed stone, sand and gravel,
glass, precious metals, clay processing, reclaim, recycle and wood industries.
Castings were manufactured for the machine tool, pump and valve, printing
press, cotton gin, blower, electric motor, power transmission and tool
and die equipment manufacturers.
Today, Stedman continues to focus exclusively on size reduction equipment, including rock crushing equipment, and work closely with our customers to determine the best, most cost-effective, efficient size reduction method and equipment for specific applications.
The Stedman Family
operated the business for three generations and in 1912, a group of three
Cincinnati, Ohio investors acquired the business.
On June 20, 1980, after 146 years of continuous
service, the foundry operations were halted. With the machinery
division now representing the firm's total activity, the organization
became known as Stedman Machine Company.
