Who Invented the Cage Mill?

The Stedman Machine Company was established in 1834 in Southeastern, Indiana by Nathan R. Stedman. Stedman began by producing castings and machinery for anything from cotton gins, farm equipment, machine tools, and hay presses, to stoves and sawmills.

Today Stedman, an affiliate of Eagle Crusher Company, designs, manufactures, and sells a complete line of size-reduction equipment serving multiple markets. From equipment selection to maintenance requirements, Stedman has people with experience and deep understanding of the practical application of the complete size-reduction processes. Stedman Machine Company has the people and the experience to make your operation a success.

In 2002, Stedman Machine Company opened an affiliate company, Innovative Processing Solutions, to design, build, and install bulk handling and crushing systems in conjunction with Stedman equipment. This service helps you successfully install Stedman crushers into your process.
