Originally founded in 1964 as Polymer Machinery, Hosokawa Polymer Systems remains an industry leader and recognized innovator in the field of plastics recycling and repurposing. This company has a rich history in the plastics industry:
- They first designed the press side, auger feed, and scissor-cutting granulators, which help reduce bottlenecks and increase automation.
- They built the 400 HP model granulator, which was the largest granulating machine in the United States at the time.
- Under a division called Polymer Systems, they introduced dedusting systems to reduce the plastic dusts that often cause imperfections and defects in final products.
It was Polymer Systems that was eventually purchased and repurposed into the current company: Hosokawa Polymer Systems. Under the umbrella of Hosokawa Micron International, the company has continued their innovation with the Alpine CL series, Shurfeed heavy-duty granulators, PET and LDPE washing systems, and heavy-duty single- and twin-shaft shredders.
