Company History

Loewer was founded in 1861 and has remained a family business up to the present day. Starting out as a forge, it then moved on to the manufacture of farm machinery and subsequently set up its own iron foundry. In the 1930´s, the company progressed into  woodworking machinery. The first sanding machine left the factory in 1960 and to date over 20,000 Loewer machines have been delivered worldwide.

Over the past decades, Loewer has accumulated a vast amount of expertise in sanding and grinding machinery. This is the key to new innovations and modern solutions. Together with our more experienced staff as well as our young team of engineers and  technicians, we strive to offer the best possible technical solution to each individual customer.

In 2011 we celebrated our 150th anniversary.
