Tradition and innovation

Sixty years ago, Eduard Küsters founded the "development department for textile machines" in Krefeld. With the invention of the deflection-controlled Swimming Roll (S-Roll) in 1956, the Küsters company established the benchmark in roll technology – and has since become a globally recognized specialist in calendering and finishing processes. Today ANDRITZ Küsters employs approximately 350 people in Germany, and the USA.

Investment in innovation

All ANDRITZ Küsters activities focus on developing customized concepts, systems, and machines to suit the production and quality requirements of the paper, board, nonwovens, and textile industries. Investing in research and development is a matter of course for ANDRITZ Küsters – not only in its own facilities, but also in close cooperation with leading institutes and universities. Before being installed in customer facilities, all technologies are meticulously tested in the company’s technical center in Krefeld to ensure smooth commissioning and reliable performance.
