A Little History

The Read Machinery Co., Inc. was founded in 1906 by Harry Read for the purpose of manufacturing vertical mixers and bakers’ machinery. With facilities located in Glen Rock, PA and another in southwest York – Read Machinery became one of the world’s largest manufacturers of bakery machinery. At its peak, Readco employed 190 people at its Glen Rock plant before losing it to fire in 1921.

 

Operations continued at the York, PA plant where over the years, Read Machinery would manufacture many different types of mixing equipment- including ribbon blenders, vertical mixers, Sigma blade batch mixers, pug mills, and pin mixers. In the 1920s the company expanded its product line to include process equipment for the chemical industry; specializing in pressure vessels, vacuum mixers and material handling equipment within their chemical division.

 

The creation of a chemical division allowed Read Machinery to gain entry into the United States war effort a decade later during the opening years of World War II. In 1938 Readco began work on mixers to be used for smokeless explosive powders. In that same year, Read Machinery was awarded the first ever private contract from the U.S. Army to manufacture 60mm. trench mortars and would later manufacture 105mm. high explosive shells.

 

We are not the Readco Mixer OEM, however  we do service their products.
