Company history

100 years of history

Many things have evolved over the past few years. One thing, however, has remained until today. Our daily actions in dialog with our customers with principles such as partnership, quality, efficiency, innovation and sustainability were concise then and will continue to determine our actions in the future.

100 years Zuther – Quality by tradition!

Today company Zuther is one of the leading suppliers of bulk material technology!

Company Zuther has developed into a modern industrial company, which stands out from others by combining tradition and modernity. As a medium-sized family business, Zuther not only has a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, but is also one of the leaders in the industry in the field of digitalization. In addition to a newly introduced EDP system, Zuther was also engaged in the development of digital products for its customers.

The continuation in the now fourth generation was also secured by the entry of the two sons, from the managing owner Andreas Zuther, Jannik and Jonas Zuther, in 2014 and 2019 respectively.

Zuther technology proves itself every day all over the world under the most difficult operating conditions.

In recent years, Zuther has developed into one of the established suppliers of bulk solids technology. With great commitment Zuther was able to win further markets. Due to the high quality of the products, Zuther succeeded in gaining market shares in the field of stones and soils and in the industry. Today Zuther operates internationally and in many countries.

Since 2014, Andreas Zuther has taken over the entire management and successfully leads the fortunes of the company.

Thanks to a highly qualified team of employees, modern production and the sum total of our experience gained over almost 100 years, Zuther developed into one of the leading suppliers in the field of bulk solids technology. Due to the increasing demand, production capacities were expanded to include two new large production halls. The company also invested continuously in its machinery. Meanwhile, Zuther no longer operates only in the national market, but has also gained international sales territories.

In the 70’s and 80’s, the manufacturing area was modernized by using new machines and expanding the manufacturing premises, and the product range was extended to include special machine construction and bulk handling for other products. The technical area was also extended, so that also with this know-how the delivery of turnkey silo and handling plants for various bulk materials was possible.
In 1988, Mr. Horst Zuther’s sons, Michael and Andreas Zuther, joined the company. Thus the continuity of the family business was secured and the production capacity was again expanded by the construction of a further production hall with the most modern production technology, equipment of the administration with EDP, as well as computer-aided drawing technology and CNC-controlled machines, so that the technical know-how, reliability, quality and price-performance ratio could be further optimized and the competitiveness constantly expanded.

As more and more small and medium-sized mills were shut down in the course of the 1950s, the company had to look for another sales market and decided to focus on the field of grain storage and silo equipment.
Efficient conveying technology and grain cleaning machines were developed for this area, as well as the necessary dust removal technology for the grain silo facilities. In the course of the new technology and growing sales, it became necessary to expand metal processing by closing down the sawmill and constructing a new building for metal processing instead.

In 1949, the company then moved with some employees and families to Neu Tramm in the Lüchow-Dannenberg district and set up a hall for manufacturing and administration.
With the new premises, equipped for woodworking and metalworking, as well as a roll grinding and corrugating machine for reconditioning milling rolls, the company was now in a position to significantly expand its product range for milling machines. At this time, Mr. Horst Zuther, Karl’s son, also joined the company.

End of war

After the end of the war Karl Zuther, from Flensburg-Mürwik, together with his sons Alfred and Hans Zuther and a box of organized tools started to perform repairs in small mills.
The business developed slowly; facilities were rented, machines were procured, and with an increasing number of employees, milling machines, such as semolina cleaning machines, steam cleaning machines, separators, and flour mixing machines were produced.
The enterprise grew, larger facilities and a better company location were sought.

The beginnings

On 10 October 1921 the company, Karl Zuther, Mühlen- und Speicherbau, was founded by miller and master millwright Karl Zuther in Meseritz, Germany.
The enterprise, with its own workshop operation and approximately 10-15 employees specialized in modernizing and erecting small and medium-sized mills.
