Online PR News – 16-April-2010 – – Commemorating a century in the manufacturing of precision food cutting equipment, Urschel Laboratories Inc. continues its worldwide reputation for excellence by working in partnership with customers to meet the ever-changing challenges in the food processing marketplace.

Increases in productivity, the designing of new energy-saving machinery as well as cleaner, more precise cuts, are just a few of the ways the engineers at Urschel have risen to, and continue to rise to, the demands of this dynamic industry. Every machine Urschel manufactures is an original Urschel design that is easy to use, reduces waste and increases production. It is therefore hardly surprising that Bob Urschel, President and CEO of Urschel Laboratories, maintains that “Innovation is something that has remained a driving force for this company. [My grandfather’s] creative spirit and ability to look at something from an all encompassing perspective has helped fuel the company's ongoing success.”

Precision in manufacturing means that every food cutting machine is carefully designed to close tolerances on interior cutting parts. Today, Urschel Laboratories manufactures more than 40 precision-engineered size reduction machines and pieces of food cutting equipment, including a wide range of potato chip slicers, cheese shredders, meat and vegetable cutters and fruit dicers for hundreds of processing applications.

While other suppliers may take weeks to deliver needed parts, Urschel Laboratories delivers food cutting machine parts promptly. This is due to the fact that the company realizes that clients have concerns regarding a potential increase in food production time and general food waste. With Urschel Laboratories however, clients do not have to wait for spare machine parts. Replacement parts for Urschel food processing machines are shipped from an extensive multi-million dollar inventory in a matter of hours.
