Our History

, About Dorner
Dorner's Beginning

The Dorner brothers opened their doors in 1966 as a tool and die shop with one simple philosophy: Cater to the customer. This meant building high-quality products and making sure customers were satisfied through quality and service.

, About Dorner
The First Low Profile Conveyor

After identifying the need for a safe method of removing die cuts and scrap from under the pressing machines, the Dorner Brothers developed and patented the industry's first low profile conveyor, the 4100, aka the Slug-O-Matic.
