Company Overview

In 1898, W.A. Van Berkel, a butcher in Rotterdam of the Netherlands, invented a way to slice more meat to better serve his customers. The result of his innovation was the world's first meat-slicing machine. It not only changed the way slicing was done in his butcher shop, it revolutionized the way people prepare food all over the world. By 1907, Berkel machines were being used in England, Belgium, France, Russia, China, Mexico and Canada.

In 1909, manufacturing of the first American machines began at the U.S. Slicing Machine Company in Chicago, IL. Six years later, the company had outgrown its space in Chicago, building a new factory in LaPorte, IN and changing its name to Berkel, Incorporated. Recently, Berkel relocated to its present location in Troy, OH.
