In 1949, Wilfred Wendt co-founded D&J Press Company, Inc., which manufactured hydraulic baling presses for the scrap processing industry. After working closely with his father for a number of years, Thomas A. Wendt, Sr. continued the family commitment to the industry by forming his own company, WENDT CORPORATION, in 1977.

From the beginning, WENDT grew at a rapid pace. Taking on new projects and equipment were just the beginning. Through our many endeavors we’ve developed specialized products and strategic partnerships with world-class providers of complimenting products and services. The result is a comprehensive product line assembled to service the needs of our customers today and in the future.

In 1997, Tom Wendt, Jr. joined his father, continuing a third generation of the Wendt family’s commitment to the scrap processing equipment industry.

WENDT CORPORATION’s portfolio of advanced shredding and separation system installations is unmatched in North America and it will continue to grow throughout the world. Our commitment to customer service has translated into a leadership position within the industry.
