A Century of Joest

100 years ago, German machine manufacturer Joest was founded. The company, headquartered in Duelmen, produces machines for conveying, screening, and sifting of bulk materials for customers around the globe.

Foundries, steel mills, smelters, quarries and gold mines, but also pharmaceutical companies as well as the food and the recycling industry rely on the machines and system solutions from Joest.

The manufacturer started as a simple repair shop for explosion resistant electric motors, such as those used in the mining industry. Alongside the coal production in the Ruhrgebiet, the family business also constantly evolved. In the 50s, the company delivered the first machines that used vibratory motors – in this way it made themselves independent from mining and opened themselves up to numerous other industries.
