About Feldmeier Equipment, Inc.
Feldmeier Equipment was founded in 1952 when Robert H. Feldmeier, driven to improve the way the world processes fluids, developed the world’s first Triple Tube™ Heat Exchanger. From this revolutionary advancement grew a family inspiration to expand ingenuity and forward thinking to a variety of industries.
Feldmeier Equipment has since become a respected supplier to some of the most elite companies worldwide in their respective trades. From pharmaceutical, biotech, and cosmetic clients to brewers and food, dairy, and beverage processing facilities, the Feldmeier name has become synonymous with quality, dependable stainless steel processing equipment.
As we have grown from a single facility in Syracuse, New York to seven manufacturing facilities in four states with global reach, there continues a constant theme that keeps us true to our original principles.
From the advent of the Triple Tube Heat Exchanger, to the Spray-Up silo cleaning system, and most recently the Feldmeier’s entire Pharma Mixer agitation line, innovation has been, and will continue to be, a family tradition. The Feldmeier family and name remain the backbone of the company today, now three generations strong.
