Ludman Industries designs and builds OEM high precision agglomeration machinery. We specialize in complete process solutions for fertilizer, mining, mineral, chemical, waste water treatment and food applications.
Ludman’s roots were established by Allis-Chalmers Corporation’s Mining and Food Divisions in 1901. Ludman Industries opened its doors in 1968 to continue manufacturing Allis-Chalmers’ machinery from the aforementioned divisions. Together, we have been feeding the world for over 100 years.
Ludman Industries designs, engineers and manufactures compactors, briquetters, granulators,
flake breakers, flaking mills, and shredding mills, in addition to providing complete process solutions for compaction plants.
