Based in Fort Wayne, Ind., Deister Machine Co., Inc. is celebrat- ing its 100th anniversary as a leading manufacturer of high-qual- ity feeding, scalping and screening equipment. Deister has remained a family-owned business since its founding in 1912. "We continue to build upon our century of service via solid engineering and customized screening solutions that allow operators to efficiently meet the most stringent specifications," said Deister Chairman and Co-CEO Irwin F.

The company's dedica- tion to the industry began with their grandfather, Emil Deister, the company's founder. In the early 1900s, Emil Deister took up the study of ore sep- aration; and eventually, he would patent his own equipment, starting with a centrifugal separator that extracted gold from mercury amalgam, and continuing on to develop ore separating tables. His table is praised in Taggart's Handbook of Ore Dressing, the official textbook at many mining schools, as the first serious competition to the only other kind of ore separating table available at the time. Emil established his business in 1906 as the Deister Concentrator Co. In 1912, Emil sold his interests in Deister Concentrator Co. and established Deister Machine Co., Inc. Deister Machine Co. began manufacturing operations at its current location. The original building, a 5,500 sq-ft plant, is still in active use amid a total operation that today spans more than 360,000 sq ft and four plant locations in Fort Wayne. Its line of equipment includes heavy-duty inclined screens, high-speed screens, horizontal screens, dewatering screens, and vibrating feeders and grizzlies. Additionally, Deister recently introduced its new Ultra-Fines Recovery System, as well as its new line of Deister Premium Portable Screening Plants.
