Begun in 1985, M&R started out with three employees, doing maintenance and repair for screen printers who were dissatisfied with the service provided by the manufacturers of their screen printing presses and other screen printing equipment. Just one year later, M&R began manufacturing manual screen printing presses. In the late 1980's, M&R built Challenger, its first automatic screen printing press. Challenger quickly dominated the market. Graphic screen printing presses followed in 1992. Eventually, M&R went on to become the world's largest manufacturer of screen printing machines, a position it holds to this day. M&R remains heavily invested in advanced technology, earning numerous patents and keeping the company in the forefront of innovative design and rapid product development. Today, M&R produces a wide array of screen printing products and OEM screen printing parts at facilities in Roselle, Illinois, USA and in Wojnicz, Poland. M&R has distributors and support operations throughout the world.
No time to make the trek to Roselle, Illinois to check out our factory in person? We’re in the process of developing a factory tour of M&R’s new manufacturing facility, but until then you can follow Rich Hoffman on a tour of virtually every aspect of M&R's former manufacturing facilities in Glen Ellyn and Niles, Illinois. After you see the making of M&R manual and automatic screen printing presses, gas and electric conveyor dryers, and graphics screen printing machines, you'll understand why screen printing equipment from M&R is unmatched. The new Roselle facility is spacious and features more new milling and machining tools, but it’s staffed with the same dedicated machinists, technicians, and engineers—who continue to turn out the best digital and screen printing equipment in the industry.
M&R designs all of our equipment to work as an integrated system. This presentation will explain M&R System Integration and show you how it can save you money and increase your shop's productivity.
