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.
