Balemaster, a division of the East Chicago Machine Tool Corporation, was founded in 1946, as a manufacturer of balers and shredders used in the paper and packaging industry.

To create a world-wide sales and service organisation, Balemaster started in 1965 also manufacturing equipment in Europe.

This step was so succesfull that it resulted in 1981 in the establishment of an independent company.
