American Kuhne History
American Kuhne was formed 20 years ago by an exodus of officials from a major extruder producer. In 1997 several former employees of Davis-Standard L.L.C. left that company to establish American Kuhne. Graham bought American Kuhne in 2012, launching the blow molding machinery company into the extruder market.
We are not the American Kuhne OEM but we do service their products.
