Sterling Extruder Hilstory
Sterling Extruder Corporation operated under its own name and ownership until 1986, when it was acquired by Baker Perkins North America Inc. (and subsequently sold to APV). Although Sterling machines have not been made under this name for over 30 years, Sterling extruders are still very common throughout the plastics industry and are well regarded for their high quality and reliable performance.
We are not the Sterling OEM, but we do service their products.
