• The Company moved to Summit, NJ in 1940 & built a new manufacturing facility to accommodate growing demands

• During the World War II, the company processed millions of pounds of Magnesium for the war effort

• To address the demand for finer materials, the company developed the first air classifying mill in the 1950’s, the Mikro Atomizer® Air Classifying Mill

• The development of the highly successful Mikro ACM® Air Classifying Mill followed in the 1960s.

• In 1985, the company was acquired by the Hosokawa Micron Group and was renamed Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems

• A new test center was built in 1988 to showcase a wide range of Hosokawa technologies for customer demonstrations
