Overfalz has been designing and producing folding machines for 30 years.

Teknoweb announced the acquisition of Overfalz Maschinenbau Gmbh. The Duisburg, Germany-based company has been designing and producing high-quality folding machines for the nonwovens industry for the last 30 years. These machines ensure a low maintenance cost and an unprecedented versatility.


“We are going to sell our machines with both the Overfalz and Teknoweb brands in the American market, where Overfalz is already a synonymous with reliability," said Fabio Zampollo, CEO of Teknoweb srl, “while in Europe we will keep the Teknoweb parent brand for all our existing platforms, because it is well known and widely trusted."
