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.
