In the late 1890s, a men by the name of Van Berkel from the Netherlands invented the original circular rotating knife slicing machine.


Nearly a century later, the company started by Berkel produces more than just that sole rotating knife. Berkel Inc. produced food processing equipment for food retail and food service industries, slicing machine, scales, saws, choppers, mixer, bread slicers and grinders.


It is also now a worldwide organization, with the parent company in Netherlands. The business come form the Netherlands from U.S. in the early 1900s. It started in Chicago and operation in La Porte commenced in 1915.

Over the last 73 years Berkel expanded from a small, slicer-only operation to a nationwide sales service company offering a complete line of food processing.

The company went out of business in La Porte in 2002.
