THE COMPANY ALTENDORF

THE LEGEND OF ALTENDORF - THE LEGEND OF THE SLIDING TABLE SAW

Berlin, 1906: In order to produce his own furniture designs, Wilhelm Altendorf built a machine saw on which the workpiece is guided over the saw blade on a sliding table. Over the course of the following century "the Altendorf" became a legend, and the company became the world market leader for sliding table saws. Today over 260 people work for Altendorf in countries all around the world. Every year 2400 sliding table saws leave its factories in Minden, Germany, and Qinhuangdao, China, on their way to international customers working with wood, metal and plastics.
