Kasto celebrates 175th anniversary

Kasto Maschinenbau, which has its UK subsidiary in Milton Keynes, is this year celebrating 175 years of trading.

With headquarters in Achern, Baden-Württemberg, the firm has evolved from a one-man business into a globally successful company that remains in the hands of the founding family. With the assistance of numerous subsidiaries around the globe, Kasto has sold more than 140,000 bandsaws, circular saws and hacksaws, as well as 2200 storage systems for long stock such as bar and tube, and for sheet metal.
Among the oldest family owned and run companies in Europe, Kasto is using this anniversary year as an opportunity to offer an in-depth look into its history. Marking the occasion, the company is launching a contest to find the oldest Kasto saw still in use. Machines built in or before 1980 may be entered, and customers are invited to e-mail details, including a photo of the saw and of the nameplate, to 175@kasto.com. Every entry will be rewarded and the winner
will be announced later in the year.
