Company Spokesperson: Black Clawson Ltd was originated in Hamilton, Ohio, USA, in the 1880’s and has been delivering innovative machinery to the world wide paper industry since that time. One of our proud boasts is to have delivered the first modern paper making machine to Asia in the 1890’s and we have regularly helped in shaping the paper industry into its current form.
In 1948, Black Clawson began manufacturing in Newport, Wales, UK, under the guidance of the Landegger Family, who are still actively guiding the company’s direction as Mr. Carl C Landegger still owns the company Black Clawson Limited. Black Clawson Limited began trading in its present form in 2000. Prior to 2000, the company was known as Black Clawson International and belonged to the Black Clawson group of companies owned by the Landegger family.
