Lutz Machinery was founded in 1946 by Henry Lutz, Sr. with nothing more than a tool box. Prior to starting Lutz Machinery, Henry served his apprenticeship with American Type Founders refurbishing printing presses that were shipped around the world. Later during those early years, Henry was one of the head trouble shooters and outside repair mechanic for a variety of machines used in the printing industry.
Shortly after the war, Henry promptly started his own business and was active in it till his demise in late 2005. His broad experience quickly earned him loyal customers who depended on him for his honesty and work ethic. Likewise, numerous companies depended on Henry to set up their new equipment and demonstrate it as well.
In 1968, Henry S. Lutz, after earning a degree in Engineering joined the business full-time. Not long thereafter, Lutz Machinery broadened its scope by turning its attention to the packaging industry. Lutz Machinery started manufacturing die cutting chases, heating bases and controls, foil feeders, wrap around foil units, honeycomb bases, die cutting and embossing plates and the LMC scorecutter. This along with press parts and cam remilling are just a few of the things Lutz Machinery does today in its large modern facility.
