The M&R Companies is the world's foremost manufacturer of screenprinting equipment for the graphic and textile industries, setting the standard for innovation, quality, and service.
Begun in 1985, M&R started out with three employees, maintaining and repairing equipment for screen printers who were dissatisfied with the service provided by the manufacturers of their equipment. Just one year later, M&R began manufacturing manual presses. In the late 1980's, M&R built Challenger, its first automatic textile press. Challenger quickly dominated the market. Graphic presses followed in 1992. Eventually, The M&R Companies went on to become the world's largest manufacturer of screen printing equipment, a position it holds to this day.
The M&R Companies remains heavily invested in advanced technology, earning numerous patents and keeping the company in the forefront of innovative design and rapid product development. Today, M&R produces a wide array of screen printing equipment at facilities in Glen Ellyn and Niles, Illinois, USA and in Wojnicz, Poland. M&R has distributors and support operations throughout the world.
