Betenbender Manufacturing, Inc. facilities.


The Betenbender Family of American Hydraulic Shears and Hydraulic Press Brakes is made by
 Betenbender Manufacturing,Inc. in Coggon, Iowa, U.S.A. Now in our fifth decade in business, this Midwestern Company
 continues to produce, what we believe, is America’s best - built Shears and Press Brakes. Glen Betenbender began as a blacksmith
 in Coggon during the 1930s. During WWII, he ran a small fabrication and repair shop. In 1948 he and his wife moved their
 growing business into their current location as a repair and manufacturing facility. Their son, Max, joined the company in 1967
 after serving in the United States Army. In 1972, Glen and Max built their first shear -- then for their own use, but demand from
 other local businesses for their shear prompted the Betenbenders to begin producing shears for nationwide and international resale.
 In 1984 Betenbender Manufacturing, Inc. got its first contract to produce shears for a major company.

In 2012 Betenbender Manufacturing, Inc. purchased Hydraulic Machines, Inc. from long time friends, Alan and Whitney Hanner.
  Under the HMI (Hydraulic Machines of Iowa) name we offer a line of C frame presses ranging from 40 ton to 200 ton.

Today, there are over 3,900 Betenbender machines in use with very few on the used market.

We have always said...
“If it says Betenbender on the nameplate, you’ve got a machine that will do the job.”


This Betenbender Hydraulic Shear, (one of the first machines - made in 1972) is still in operation today.
