About Us

After over 60 years of combined experience in the industry, two respected professionals decided to venture out on their own to provide their customers the best service possible. Since experiencing numerous companies that treat their customers as simply a number, they aspired to create a company where their clients truly came first.

In December of 2013, Orbis Machinery, LLC was formed. Based in Waukesha WI, Orbis Machinery, LLC now operates 3 fulltime shifts with nearly 300 employees, a modernized engineering department utilizing the latest engineering software, and lead by two industry-respected specialists with an abundance of knowledge in the process and engineering of Ball Mills, Dryers, Mixers and Blenders.

Orbis Machinery requires the most stringent quality control measures to be observed to provide only the highest quality equipment. Our facility has been certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 Standards in addition to maintaining the “U” and “R” ASME code stamp certificates for pressure vessel construction.
