Our Story

The Lorenz story is a genuine entrepreneurial adventure laced with German engineering. Settling in North America in the 1920’s the Lorenz family tree is full of millwrights, blacksmiths and inventors.

With the patented Lorenz Clamp, Lorenz & Son opened for business in 1979 in a home garage and eventually moved to a 600 square foot facility to start production. Since then Lorenz Conveying Products has expanded to a 50,000 square foot facility and has become a leading manufacturer of all things conveying. From slide gates and diverter valves, tube and pipe bends, cyclones and many customized fabricated accessories, Lorenz products have helped businesses flow in a variety of sectors including food and pet food processing, milling, plastics and packaging. With a deep understanding and knowledge of the industry the Lorenz team knows intimately the challenges customers face when designing systems and works tirelessly to provide solutions with the big picture in mind. A team of close knit long time employees ensure that the family culture that began the business remains intact today.

Lorenz Conveying Products was born and led by Peter Lorenz, after Ed and Diane Lorenz, founders of Lorenz and Son Manufacturing retired in the 1990’s. Peter Lorenz is an industry expert and experienced millwright by trade. Lorenz Conveying Products specializes in manufacturing components and accessories that address each customers unique needs.

It is this family culture that makes Lorenz stand out. Customers aren’t “customers” but rather extended members of the Lorenz family where they are provided with the counsel, innovation, support and service they need to ensure their businesses flow smoothly.
