Ansonia, CT (August 24, 2023)... There are very few companies that can claim they have been in business for 175 years. FARREL POMINI (Farrel Corporation) is one of those few. 2023 marks not only 175 years since the founding of Farrel, but also the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the company’s Farrel Continuous Mixer (FCM™).

"Farrel was founded in 1848. We have operated for 175 years. This is a statement few companies can make," said Paul Lloyd, FARREL POMINI Business Unit Director and President for Farrel Corporation. "In addition, we launched our innovative technology, the FCM™, Farrel Continuous Mixer, 60 years ago, in 1963. We want to be sure to celebrate these milestones by having an event to demonstrate appreciation for our employees and retirees."
Ian Wilson and Holger Rudzio, Ph.D., the Co-CEO’s of FARREL POMINI’s parent company, HF MIXING GROUP, will also attend the event.
The schedule of events for the day includes:
