History of Altendorf

The Altendorf machinery brand originated in 1906 when Wilhelm Altendorf invented the sliding table saw for the production of furniture.

In 1934 Altendorf developed the first sliding table to be mounted on pairs of rollers; previous versions had relied on runners. This invention opened up the possibility of attaching devices for a whole range of different applications, making the sliding table saw more versatile in use and enabling it to become a key tool of the woodworker’s trade.

In 1956 Kurt and Willy Altendorf, the founder’s sons changed the direction of the company to focus exclusively on manufacturing sliding tables saws and the company has grown from strength to strength following this decision.

Altendorf’s patented table mechanism, machine quality, usability and durability has helped Altendorf develop into a world’s leading manufacturer and for their name to become synonymous with the sliding table saw.

Over 150,000 Altendorf saws have been sold worldwide to carpentry, cabinet making and joinery workshops and wood, metal and plastics processing companies. The company employs 260 people with factories in China, Brazil and Germany and has supplied products to over 130 countries worldwide.
