Since 1903, Utica Mill has been manufacturing quality machines which unwind, rewind and slit large rolls (also known as reels or webs) of material, making them the usable for either further processing or consumer use. Companies all over the world integrate Utica Slitters and Rewinders into their manufacturing process. Utica slitters and rewinders are extremely rugged and have a reputation for dependability and longevity. I own one of the slitters and am amazed at how rugged they are built and how easy they are to work on.
