Founded in Germany in 1953, Nutro acquired the Schweitzer Equipment Company in 1980 and changed the name to Nutro Machinery. Located in Cleveland, Ohio, the 40-year-old Schweitzer firm was a recognized supplier of gun movers, conveyers, ceramic glazing equipment and products for paint finishing.
Nutro expanded the Schweitzer Equipment offering to become a diversified manufacturer of paint and ceramic glaze spray systems. The company moved to its current Strongsville, Ohio manufacturing facility in 1986, enlarging the plant to more than 70, 000 square feet in 1995.
In 2008 Venjakob GmbH purchased the assets Nutro and formed Nutro Inc. Venjakob is a recognized leader in industrial flat line finishing serving such industries as Automotive Plastics, and Wood.
