Developing new innovative coffee machines has always been our goal and core competence.


Aequator coffee machines was founded in 1933 by Alfred Meyer. He concentrated in high pressure brewing and developed the first coffee machines. In the 70s Aequator developed and sold the first fully automatic machines. After Manfred Meyer took over he decided to enter into the export market.

We continue to develop innovative solutions and to extend our product range tightly focussed. In the past years we also produced specific private label machines.

Aequator, the traditional family business, still is property of the founder family and is headed by the third generation. Over 80 years experience, a stable situation of the manufacturer and the country (Switzerland) form the strong basis of trust and confidence to master the challenges of the future.
