About Kempler Industries

Family-owned and operated since 1962, Kempler Industries has been buying and selling quality used machinery for more than five decades. Kempler's roots in the used machinery industry date back to 1935. Founded by Charles M. Kempler who was active in the business for 70 years, Kempler is now in its third generation of family ownership. Kempler Industries continues to operate with integrity, making customer service its first priority.

Kempler Industries has one of the world's largest inventories of used hydraulic presses including metalworking presses, compression molding presses, and heated platen laminating presses. Specialties also include press brakes, shears, rolls, mechanical presses, and other assorted fabricating equipment.

Machines from the Kempler inventory are offered with a 30-Day Return Privilege (linked), conforming to the Machinery Dealers National Association (MDNA) Code of Ethics.


MDNA is an international, nonprofit trade association dedicated to promoting the used machinery industry. It was established in 1941 to assure buyers of the integrity and reliability of hundreds of used machinery dealers around the world who are members of the association. The foundation of the MDNA is our Code of Ethics. As a condition of membership, MDNA members agree to abide, unequivocally, by the terms of the Code and renew this pledge annually. The Code is policed by the association's membership. The MDNA’s Ethics & Mediation Committee handles complaints about alleged Code violators; violations result in expulsion from the MDNA.

Kempler Industries is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business with an A+ Rating.
