Ninety Years of Performance

figure6Oliver is a third-generation manufacturer in North America.  Established in 1930 by Oliver W. Steele ( who was born to one of the developers of the first modern gravity separator, circa 1897) the company has flourished throughout the past 90 years. 

From the beginning, the company has been run by the Oliver family.  Grandson Geoff O. Burney took over after Oliver W Steel retired. For forty years he strived to make this company not only a great place to work but also a beacon for all things processing. Following in the path of his father’s footsteps Brian Burney now keeps the family business thriving.

Since the start, it has been a goal to combine durability and efficiency with technological advancements to make high-quality products. Like the 1951 multiple-fan design that tripled capacity and today’s Voyager and Maxi-Cap Platinum. The first fully automated, fully integrated gravity separators in the business.

For 90 years, Oliver has led the way with products for the seed, nut, coffee, recycling, lumber, and mining industries. With the help of people like you, we will be around for another 90. Together our hope of  Processing for a more productive planet will come true. Check out how we can help your processing needs today!
