Brief history about the company, and our plans for the future.
Founded in 1975, SANDAR Industries served the pulp & paper industry representing suppliers in the Southeastern United States and South America. Witnessing first-hand the problems and safety hazards associated with reel turn-ups, Pete Rodriguez developed and patented the first paperband reel turn-up system in 1984. It did not take long before this patented technology became a worldwide standard. Today there are over 2000 Sandar turn-up systems installed worldwide.
