Fette Compacting

The USA is the largest sales market in the world for the pharmaceutical industry. If for no other reason than the current expiration of patents and health reform, the prognosis for the coming years is for continued growth.

Fette Compacting America is a direct extension of Fette Compacting GmbH, who opened their doors in 1908 and began building rotary presses in 1948. While Fette Compacting has had presence in North America for four decades it is since 1991 that we firmly established ourselves as the world's leading manufacturer of presses, as that was the year we became the first company to successfully engineer and market removable turret technology (ironically, Fette Compacting America developed as a distinct business entity that same year). Fette Compacting America's sole focus remains the sales and support of Fette Compacting's high-speed rotary tablet presses. Fette Compacting America located in Rockaway, New Jersey, is a competent contact partner for all customers from the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico.

As the leading manufacturer of tablet presses, Fette America offers, along with the new and used machines for an effective and timely tablet production, a wide spectrum of process equipment, spare parts and services from technical consultation and installation up to testing and service. Also at the Rockaway location Fette Compacting operates a large training center with instructors from Germany and the USA.
