Since its foundation in 1948, the Hans Kratt factory has been producing bakery and catering appliances. While emulsifiers and nut mills were a major part of the product range during the early post-war years, the production program has increasingly turned towards Mussana whipped cream dispensers since the start of the fifties. These appliances stood out due to their very high level of quality for those times, as well as their easy operation. The whipped cream dispensers, then operated with compressed air, were followed in the mid sixties by the first cream whipping machines as we know them today. At that time, Hans Kratt Maschinenfabrik became a national and international leading company - a position which it has not relinquished to the present day. The ongoing further development of the machines in the seventies, eighties and nineties, with elements such as complete stain- less steel finish, double mixing rollers, standard portioning and cleaning mechanisms, have made Mussana one of the best products in cream whipping technology.
