From Pioneer to Innovative Problem-Solver
Innovative technologies, intelligent software, robust construction and modern design are the four cornerstones of our machine manufacturing activities in the USA and Germany.
At our American location in Puyallup (near Seattle) and our German Opladen and Erkelenz locations, we produce 3D profile cutting machines for round pipes, tanks, dished-ends, square and rectangular pipes and steel beams as well as automated welding solutions for the toughest requirements in the metalworking industry.
The machines and our software solutions are used in all segments of thermal cutting and welding and represent the first and the most important stage of a modern production process. The high quality of workmanship and the many years of experience of our staff are an assurance of integrated solutions for complex cutting and welding tasks - worldwide.

A Brief History
Watts Mueller is a US company founded by Don Watts as Watts Specialties in the early 1980s. It focused in its early years on the production of small pipe-cutting machines for welding schools. Müller Opladen is a tradition-steeped German engineering company that can look back on an almost century-long history since its founding in 1919. Müller Opladen became a shareholder of Watts Mueller in 2016.
We carefully listen to understand the needs of our customers and we work diligently to find solutions geared to these requirements. This also entails serving our customers in a spirit of partnership throughout the life-cycle of our machines. In collaboration with our customers, our engineers in Germany and in the United States are constantly developing new solutions. Thanks to our extensive experience in the fields of CAD, software programming, developing electronic control systems, isometric projection and application-oriented cutting and welding processes, we can ensure that our technologies are always state-of-the-art.
