For more than 65 years Boston Matthews has been at the forefront of extrusion machinery technology.
As the Inventors of the Caterpillar Take-Up (Puller) Boston Matthews has earned a place in the coveted US Plastics Hall Of Fame.  With over 10,000 direct descendants of the ‘Boston’ or Farris Puller in daily use around the world, Boston Matthews is the leading manufacturer of Caterpillar Puller.
Boston Matthews invented the Caterpillar Take-Off and with over 10,000 units in daily operation throughout the world the Boston Model 'C' or "Farris" Puller is classed as the Industry Standard and No.1 Puller in the USA and The World.
The importance of the Puller should never be under-estimated. The failure to pull accurately and consistently will have an adverse effect on the performance on the entire extrusion line resulting in out-of tolerance and poor quality production.
Chances are good that you have, at one time another, had a Boston or Farris puller somewhere in your extrusion production line.
Boston Matthews were the world’s first manufacturers of an 150mm Extruder for the processing of Polyurethane and the first European company to successfully process Fluorocarbons.
