Baumfolder Corporation began as the Liberty Folder Company, founded in Sidney, Ohio. Russell Baum, an accomplished Philadelphia businessman, became a Liberty Dealer in 1935. Mr. Baum sold so many Liberty machines in the eastern United States, that they became known as “Baum” folders. In 1950, Russell Baum became the company’s sole owner.
Throughout Baumfolder Corporation’s history, mergers and acquisitions have played an important role in product development and growth. Heidelberger Druckmaschien AG (Heidelberg), the renowned graphic arts equipment manufacturer, bought Stahl, USA, and with it Baumfolder in 1999. Baumfolder Corporation is now a division of Heidelberg.
