Berkel History

Wilhelmus Adrianus Van Berkel was born at Enschot, Holland, on 5th February 1869 and died at Montreaux, Switzerland, on 11th December 1952.
He was a butcher with a great passion for mechanics. His brains, urged by necessity to improve the old cut tools, induced him to invent the first mechanical slicing machine of his times and called it “Berkel Model A”.
