About Us

D. Maldari & Sons, Inc., established in 1901, has grown to be the largest macaroni Die manufacturing firm in the western hemisphere.

Incorporated in the State of New York on March 15, 1958 under the title of D. Maldari & Sons, Inc., the company has continued to expand, applying its experience, resources and new Die concepts to the cereal, snack, chocolate and animal-food industries as well.

Maldari takes pride in both its engineering staff and skilled craftsmen. Our talented and skilled employees are dedicated to the progress of the food industry. It is a Maldari policy to use only pure, virgin materials, proven for durability and superior quality.

Because our industry is subject to constant improvements, innovations and the preferences of individual manufactures, this website can merely present and illustrate samples of standard food designs with a limited number of specialties. We are fully equipped, however, to manufacture practically any extrusion Die in accordance with special designs and specifications.

Three generations of Maldari's with basic know-how knowledge handed down personally to meld together education and experience. This is the legacy of D. Maldari & Sons, Inc.

Out of this legacy grew unrelenting progress, constant improvements, new ideas, and finally, State of the Art computerization and automation materialization of ideas, and manufacturing.

D. Maldari & Sons, Inc. has predicated its very life on supplying opportune and timely services to the industry. A call for help will immediately energize both Danny and Chris, current owners of the family business, to analyze the situation and mobilize necessary personnel to reschedule production facilities should immediate Die replacement or repair or possibly a new or novel shape be required within a limited time.

Over A Hundred Years of Faithful Service

Three generations of Maldari's with basic know-how knowledge handed down personally to meld together education and experience. This is the legacy of D. Maldari & Sons, Inc.

Out of this legacy grew unrelenting progress, constant improvements, new ideas, and finally, State of the Art computerization and automation materialization of ideas, and manufacturing.

D. Maldari & Sons, Inc. has predicated its very life on supplying opportune and timely services to the industry. A call for help will immediately energize both Danny and Chris, current owners of the family business, to analyze the situation and mobilize necessary personnel to reschedule production facilities should immediate Die replacement or repair or possibly a new or novel shape be required within a limited time.

Have a problem? A breakdown? Must meet schedules? Emergencies are given top priority. Someone conjures up an appealing configuration? Marketing time is of the essence? Management wants no excuses? Call Danny for expeditious service. Computerized equipment and experienced personnel will quickly transfer your idea to a material design. Danny will personally discuss the practicability of manufacturing a novel shape, and automated equipment will rush the Die to completion.

All facilities at D. Maldari & Sons are flexible enough to cope with any contingencies. State of the Art equipment stands ready to operate around the clock to meet any emergency which may arise. Should any problem require personal attention at its source, Maldari personnel stand ready to meet with all concerned individuals.

Supported by continuing advanced technology and three dimensional CAD CAM stations, our computer programmers have the capability of designing varying configurations and immediately draw up required programs which are transmitted directly to our NC equipment. Simulated tool path generation assures both accuracy and quality in our finished products.

Once limited to production of Dies to extrude standard shapes, we now offer assistance in helping to develop novel and exotic configurations of pasta which will appeal to everyone regardless of age. Our computerized equipment has enabled us to design and manufacture Dies to extrude configurations which appeal to children, such as animal shapes including domesticated animals, wild animals, birds and fish. For those who are sports-minded, we have a variety of sports equipment shapes. And for the serious business executives, we develop their company logos. Do you have any novel or outlandish configuration in mind? We here at D. Maldari & Sons, Inc. are ready to help your ideas materialize to reality.

To complement our Extrusion Die services, we now offer related equipment including Mostaccioli Cutters, Bow Tie Machines, Stick Washers, and Die Washing Machines. Technical help to solve any problem you may encounter is always readily available.

Our staff of computer programmers is always on the alert to assist in the development of novel configurations for new shapes, and they work closely with customer personnel to anticipate and eliminate any possible problems which may arise during production.

It is of utmost importance for production personnel to be knowledgeable in their field, but it is far more important for them to know who they can contact for help should a production emergency arise. Reliability and efficient service can be found under the name of D. Maldari & Sons.
