Tracing the Roots of Stokes Machine Company

The story of Stokes begins in the bustling streets of Philadelphia in the late 19th century. After graduating from Haverford College, Frances J. Stokes served as an apprentice to renowned machinist Robert Shoemaker. In 1895, he purchased the machine firm from Shoemaker and renamed it the F.J. Stokes Machine Company. By 1896, Stokes was an established company in history with the invention of the Eureka tablet machine, a pioneering solution for the medical tablet industry

Stokes Today - Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow’s Technology

Evolving with the times, Stokes embarked on a transformative journey in 2005, becoming a proud member of the Compression Components and Services (CCS) brand family. Joining forces with CCS expanded our horizons with brand new opportunities, enabling us to design customized tablet presses with cutting-edge control systems. Now, our focus isn't solely on new tablet press machinery; we offer comprehensive solutions. Whether it's customized machines, refurbished equipment, essential spare parts, immersive training, or specialized field services, our dedication to our customers has remained unwavering.
