Herkules Meuselwitz takes its roots from Heymer & Pilz GmbH Maschinenfabriken und Eisengießerei Meuselwitz,  founded in 1876. The company is specialized in the manufacture of heavy-duty machines, such as machines for briquetting brown coal.

After the National Socialists seize power, the company becomes part of the war economy and then, in the course of expropriation in 1948, a nationally-owned enterprise. The first roll grinders are manufactured in 1955. After the reunification of Germany, the company is privatized and now operates under the name of Maschinenfabrik und Eisengießerei Meuselwitz GmbH.

In 1992, Herkules acquires the long-established company. Structural changes, the optimization of the product range and investments soon lead to an increase in business. Since then, Herkules Meuselwitz is a successful company within the HerkulesGroup.
