Hermle USA Fortifies Upper Midwest Presence With Stone Machinery Partnership

KLIN, WI (—–) – As it continues to storm North America with its renowned high-precision machines and services, Hermle USA, Inc., a high-quality German-based five-axis machine tool builder, has partnered with Stone Machinery to expand its distribution and take its services to the next level in the Upper Midwest. With the independent sales representative partnership, Hermle products and services will be available for purchase through the leading Midwest distributor in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Western Wisconsin.

According to Tom Drazkowski, President of Stone Machinery, his company is experiencing a significant surge in demand for high-quality machines and automation. “We believe the main driver is that the high-precision industry is looking for ways to reduce labor costs,” Drazkowski said. “To reduce labor, lots of companies are turning to single-source instead of utilizing third party automation. Hermle fills this gap on our roster. Along with their reputation and leadership in the industry, Hermle significantly advances our commitment to provide the best in full five-axis services, readying our customer’s investments to meet what the future demands.”

Hermle USA, Inc. in Franklin, WI, is the North American headquarters of Maschinenfabrik Berthold Hermle AG in Gosheim, Germany. Since 1987, Hermle has provided North America’s leading manufacturers with the finest high-precision machines, manufacturing solutions, applications assistance, customer training and service. “It’s exciting to see the industry stepping up and investing in the future with our products and services throughout North America,” said Markus Puntigam, National Sales Manager of Hermle USA. “With Stone Machinery’s state-of-the-art services and reputation as an industry leader in the region, it’s going to be an inspiring collaboration.”

Established in 1927, Stone Machinery is headquartered in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. With its own growth, the company is rapidly approaching 3,000 units in the field. For more information on the Hermle Machines that are now available at Stone Machinery, visit www.stonemachinery.com.
