Apr. 3, 2018 – AXYZ International, a Burlington, Ontario-based manufacturer of CNC router systems and CNC knife systems, has acquired WARDJet, an Ohio firm that manufactures waterjet cutting machines.
AXYZ president Alf Zeuner will oversee the combined company as president.
“AXYZ believes in providing localized sales and service support through our own offices. This ensures fast and reliable customer service. We want to bring this same value to WARDJet’s customers,” said Zeuner. “You have to embrace change to be on the right side of history, and this change is a natural one. WARDJet’s vision and our vision could not be more closely aligned.”
WARDJet products will continue to be made in the Ohio facility and will now be supported by AXYZ’s global network of sales and support offices.
Founded in 1991, AXYZ International now has 13 owned and operated offices in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, India and Poland, with plans to open additional offices. With close to 100 WARDJet employees joining the firm, AXYZ International will now employ around 250 people globally.
