GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Stiles Machinery says “We’re Just Getting Started” is the rallying cry behind its 50th anniversary, being celebrated all this year, including at last month's 2015 AWFS Fair. The energy was evident at the largest exhibition of woodworking machinery held this year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. 

“This year’s show was terrific,” said Stiles Vice President of Marketing, Stephan Waltman. “We were practically overwhelmed with visitors from all over North America.”
