GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- Weeke Machinenbau has expanded its plans to produce woodworking macihnery at the United States.

According to Stiles Machinery Inc., U.S. distributor of Weeke equipment, the company will produce its ABD drilling and dowel insertion machines at its Grand Rapids, Michigan manufacturing facility, Weeke North America. The Weeke ABD 050 machine is scheduled to be available for delivery to U.S. customers later this year. These machines will be produced in addition to the Weeke Vantech series of CNC routers that have been in production since the Weeke North America facility opened in 2009.

“We are excited about manufacturing more Weeke machines here in Grand Rapids,” said Stephan Waltman, vice president for Stiles. “This is good news for our customers because their lead times will be significantly reduced, and it continues to be great news for the West Michigan economy.”
