GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Stiles Shop Solutions is the new name of Altendorf America, a sales division of Stiles Machinery Inc.

Stiles Shop Solutions debuted at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, replacing the 22-year-old divisional name. The new name was chosen based on research and analysis of the entry to mid-size markets.

Bill Cariano, vice president of Stiles Machinery and manager of the Stiles Shop Solutions division, said, “It is our hope that the Stiles Shop Solutions name will help our customers recognize that the focus of this division of Stiles is to provide entrepreneurial or custom shops with solutions that will contribute to their success. This new branding emphasizes our ever-increasing commitment to being a leader in recommending, supplying and supporting high-quality solutions and services to U.S. woodworking shops.”

Stiles Shop Solutions products range include Altendorf sliding table saws, Brandt edgebanders, and certain models of Bütfering widebelt sanders, Holzma CNC panel saws, Weeke CNC routers and machining centers, and Kentwood moulders.
