BURLINGTON, Ontario -- AXYZ International, a CNC router manufacturer, has announced the delivery of its 6,000th machine. The company first started making CNC routers at its Burlington, Ontario, operation in October 1994. Currently, AXYZ builds in excess of 400 machines per year.

AXYZ celebrated this milestone production achievement at its recent AXYZ Router Table 6,000 Event held at the Burlington plant on June 21, 2017. During the event, Delviro Energy, Inc., the customer who purchased the 6,000th table, was acknowledged.

In addition, AXYZ employees were recognized and treated to a BBQ. Several community members attended the celebration, including Rick Goldring, the mayor of Burlington.

AXYZ International has an unusual way of recognizing its employees. "A lot of companies talk about the length of time their staff have worked for the business in terms of how many silver and gold anniversaries there have been or how many 25- and 50-year employees they have," said Greg Jenkins, vice president of sales at AXYZ International.

"We recognize the longevity of our staff by how many machines were manufactured in the time employees have been with the company." AXYZ has a celebration for every 1,000th machine produced. This recognition process began when machine number 1,000 was completed. See http://www.axyz.com.
