Pillar Machine has purchased the assets, inventory, receivables, and intellectual property from the bank that foreclosed on Accu-Systems.
Accu-Systems is considered a household name in the woodworking industry. They have successfully produced the top standard stock machines along with several lines of custom machines for customers. The 30+ years of success in building woodworking machine had to come to a close on November 6, 2013. Mel Hatch, who was the sole owner of Accu-Systems has employed and trained many people over the years to become very knowledgably in this industry and is proud to have made high quality machines, machines that will last a long time.
Jeff Hatch is Mel Hatch’s’ son who has worked in this industry with Accu-Systems for over 20 years. I can provide for you a professional CV so you can see the accomplishments of Jeff Hatch and understand who is behind Pillar Machine. Mr. Jeff Hatch is the sole owner of Pillar Machine. Since Pillar acquired the intellectual knowledge he will be building the standard stock machines that Accu-Systems built. Pillar has plans to bring out other models but for now will focus only on the stock machines. Pillar Machine commitment to the industry is to produce high quality machines in about 4 weeks lead time.
