company history

Harmonic Machine Inc. can trace its beginning to 1997, when its present owner, Gerald Neels, purchased an older used manual 14x40 lathe. The purpose at the time was to provide the ability to allow his sons the opportunity to learn something about the machining trade. Gerald had completed a machinist apprentice program in 1980 through IMW Industries as sponsor.

Within a short period an opportunity arose to produce some machined parts. After setting up the machine to operate like a turret lathe, the "boys" were pumping out the parts!

Having only a lathe and a small drill press was limiting the ability to machine some components, so a small turret mill was added. After a few years of operating as a proprietorship, Harmonic Machine was incorporated in 2001. Facing increasing production demands the first CNC lathe, a ROMI M17, was purchased in June of 2000. Since then there has been a steady growth in our equipment. See our Equipment Page for more details!

In order to serve you better, we are happy to announce that Harmonic Machine has now moved to the new premises at 44365 Progress Way!
