Grand Rapids, Mich., April 4, 2017 –Stiles Machinery, Inc. is pleased to announce that starting in May 2017, six world-renowned machinery brands will unite under the most respected name in woodworking machinery. The technology you’ve come love under the BRANDT, BUTFERING, FRIZ, HOLZMA, HOMAG AUTOMATION, and WEEKE brands will come together under one name: HOMAG.

The trusted HOMAG name will now proudly be attached to the industry’s most innovative panel saws, a wider range of CNC machining centers, a complete line of edgebanders, high-performance profile wrappers, efficiency-increasing automation technology, and powerful wide belt sanders.

This new united strategy combines the development teams into one united unit, enabling HOMAG to bring new, innovating solutions to the market much faster. The synergy created will allow the world’s leading machinery manufacturer to push invention and improvements better than ever before.

Stiles Machinery is proud to support HOMAG in this new approach. As the trusted partner of thousands of manufacturers across North America, Stiles will continue to provide best-in-class equipment and software, consulting, education, service and support that will empower our customers to get the most value from their investments.

“The Stiles name and brand promise remain the same as we continue to provide total production solutions that help our customers succeed,” says Chris Dolbow, Director of Marketing for Stiles. “Backed by the global scale of HOMAG, our promise to customers is unchanged.”

Stiles customers can expect to see the new lines of HOMAG machinery starting at AWFS 2017, where Stiles will once again invite attendees to Experience Stiles through hands-on demonstrations of leading technology and support services.
