EXSYS Tool Celebrates 25th Anniversary

EXSYS Tool Inc., the exclusive importer of EPPINGER toolholders, adapters and specialty products, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. "For a quarter-century, EXSYS has served as an industry-leading supplier of CNC tooling and toolholders, including innovative products like the PRECI-FLEX modular toolholding system and a wide range of high-precision live and fixed toolholders for turning centers," said a company spokesperson.

EXSYS was established by President and CEO Stewart Bachmann and Craig Campbell, who served as Vice President of Sales until 1998. Originally an acronym for "Expert Systems," EXSYS began as a business launched by Walter Bachmann, Stewart Bachmann's father, who had previously served as a director of manufacturing planning and had considerable experience with the production of special tooling.

"My father started his business out of our house in California, with boxes of toolholders stacked up on the washing machine," recalled Bachmann. "But he made some significant achievements while working with EPPINGER, and developed specialized manufacturing solutions. So when Craig and I started another branch of EXSYS, I used what I learned from him to push our sales and applications expertise even further."

Initially, the new branch of EXSYS remained focused on the sale of axial and radial toolholders, products the company has refined and optimized over the years. The company increased its capacity year after year, eventually forming an exclusive distribution partnership with EPPINGER. Today, in addition to its current headquarters in San Antonio, FL, the company has Canadian and Mexican distribution centers in Ontario and Monterrey, as well as factory representatives in Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru and Chile.

"We have been successful for 25 years for two reasons," explained Bachmann. "We treat every call seriously, whether it is an order for $30 or $30,000, and we are wholly dedicated to our customers-if any of our products require repair, we are at their facility, tearing it apart and reassembling it as quickly as possible. Within 24 hours, if necessary."

Given the success of its formula, Bachmann plans to maintain EXSYS' current trajectory through continued excellence in customer service. "We are always looking for ways to cut our costs and increase our quality so we can pass those savings on to our customers," he said. "We are working to boost our stateside inventory, expedite the delivery of our key components and push quality control even further, all to ensure our customers can rely on us as they work to achieve their own manufacturing success."
