Absolute Machine Tools has established a partnership with Greenway & Associates in Orange City, IA. Greenway is a full-range distributor of industrial manufacturing equipment, including CNC machine tools, bandsaws and coldsaws, plasma cutting tables and plate rolls, waterjets, sanders, deburring equipment and many other types of equipment solutions manufacturers require throughout their operations.

Greenway & Associates offers sales, engineering and service support in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, North and South Dakota. The company was started by Ron Groeneweg in 1977. Today, Greenway & Associates is operated by President Clark Groeneweg.

"Greenway strives to maintain the integrity we have been taught by our predecessors, to provide customers with quality new and pre-owned industrial equipment capable of fulfilling all facets of manufacturing," said Groeneweg. "By partnering with Absolute Machine Tools, we can now provide a larger range of CNC machine tools, from production turning lathes, to bridge and boring mills, to vertical turning lathes and finally automation solutions, which are becoming ever more requested to help manufacturers be more efficient and profitable. We are proud to offer brands such as Johnford heavy-duty and large CNCs, You Ji vertical turning lathes, Nexturn Swiss, LICO multi-slide screw machines, Quicktech mill/turn centers, AccuteX EDM, Mitsubishi and FANUC industrial robots, and collaborative robots from Productive Robotics through this new partnership."

Further, the new partnership allows Absolute Machine Tools to expand its distributor network and provide additional engineering and service support to new and existing customers. A key addition is Greenway's automation department that focuses on helping customers implement automation and robotics for tasks such as machine tending and visual part inspection. The goal is to eliminate problems resulting from workforce and skilled labor shortages and enable customers to run lights-out, three shifts, 24/7.

Steve Ortner, Absolute Machine Tools founder and President, said, "This partnership with Greenway & Associates provides both companies technical and geographic advantages in terms of a wide-ranging product offering, as well as proximity to customers in these states. We are confident in our products and services, since between the two companies we have hundreds of years of experience combined in applications engineering and service support."
