40 Years of Service Excellence

Wauseon Machine started as a small machining shop in 1983 specializing in build-to-print tooling, prototypes, and machined parts. Today, we have over 100 CNC machines and can produce parts for our customers ranging from low-volume to high-volume production quantities.


In 1988, we designed and built our first ram tube end forming machine. Today, we have a standard line of tube end forming, decoating, and crimping machines with an installed base in 22 countries.

In 2002, we began our journey in automation by integrating robots with our end forming equipment. Today, we have extensive experience designing, building, and installing automation solutions leveraging a broad range of application capabilities.

In 2022, we acquired McAlister Design and Automation, located in Greenville, SC, to expand our automation solutions footprint, customer base, and application capabilities. Today, we are well positioned to service the automation needs of our customers.

Technology has changed over the past 40 years, but our mission at Wauseon Machine remains the same – take on and solve challenges for our customers that helps improve their business.
