GF Machining Announces Several New Distributors

GF Machining Solutions Names New Distributors in Northwest and West

GF Machining Solutions recently named three new distributors to serve customers in the Northwest and West regions. Effective September 1, 2016, Ellison Technologies is serving GF Machining Solutions customers in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. D&R Machinery is covering Arizona, and the current territory for Hartwig, Inc. has been expanded to serve those customers in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.


GF Machining Solutions selected the new distributors based on their proven abilities to provide extensive service and support to customers as well offer more complete market coverage in the states they serve. Customers will benefit from easier access to demonstration centers and larger sales and support teams that can work in conjunction with GF Machining Solutions to provide timely front-line service and application support on equipment.

“These distributors have set the benchmark in offering the highest level of service and support to their customers,” explained Scott Fosdick, president of GF Machining Solutions. “Partnering with these market leaders better reflects our position as a comprehensive solutions provider and enhances our ability to support customers throughout the entire cycle of their machine tool.”

The new technologies available to these distributors through their partnerships with GF Machining Solutions include EDM, milling and laser texturing. With access to such technologies, the distributors will be able to provide solutions that address specialized needs of all customers in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, die-mold and other industries.

Current GF Machining Solutions customers in the Northwest and West regions can expect a streamlined transition to these new distributors. Representatives from each distributor will be available in the GF Machining Solutions booth S-8754 at IMTS 2016 to answer questions and discuss the enhanced service and support offerings.
