JKL Machinery News – About us

 

2008, June, JKL Machinery is established!

Humble beginnings starting out in 120 sq. ft office space...Joe Leugers working from the trunk of his car hit the road to establish the company.

September 29, the Stock Market crashes and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 777.68 points!

Now what?... we carry on of course!

2009, June

Our first commercial space, 1,800 sq. ft., located in South Lyon, MI was a leap of faith to establish “brick & mortar” This was the place  we called home while we continued our quest to find the ideal space. During our time there, we began to assemble our machine shop for service & repairs, we formally established vendor relationships, and our customer base continued to grow.

2010, June – We Moved!

We landed back in Brighton in a 5,000 sq. ft. space – it seemed massive and we’ll never outgrow it...or so we thought!

We had furnished offices, conference room, a kitchenette, and an operating showroom.  We hosted many open house events, did lots of customer demos, had many fun times, and it came with a car hoist – perfect!

2012, May – Joe Jr joins the business...

Joe Jr. wears a few hats in the business, including sales of our Non-ferrous Extrusion saws and CNC Machine Centers, Service Support for Busellato CNC, and Dust Collection engineering, just to name a few.  Joe has played an integral role in the growth of JKL Machinery.

2012 – Current, JKL adds staff

Full time Service Technician and a Project Manager have been added to enhance the service support to our loyal customers and vendors.

 

2016,  June – We packed and moved just down the street!

Yep, we moved about 1320 feet down the street.  Our new 14,800 sq. ft. facility, complete with modern offices, a full machine shop, and 12,000 sq. ft. showroom provides a complete experience for our customers.   Our showroom features three central dust/chip collection systems each installed with Clamp Together ductwork.   We welcome you to visit our fully operational showroom featuring the latest technology in Woodworking, Plastics, and Non-ferrous machinery.
