Mazak Announces Distributor Update for Kansas and Western Missouri

Shelton Machinery and Concept Technical Sales, Inc. have joined forces to provide manufacturers in Kansas and Western Missouri with more than 40 years of combined Mazak experience.

Located near Indianapolis, Shelton Machinery has been serving Mazak customers in Indiana and Kentucky since 1988. In an effort to expand the company's reach as a total manufacturing solutions provider, owners Nick Shelton and Jeff Tucker purchased Concept Technical Sales, a 25-year Mazak distributor based in Overland Park, KS.

As part of a mutually beneficial agreement, Concept Technical Sales will remain at its current location at 6319 W. 100th St., Overland Park, KS, and operate under the name Concept Machinery, a Shelton Machinery Company. Paul Domurat, former President of Concept Technical Sales, will remain at the location, serving as Sales Manager.

"Current Concept Technical Sales customers will have access to the same advanced Mazak equipment and sales contacts, with the bonus of even more service, support and training," said a company spokesperson. Shelton Machinery plans to add new applications engineers and factory certified technicians to the area for improved response times as well as increase the amount of training and learning opportunities available.

According to Nick Shelton, Co-Owner of Shelton Machinery, the new arrangement is a win-win situation for both companies and the Mazak customers they support.

"At Shelton, we wanted to grow our business and expand our expertise to new areas such as aerospace, which has a strong presences in Kansas. And this acquisition allows us to do that," he said. "Conversely, our well-established engineering and applications resources can ensure ongoing success and profitability for Concept Technical Sales customers and employees alike. Together, Success' has long been our mantra at Shelton Machinery and this acquisition embodies that philosophy."

"This merging of distributor resources and expertise is great news for existing and future Mazak owners in Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas and Western Missouri," said Brian Papke, President of Mazak Corporation. "Customers in these four states now have an even greater competitive advantage with over 40 years of Mazak experience backing them."

Owned by Nick Shelton and Jeff Tucker, Shelton Machinery is based near Indianapolis and operates from an 18,000-square-foot facility, which will now serve as the main headquarters for its expanded operations in Overland Park, KS.

As a total manufacturing solutions provider, Shelton Machinery not only sells Mazak machines, it also offers customers advanced applications engineering expertise, including time studies and turn-key options. There are also factory certified technicians on staff to assist customers with preventive maintenance and provide fast response times to a down machine.

Shelton Machinery experienced sales and application engineers seek to turn ideas into productive workable solutions. These engineers can perform accurate time studies for all application types as well as meet turn-key requirements. They also visit customer locations to train operators on how to use or fully maximize the potential of Mazak equipment.
