A to Z Machine Breaks Ground on New Production Facility

A to Z Machine broke ground on a 30,000-sq. ft. production facility in Appleton, WI, the first expansion as an employee-owned entity. The new building, which is being built by Consolidated Construction, Co., will expand the company's first shift capabilities and support its continued growth.

"We see the buildout as a retention initiative," said Amanda Schabo, CFO at A to Z Machine. "We have several highly skilled machinists currently on our second shift that, in time, want to transition to first shift. We do not have the space to add additional machines for them in our current facilities."

The additional manufacturing space will also push A to Z's total to over 110,000 sq. ft., allowing the company to innovate and improve alongside its customers' needs. The new facility will feature state-of-the-art machinery and automation systems to enhance CNC parts capabilities for clients in a number of industries, including agriculture, military, food processing, oil and more. Construction is expected to be completed by September 2023, with the space being operational by October.

A to Z Utility Department Lead Randy Smith views the expansion as a way to help inspire the next generation of machinists, especially through the company's youth apprentices program, which gives high school juniors and seniors in the Fox Valley hands-on experience. "This new building will provide even greater opportunities for youths to explore the world of machining and consider it as a viable career path when they graduate," Smith said.
