The History of Progressive Machinery

Progressive Machinery, Inc. was founded in 2000 by Tom Tank. Tom has over 28 years of experience in the Wisconsin area serving and supporting customers with their machine tool needs.

We began with the Kira and Excel product lines. In May 2001, we were granted the exclusive distribution rights to sell and service KIA Machine Tools in Wisconsin. By February 2005, our success and continued growth allowed us to secure the exclusive rights to sell and service KIA Machine Tools in Illinois.

In 2006, KIA and Hyundai merged to form the new Hyundai-KIA product line. Successful models from each manufacturer were combined to offer a wider product range. The combination of these successful models has made Hyundai-KIA the sixth largest machine tool builder in the world.

Our philosophy of "Excellence in Customer Service" has been our key to success. Since our founding in 2000, Progressive Machinery, Inc. has become a major supplier of machine tool products, sales and service in the Wisconsin and Illinois market.
