Excel Patterns, a full service pattern shop, was founded in 1996 in Seymour, WI. After 4 years of growth it became apparent that this young business had out grown that location.
A new more modern building was erected in 2000 and the business was moved to its present location in Bonduel, WI. This new facility with its 6,500 square feet served the business well through the recession period of the early decade into the up-swing of the mid decade.
In an effort to better serve our customers many improvements were made to Excel Patterns during this growth period. In 2006 a new Hurco VMX 64 machining center was installed to increase our machining envelope. Then in 2007 a new Hurco VMX 50 machining center was installed. These 2 machines replaced 4 of the old Sharnoa machining centers that we had been working with. The year 2008 saw the largest portion of our growth when an expansion to our building increased its size to 20,000 square feet of which 10,000 square feet are used for manufacturing. Our largest machining center was also installed at this time, a new Hurco VMX 84, again increasing the machining envelope.
These improvements have solidified our position as a “World Class” manufacturer of high quality, fully CNC machined industrial patterns and molds.
