About Us

Since 1958, Methods Machine Tools, Inc. has been North America’s foremost supplier of leading-edge precision machine tool and additive solutions – providing superior products, engineering and automation, parts and service, training, and integration.

Make a Difference to the Bottom Line

Founded in 1958, with three employees and a few refurbished machines, Methods Machine Tools, Inc. has grown into one of the largest, most innovative precision machine tools importers in North America. With over 300 employees, eight sales and technology centers, and over 35,000 machines installed throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, Methods supplies leading-edge precision machine tools and solutions. The founder Mr. Clement McIver, Sr., established principles from the company’s beginning that continue to set Methods apart from conventional importers or distributors. “Anyone can sell a machine,” said the company’s late founder, “but not everyone provides the extra effort that makes a difference in the company’s bottom line.”
