“We’ve been doing business in Chicagoland for the past 20 years, and have had wonderful customers here for that long” said Steve Ortner, president of Absolute. “It just made sense for them and for new opportunities here that we plant ourselves and offer greater support.” According to recent city data, Elgin is among the fastest growing cities in Illinois.  

Absolute Machine Tools has named Michael Land as General Manager of the new location. He will guide and oversee all the functions that will be housed in the modern building, including business administration, sales, applications engineering, assembly, parts inventory, machine demonstration showroom, product training, and field service. Most recently, Mr. Land was Sales Manager at Methods Machine Tools, Inc.
