TROY, MI – Fadal Engineering (Fadal), a Michigan-based company, and Merrill Technologies Group (MTG), a Michigan-based, family-owned manufacturer, have joined forces to launch a new Fadal CNC full-range product line.
“Fadal will manufacture in Michigan and California, and sell globally through a distributor network. Fadal was a global leader in the production of Vertical Machining Centers (VMC) before closing its manufacturing facility in Chatsworth, CA in 2008.” said Tansel Avci, Chairman.
Fadal will launch its new Classic Series VMC at this year’s International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), September 8-13, 2014, in association with Ingersoll Cutting Tools of Rockford, IL.
"There is something kind of nostalgic about bringing a once family-owned company back to its roots, said Robert Yackel, CEO of family-owned Merrill Technologies Group and now Fadal Engineering. The founding family of Fadal was a lot like my family. Entrepreneurial, hardworking, resourceful and determined. We’re proud to lead Fadal into its next era of success and the market is hungry to have Fadal back.”
