North South Machinery began in 1985 doing machine tool sales in La Habra, California. Founded by Jim Swartzbaugh and Glen Zachman in the basement of Jim's house, they started as the exclusive dealer for Mitsubishi EDM and developed a prestigious name in non-traditional machining. Quickly outgrowing the building in La Habra the company moved in 1988 to nearby Brea, finding a new home in an industrial complex that more properly suited their needs. Adding to North South Machinery’s success, they added two more nontraditional lines, Mitsubishi waterjet, and laser. In 25 years they have grown to a total of 35 employees. Covering the West Coast for many manufacturer lines, they are typically #1. Most recently we have become the dealer for Tornos Swiss Screw machines and Esco Automatics - both the premier lines in their field. North South looks forward to continued growth based on our formula for success “Attitude + Performance = Successful Long Term Relationships”.

North South Machinery is proud to say that our core group has been employed here for an average of 18 years. Most have come from the related fields and contribute a wealth of knowledge in every aspect of the business.
