Hill Engineering Expands Tool-and-Die Shop
Wednesday, October 08, 2003
Hill Engineering, a Formtek Group company, is adding new equipment and more than doubling the size of its tool-and-die shop in Danville, KY. An 8000-sq.-ft. addition is under construction, set to house a new wire-EDM machine, high-speed CNC milling machine, radial drill press and monorail system as well as worktables and die racks. The new equipment joins a recently acquired Mattison grinder featuring a 24 by 60-in. table.
The reason for the addition: Hill Engineering has grown from three employees in 1988 to 21 today. The shop’s main focus is maintaining tooling for the Dana Victor-Reinz plant, also in Danville.
