30 Years of Expertise and Innovation Celebrated
Our CNC Routers were created in 1991 by Gary Harvey and Alf Zeuner in Ontario, Canada. They noticed a market requirement for modular equipment that could be customized to the demands of clients. The architectural cladding and signage sectors were where we discovered our niche. Over the following 30 years, we extended our reach throughout North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, alongside launching CNCRouterShop.com, an e-commerce site.
Richard Ward established WARDJet in Ohio, USA, in 1995. Richard identified an opportunity to manufacture modular waterjets that could be customized to meet the demands of clients. WARDJet has built a reputation for taking on the most difficult tailored projects. This forward-thinking DNA has drawn customers from the space exploration, automobile, construction, aerospace, and energy industries.
In 2018 and 2017, the Hansen-MacDonald family acquired the principal shareholders of WARDJet and AXYZ, respectively. As President, Luke Hansen-MacDonald brought the two teams to establish AAG Tailored Cutting Solutions. The teams were brought together by their shared interest in modular CNC cutting systems.
The technical support network of WARDJet was expanded throughout the AXYZ worldwide footprint, while the technical depth of AXYZ has increased thanks to the unique capabilities of WARDJet. The e-commerce site of the group company was rebuilt and rebranded as CNCShop.com, ushering in a new age of CNC aftermarket distribution that includes both waterjet and router components.
As the global economy came to a standstill in 2020, the pandemic put the team to the test, shifting the emphasis to sustaining Essential Industries. Millions of essential items, such as face shields, COVID barriers, mask filters, and hospital beds, were manufactured on CNC machines of AAG. Only the extraordinary perseverance of the people that make up the AAG family could have made this happen.
As it approaches its 30th year, the future of AAG has never looked better. Our crew is more motivated than ever. As our clients expand into new sectors, we have charted our route with high-tech advancements. It is achievable because we lead our industries into a new era of Customized Cutting Solutions. In the field of Customized Cutting Solutions, we are the market leaders. Every machine sale is the beginning of a long relationship with our customers. A single goal unifies our team: to assist our clients in reaching their full potential.
