Late last month we announced plans to invest in our Wixom, Michigan plant to expand our inventory and spare parts warehouse capacity. The works will also add a dedicated customer focus and training centre, and double our machine demonstration area to ensure we have the facility to provide the best possible customer experience.

The proposed expansion for ANCA Inc in Wixom, Michigan


Russell Riddiford, President at ANCA Inc said, “This expansion represents ANCA’s commitment to the Americas markets and to servicing our customers promptly and fully.”

The addition will include an enhanced machine rebuild area and machine configuration area for preparing the machines for customer delivery. It will add to ANCA’s spindle rebuild area and electrical repair facility, permitting the company to respond quickly to customer needs.

According to Mr. Riddiford, the expansion will allow ANCA to add employees to its warehouse, spindle rebuild, and machine configuration areas to provide faster customer service.

This month we were also proud to welcome Minister Greg Hunt, Australian Federal Minister of Industry, Innovation and Science to our Detroit facility. Russell Riddiford hosted the visit where delegates were given a tour of the facility and updates on ANCA's latest technology and products.
Mr Hunt said: “I was pleased to visit ANCA’s showroom today in Detroit and see first-hand the success that can be achieved by a business when they keep their eye on innovation. ANCA are an Australian owned CNC tool grinding manufacturer who exports almost 98% of its product globally but remains committed to its high-end production and main Research and Development team in Melbourne.
“ANCA has a history of investing heavily in R&D to ensure it provides the best technology in its field and focuses on creating a product that is sold into some of the most advanced manufacturing companies in the world - from aerospace to car manufacturing to medical, ANCA is a true success story in harnessing the power of innovation.

“The company has a strategy of utilising a worldwide team of technical specialists to service its diverse range of customers, allowing them to successfully compete in traditional manufacturing regions such as the US, Japan, Germany and China. They are matching their advanced technology with a solid business operation strategy.”


 Russell Riddiford, ANCA Inc President and Minister Greg Hunt
