Visiting the Largest Machine Tool Manufacturer in the US

Challenges: Workforce, Watch

MakingChips is on the road again, and this week we visited Haas Automation in Oxnard, California. Mark Terryberry, the celebrity and face of Haas' YouTube channel, toured us around the massive headquarters.


Haas is the largest machine tool manufacturer in the United States, but where is their place in the market? We've talked about how manufacturing is going to shrink (meaning small shops getting more work), but large businesses are well-suited to help make amazing things happen for those small shops.


Small manufacturers are going to thrive as this industry moves forward, but the big manufacturers are key to their success. Haas is massive, and they're growing, but they are one of the many catalysts to the booming manufacturing economy.
