About Innovative Equipment Solutions

Our passion is helping manufacturers maximize the value of their critical machining assets.

Our History

In 1994, we pioneered a software technology called XMC® that solved the interoperability problem between disparate software systems and machine controls. XMC has fueled our passion for over 20 years by making machines and people more productive in an increasingly connected world.

We are located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge national scenic area that borders Washington and Oregon. Our drive to develop and deliver world-class manufacturing solutions is (almost) matched by our enjoyment of the abundant outdoor recreational activities that surround us.
