Tormach Culture

The Tormach Culture

Tormach company culture

There is a reason our employees have an infectious smile, and only part of it is because of the regular lunches, fresh fruit, and relaxed environment. While Tormach has been in the industry for decades, our ‘start-up’ mentality makes you feel at home. You will help us take this creativity to the next level by becoming a thought entrepreneur while we support your ideas with technical know-how.

100% Employee Owned

Being employee owned, every voice and person matters when it comes to connecting our completely unique offerings to the maker community – whether they be robot-dueling performers or the hobbyists next door.

Tormach Makers

Clients aren’t the only ones who like building and creating – our team is cut from the same block. We are our tools’ biggest fans and, if you are just as excited about the possibilities behind each machine, you will fit right in.

Tormach Innovation

The ingenuity of Tormach employees was modeled first by its founders, Greg Jackson and Ed Korn, who created the concept of personal CNC machines after noticing an unmet need for smaller, more affordable equipment featuring professional capabilities. While imitators have tried mirroring this vision, Tormach’s focus on lowering the barrier to CNC by making the equipment more accessible has made them the leader in this niche market.

This innovation mindset continues, as Tormach pioneers in CNC equipment with products like:

This affordable coolant system for CNC machines requires less nozzle repositioning by connecting software with an automated hose.

The Tormach-exclusive software offers an approachable, professional-grade interface for CNC machine control.

Tormach’s compact and affordable mill, the PCNC 440 is perfect for anybody that wants to do real cutting, but doesn’t have a lot of space.

This machine accessory converts a mill into a CNC chucker lathe without the cost or space a standard CNC lathe demands.

To share this expertise, we work with student groups through STEM programs, host educational seminars at our annual open house, connect college students with real-life experiences through internships, and, sponsor scholarships.

Madison Area

Sandwiched between Chicago and the Twin Cities, Madison is one of the biggest cities in Wisconsin. This beautiful community is where the arts meet science meet the great outdoors, and it is located minutes from Tormach. Never been? Here is why you will love it:

A Great Place To Live

Madison is consistently named one of the country’s best places to live, work, and play. From our numerous festivals and fairs to our outstanding Framer’s Market and lively downtown, Madison offers something for everyone. Shopping, dinning, sports, and recreation, all help to make this one of the best places to live in the US, but you don’t have to take our word for it, see for yourself.

Art & Technology Meet

Whether you’re into techy networking events, like the Forward Festival, or you’re a lover of contemporary art, Madison has an eclectic combo of tech and art. Named one of the best music scenes in the country, Madison hosts an array of venues with regular art showings and musical events, all while feeding off some of the nation’s top technological talent to keep the city on the cutting edge of the future. All of that, and the fact that Madison is home to a quickly-growing assortment of microbrews – it is Wisconsin, after all.

Education At Its Finest

Madison is proud to be home to a world class university. Ranked as one of the top schools in the country, University of Wisconsin-Madison is known world-wide for its diversity and excellence in education and research. Madison offers all the vibrancy and excitement one would expect from one of the best college towns in the US.

The Great Outdoors

Madison is one of only five cities in the US to reach platinum-level status as a bicycle friendly community. With hiking and biking trials throughout the city as well as lakes and rivers for fishing, boating and kayaking, Madison is the perfect location for any outdoor enthusiast.

Family Friendly Town

Madison, with its friendly atmosphere and diverse cultural offerings prides itself on being a great place to raise a family. Our free zoo and national ranked children’s museum are only two of the great family friendly attractions Madison and the surrounding communities have to offer.

Beyond Madison

Madison is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Southern Wisconsin. From the amazing beauty of our state parks and rural highways to the family fun locations like Wisconsin Dells and House on The Rock or the architectural history of Taliesin, Wisconsin’s small towns are some of the most unique and friendliest places to live and work you will ever find.
