Methods Machine Tools completes acquisition of Koch Machine Tool

Jan. 6, 2022

Effective immediately, Methods Machine Tools Inc. has assumed ownership of Koch Machine Tools' facilities in Texas, completing its intent to purchase announced in October 2021. Existing Koch customers can now engage Methods for ongoing and new purchase ordering and services.

“This is a big day for Methods. We open the New Year formally welcoming the terrific Koch team and  their legacy of technical and service expertise to Methods. This expansion is an important step in our long-term investment in the Texas/Louisiana region to accelerate our national growth and bring our industry-leading portfolio to more customers,” said Mark Wright, Methods president and CEO.

As previously announced, Mike Koch will retain the title of Co-General Manager of these locations for a period of three years to facilitate the acquisition.

“In joining Methods, we can expand on our more than 50 years of business in this territory with greater investment in Texas and Louisiana, with the same focus to help our customers solve and service their most complex business needs,” Koch said.

Don Miller, a 35-year industry veteran and most recently general manager of Methods’ Illinois and  Wisconsin offices, will transition to Texas as the other co-general manager to oversee the expansion of the territory.

“I am thrilled to welcome Koch Machine team members to Methods and for them to join us at a very exciting time for the Texas/Louisiana region. Methods has the right products for these markets. In  addition to harnessing the Koch legacy, we will aggressively pursue additional talented sales, service, and application engineering personnel so we can help existing and new customers realize the value of their partnership with Methods,” Miller said.

As part of the acquisition, Methods will represent select Weiler machine tools within its expanding product portfolio.
