History

The proud history of Modig.

Modig Machine Tool was founded in 1947 in Virserum, Sweden. Right from the beginning, the focus was on machine building, and Modig’s lathes, universal drills and machining centers became well known all over the world.

The company’s high standards and innovative thinking led to several prestigious business deals. One of the more important in the history of Modig came in 1962 when Modig surpassed the competition and won an order from the Swedish Army for 170 lathes.

During the 1980s, Modig started to develop machining centers for high speed machining. Since its 1987 introduction of the first HSM, Modig has continuously developed and improved products for high speed machining.

And the history has just begun

Today, Modig is still family owned and renowned as one of the world’s leading companies in manufacturing aircraft production equipment. Its unwavering commitment to excellence is rewarded by orders from such prestigious companies as Airbus, SAAB, Embraer, Gulfstream, Bombardier, Spirit AVIC, Cessna and Sikorsky.

Modig means innovation. Embracing customization, Modig differentiates itself through an integrated solution encompassing problem solving, custom manufacturing, testing, training and ongoing technical and customer support. There is no room for compromise in quality at Modig.

However, this is just the beginning of the story. For us, the sky is not the limit. Modig spreads its wings to soar into the future.
