Fives Giddings & Lewis Celebrating 160th Anniversary
Fives Giddings & Lewis is celebrating its 160th anniversary with an open house event June 20, 2019, at its Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, headquarters. The event will be open to customers, suppliers and industry peers.
Visitors will participate in facility tours, machine demonstrations and a supplier expo as well as door prizes and food. Tours will start in the company’s “history hall.” Guests are asked to pre-register for the event.
As part of the year-long celebration of events in 2019, Fives Giddings & Lewis is searching for the oldest Giddings & Lewis machine still in production, as well as the machine that is located the furthest away from Fond du Lac. To submit a machine for consideration, or for more information on the contest, customers are asked to contact their regional sales manager or Kimberly Prophett (Kimberly.email@example.com).
A public open house will take place June 22, where locals can take a self-guided tour and participate in a community brat fry to the support the Fond du Lac United Way and Salute the Troops.

At IMTS 2014, you’ll see that a familiar U.S. machine tool brand is back.
Old-world craftsmanship combines with precision machining on a vertical machining center and Swiss-type lathe to produce some of the only U.S.-made mechanical wristwatch movements.
