About Us: Our Story

“We are market leaders in Tailored Cutting Solutions. Every machine sale marks the start of a long partnership with our clients. Our team is united behind a common purpose, to help unlock our customers’ growth.” - Luke Hansen-MacDonald, CEO, AAG.

AXYZ CNC Routers was founded in 1991 in Ontario, Canada. Partners Alf Zeuner and Gary Harvey saw an opportunity for modular machines that could be configured to customers’ needs. Success started in the signage and architectural cladding industries expanding over the next 30 years to include a multitude of industries.

In 1995, Richard Ward founded WARDJet in Ohio, USA focusing on modular waterjets that could be tailored to customers’ specific needs. WARDJet made a name for itself by taking on challenging customized projects, attracting industry-leading clients in space exploration, automotive, aerospace, construction, and energy.

The Hansen-MacDonald family became the new majority owners of AXYZ and WARDJet in 2017 and 2018 respectively. President Luke Hansen-MacDonald leads the incredibly talented team focused on developing and supporting CNC cutting solutions for customers worldwide.

AAG currently has factory direct offices or channel partners in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
