Willis Machinery Since 1963

We’d like to say thank you to all of our past, current, and future partners. This couldn’t have happened without you.

In 1963, Willis Boice started offering Solberga Upright Drills and Bergonzi Radial Drills, along with a variety of work holding items. Fast forward to 2020 and Willis Machinery is your one stop shop for a wide array of CNC and conventional lathes and milling machines, upright and radial drilling machines, and surface and cylindrical grinders. Whether you are a multi-billion dollar manufacturer or a smaller job shop, Willis Machinery will meet your needs and surpass your expectations.

From the beginning we have always looked to build high quality long term relationships with all of our vendors, distributors, and customers. These strong bonds have been a key to our mutual long-term strategy and success.

Over the last 60, our people have traveled the Country listening to what customers’ wants and needs have been. After acquiring this insight, it is only then that we’ve gone out and traveled the world to find the best solutions for these needs and then bring those solutions to the market.

With partners like you, we hope and believe we can be successful for another 60 years. We are very grateful to all of you who have placed your trust in us to provide outstanding service and equipment. Your challenges and feedback have pushed us to continually improve. The bonds that we’ve developed are a tremendous source of strength and knowledge that will continue to guide us toward shared prosperity in the future.

We look forward to hearing from you.


Peter Boice, President, WILLIS MACHINERY & TOOLS

"Probably the best thing next to the Willis products is your team’s knowledge of the products you sell. If parts are needed and not on your shelf, the expedite process is very efficient. Willis Machinery provides superior sales and service with a high quality product."

Jim Nickel, Machine tool Manager | Rex Supply | Houston, TX

"Willis Machinery has been the most reliable machinery sales outfit we've ever dealt with. Their machines consistently perform well above industry standards. They don't change manufactures, or machine designs constantly like most of their competitors, thus keeping parts availability at an optimum level. Dealing with their service department is like none other. You contact them and immediately get a price or the answer you were looking for. Most of their competition has to order machines, thus making for long waiting times, not Willis, They've always had the machines in stock that I've ordered. If you're looking for an outstanding machine, and a company that stands behind them, then Willis Machinery is the outfit you're looking for."

Mike Zinn, Lee’s Machinery | Perry, OH
