About North South Machinery

North South Machinery, founded in 1985 by CEO Jim Swartzbaugh, quickly gained notoriety by becoming the West Coast distributor of Mitsubishi EDM products, and building a prestigious reputation in the non-traditional machining industry in the process.  Over the course of the next several decades, North South expanded its offerings and expertise to include a wide variety of conventional, non-traditional, and fabrication technologies.

While quality product lines and an expert sales team have long been cornerstones of the North South business model, it’s the un-ending desire to create raving fans of each one of its partners that has fueled its longevity.  NSM prides itself on not as a run of the mill machinery dealer, but as an investment company, investing in the success of each one of our partners across a wide range of industries.

With a company-wide passion for all things motorsport, North South Machinery knows that there is no podium celebration without an all-star team of people and the right equipment propelling you to the checkered flag.


Attitude + Performance = Successful Long Term Relationships

What Our Customers Say

“My new Mitsubishi Machine is making 120% more parts per day than two competitor machines were able to make in the same amount of time COMBINED. My day usually starts at 8:00AM, setup takes about 4 minutes, and the machine runs 17+ hours straight… so my day is done by about 8:04AM!”
California Wire EDM
“Dollar for dollar, Mitsubishi EDM equipment is the absolute best value. It’s extremely reliable, very accurate, and the finishes are great. We have an older Mits Wire EDM machine from the ‘90s that still runs and performs like the day it was first delivered from the factory.”
