Nuformex – Not Your Average Machine Shop!

Nuformex Inc. emerges from the manufacturing division of Transformix Engineering Inc., offering 20 years of manufacturability expertise in Precision Machining for the Automation Industry.

In December of 2018, Transformix Engineering’s Intellectual Property, including its disruptive, high precision, high-performance advanced manufacturing technology CNCAssembly® (now ATS’s Symphoni™) were acquired by ATS Automation Tooling.

Key to Transformix’s success was the machine shop team led by Clay Crosby, Paul Steele and George Brunner. Upon completion of Transfomix projects, the team re-emerged under its own corporation, Nuformex Inc., offering services and expertise that fill a gap within the automation industry. Precision automation equipment like CNCAssembly® requires exceptional machinists who understand tight tolerances and intricate parts. These skills are intrinsic and transcend all manufacturing industries that demand quality and accuracy in machining.

 “When creating Nuformex, we saw that there was a unique opportunity to collaborate with our Production Partners who were looking for a machine shop that went above and beyond” remarked Paul Steele, Manufacturing Manager and Partner in Nuformex Inc. “We knew with our combined knowledge in manufacturability, on-demand prototyping, quick turn-around, design intent and working with R&D teams and Engineers; we were more than ‘just’ a machine shop. We understood the intricacies of helping businesses grow and getting their products to market quickly.”

To highlight this point, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nuformex was enlisted by a global automation company to tool a machine that assembled cartridges for COVID testing. The Nuformex team programmed, machined and produced one hundred and seventy-four part numbers in 8 weeks, while still maintaining deliverables for their other clients.

“We’re about forming relationships with our clients, and we see ourselves as part of their production team,” said Clay Crosby, Operations Manager and Nuformex Partner, “We are passionate about what we do, and it shows through our team’s dedication in meeting our clients’ requests, no matter the challenge. In every step of the process, from RFQ to parts integration, we ensure continuity in our partners’ supply chains. Whether your delivery requirements are JIT, or you’re looking at a stocking program, we’ve got your back.”

With a history firmly rooted in the development of automation machines under the Transformix banner, Nuformex understands the principles of machine building. They recognize the pressures on North American manufacturing and the innovation & creativity required to be successful.


Nuformex brings 20 years of expertise in manufacturability and machining within the Automation, Energy, Transportation and Consumer Goods sectors. We offer on-demand prototyping, small production runs of 1 to 1000 and inventory stock arrangements to meet our clients’ demands. Whether build to print or build to spec, we have the experience and flexibility to bring your projects in on time and on budget. | Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn


“Crisis Averted! Behind The Scenes Front-Line Workers.”


When COVID19 pandemic first entered our lives, no one knew how this would be our new ‘normal.’

With social distancing, businesses shutting down, continuously sanitizing our hands as our lives depended upon it and wearing masks soon became a daily part of our lives.

Very quickly, government officials reached out to companies to produce more masks, testing kits and hand sanitizers, which hit the manufacturing industry like wildfire. Suddenly, people who built businesses producing their own products began to switch over their automation to answering the ‘call of the people.’ One of our Production Partners was the first to step up to the plate, and they enlisted Nuformex to come along for the ride!

Over a span of 8 weeks, our team programmed, machined and produced one-hundred and seventy-four part numbers for our Production Partner, contracted to build a machine that assembled cartridges for COVID testing. Not only did we deliver on-time and on-budget, but we also met the demands of our other Production Partners. Our Nuformex team never wavered in getting the work done on weekends and into the wee hours of the night. Dedication to helping others is our mantra!


“You Want It When? Challenge Accepted!”


You know the expression ‘It’s a small world’? Well, we experienced this first hand with one of our clients.

One of our clients, an engineer at General Electric (GE), spoke with his twin brother, who worked in Brazil for Syngenta’s global agricultural company.

Now Syngenta was faced with a dilemma! Over the years, they spent millions of dollars working with other advanced manufacturing companies that only resulted in failures that had to be scrapped.

Their challenge was trying to cut and separate the nodes from sugarcane without destroying the plant. However, each time they tried different machines by other manufacturers, the plant would be destroyed. 

Enter Nuformex, the team that machined all the manufacturing parts for Transformix. Our GE client told his Syngenta twin brother, that they should give us all call as we never back down from a challenge. Long story short, we delivered EXACTLY what they needed, much to their surprise. 

We had no previous experience working in the agricultural sector. Do we have years of experience working in the Advanced Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, Energy, Life Science, and Transportation sectors? Yes, we do! Did we back down from a new opportunity? Absolutely not!
