The Northfield line of woodworking machinery was established in Northfield, Minnesota, in 1920. Steady growth occurred through the years as the Northfield line became the leader of intermediate and heavy duty woodworking machinery. The Northfield line was the first to adapt hydraulics to woodworking machinery.

The Northfield line of woodworking machinery is currently owned and operated by Northfield Machinery Builders Inc., a diversified manufacturer of custom machinery.

Northfield woodworking machinery is made available from distributors throughout North America and other world markets.

Part availability for current and discontinued machinery is excellent and is backed up by factory service technicians that can handle everything from tune-ups to complete rebuilds, both on site or at the factory.

On new machine sales, the company encourages the distributor and customer to work with the factory during and after the machine selection process.
