Robert Stevenson, President & CEO

 

Eastman Machine Company is a cutting machine manufacturer, providing custom engineered solutions and innovative technologies for a variety of industries. Eastman offers the industry's widest range of classic, hand-held and manually-operated fabric cutting machines; as well as a comprehensive line of fully automated, computerized cutting and plotting systems. Manufactured with the highest quality materials, built to precise specifications, and subject to rigorous testing, Eastman's line of cutting systems have been setting the standard for over a century. Matched to specific customer needs, Eastman has a solution for virtually every cutting requirement.

 

More than 125 years ago in Buffalo, Eastman introduced the first electric cloth-cutting machine, which allowed the clothing industry to evolve from the manual drudgery of cutting to a modern operation. Today, the company continues to deliver engineering-based solutions that make real differences to facilities using new and high-tech materials as well as traditional textiles. At Eastman, we achieve our vision through the participation and energy of our worldwide network of sales, support, and engineering staff. We develop and manufacture our machines in tandem with the industries we serve, operating as a comprehensive resource for the cutting room. As a fifth-generation, family-operated business, Eastman is devoted to excellence. Our promise to craft reliable, quality, American-made solutions means that your Eastman product is guaranteed to perform and ensure your production requirements are realized.

With our excellent reputation built into every machine, you can rest assured knowing you’re not just buying a product — you’re partnering with a team dedicated to your productivity and performance.
