The back story of our Take the Leap "model"

Posted by Maggie Smith on Apr 1, 2016 11:41:33 AM

Chris Bohn didn't intend to be a Hurco model. It was a total stroke of luck...for Hurco anyway. Chris has been a CNC programmer for 15 years and ran Hurco machines at Hallmark Tool and Gage in Michigan for five years (hence, the Hurco shirt he is wearing for the jump).

Hurco in the West

Posted by Maggie Smith on Mar 30, 2016 11:35:45 AM

Throughout North America, Hurco partners with distributors to sell and service our CNC machines. We are proud these family-owned businesses have chosen to represent our products. Since Hurco is located in the heartland (Indianapolis, Indiana), our sales team travels a great deal to make sure all distributors have the information and tools they need to represent Hurco. We are so appreciative of our distributor in Colorado (Foothills Machinery) for hosting us and the Hurco distributors from the western United States this week. It was great to break bread with these professionals who do such a great job educating shops of all sizes in their respective territories about the benefits of Hurco CNC machines and explaining how Hurco CNC technology makes shops more productive and profitable.

The winner of Hurco's Colts tickets.

Posted by Maggie Smith on Dec 18, 2015 12:24:16 PM

Since the international headquarters of Hurco has been right here in Indianapolis since Gerald Roch and E.L. Humston started Hurco in 1968, we decided to officially cheer for our home team by being an official sponsor! Each home game, we send an email to people in our Indiana region to enter a drawing for tickets to the Colts game.

And the winner is...(cue drum roll)

We held our drawing for Sunday's Colts game against Tampa Bay. The winner was Don Dumoulin of Precise Mold in Columbus, Indiana. As a side note: we realized the southern part of the state has won every drawing so far for Colts tickets. We presumed it was because more people from that region entered. After reviewing the lists, it appears they are just luckier than the northern part of the state since entries from northern Indiana outnumber those from southern Indiana 3 to 1. Something to ponder.

Hurco and the NFL

Posted by Maggie Smith on Oct 4, 2015 5:41:00 PM

Based in Indianapolis since 1968, this year Hurco decided to partner with our hometown football team: The Indianapolis Colts. We have signs, ads, etc., but the best part of the sponsorship is the fun fan experience we can share with machinists and shop owners throughout Indiana.

The students at L.C. Webster bring sunshine to Hurco.

You Made Our Day Webster Students!

The students at L.C. Webster school in St. Paul, Minnesota, certainly brightened our day. They sent us thank you notes and hand-made posters. It would have made us smile any day, but it was an especially wonderful way to start the morning on this cloudy, cold, dreary day.

The class went on a field trip to a machine shop and their teacher thought they would get more out of the experience if they had some understanding of CNC machines before they went. We sent them Hurco catalogs (and some pens and stickers). 

In addition to the artwork, we received handwritten thank you notes. Morgan said she uses her Hurco pen each day to do her homework when she's riding the bus home. She thanked us for taking time out of our work day to send the class brochures, stickers, and pens. Leah said she liked getting to see all of the machines on the field trip and the parts the people make on the machines--especially the aluminum part shaped like their state that had a panda on it!

Hats off to the entire L.C. Webster school, but especially to their teacher for sharing the world of manufacturing with these young students!
