AXYZ Celebrating 30 Years of Innovation and Expertise


In 1991, Alf Zeuner and Gary Harvey founded AXYZ CNC Routers in Ontario, Canada. They saw a gap in the market for modular machines that could be configured to the customers’ needs. AXYZ found its niche in the signage and architectural cladding industries. Over the next 30 years, the company expanded its footprint across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific and launched an e-commerce parts site called CNCShop.

Canada-based AXYZ became a leading global manufacturer of CNC router and knife cutting systems. From their two-man beginning to now, AXYZ has manufactured, sold, installed, and supported well over 9,000 CNC machines.

With over 10,500 CNC routers across 113 countries, they serve all types of industries including but not limited to sign making, cabinetry, woodworking, solid surface, and many more. Every router is designed and built in Canada, and they pride themselves on delivering the best technology and service around. Their Canadian factory is set up to deliver machine customizations without long production lead times. With more than 366,918 standard machine configurations and over 30 years of experience, AXYZ specializes in matching machinery to customer’s unique needs and budgets.

Their manufacturing organization is process-driven to deliver the highest quality manufactured goods in the industry. They have developed partnerships with component manufacturers worldwide to deliver a high-quality service. Some of their strategic vendors include HSD and Elte (Spindles), THK (Bearing Systems and motion products), SMC (Pneumatics), Indalex (Aluminum Extrusions), and Teknic (Servo motor and drive products).

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic tested the team as the world economy came to a halt, pivoting the focus to supporting Essential Industries. Parent company AAG’s CNC machines were used to manufacture millions of essential products, including face shields, mask filters, COVID barriers, and hospital beds, to list a few. This was only made possible through the incredible tenacity of the individuals who make up the AAG family.
