our history

Superior Machine was founded by Kevin Van Loon in 1994. Kevin started with one CNC Lathe in a 7,000-square-foot building. By 1997 Kevin had grown his company to 6 CNC Lathes and 6 CNC Machine Centers with 18 employees. As the business grew, Kevin moved the company to an 84,000-square-foot facility right here in Albia, Iowa. Superior Machine continued to grow over the years becoming diversified in several industries. In January 2018 Kevin sold the company to his son Ben Van Loon. Ben took off with the opportunity and has continued to add business and machines to the operations.

With the continued growth, Superior Machine now has 144,000 square feet of space under one roof, and over 80 employees.
