September 16th marked the 15th year that Pinnacle Converting Equipment of Charlotte, NC has been in business! Pinnacle formed in September 1995, following the acquisition of Chip Industries, which had produced custom and standard economical converting equipment since the mid-80’s. Further expansion came with the acquisition of AECO Industries in 1999. AECO had made custom automatic machining and assembly equipment since 1991. Our growth and success has been driven by our focused customer service and product development. Our end goal is to provide economical, productive, and reliable machine solutions to each customer while intending to optimize their productivity and capabilities.
Kathy and I are happy to say that it has been a remarkable pleasure to spend the last 15 years involved in the lives our Employees, Customers, and Suppliers. We have witnessed and supported the births of many children and new businesses as well as the deaths of a few good friends and once bright dreams. We started in the early dawn of the age of Internet, email, and cell phones and never looked back into the age before CAD and PLCs. We are honored to fill our corporate purpose of “Building machines that companies are built on” and our human purpose outlined by the command of our Lord Jesus, to love others as He has loved us. I’ve had a rare blessing to explore a dream and to get to do for a living something that I love. We praise God and thank everyone who crossed our path in some way these years and we look forward to more time serving those we know and meeting many more. – Bob Hillebrand, President, Pinnacle Converting Equipment, Inc.
