Dear Ritter / Evans Customers:

Nearly 18 months ago, we took over the Evans Machinery line. Since then we have moved the company, updated the machines, cut lead times by over 50% and started stocking programs with dealers around the country.

Today, we are excited to announce that we will be embarking on a similar venture to reintroduce Ritter machines to the market. As you know, Ritter Manufacturing Inc closed its doors nearly a year ago. We aquired the remaining assets of Ritter and moved them to our Holland, Michigan manufacturing location.

Note: For confirmation of this action and the discontinuation of involvement from Ase Stornetta, click here.

The new company, Ritter Machinery Company, will provide the woodworking market with Ritter machines and spare parts moving forward. This is, of course, will be a process with us starting with the most common Ritter machines and spares. From there, we will follow the needs of the market. Evans Machinery will continue to operate as it has and we do not expect any change in our lead times due to this acquisition.

Moving forward, here are a few links you will need to know.

  1. Check out our new website at for an initial look at the machines we will be offering. To download an initial PDF brochure,click here.

Again, we are thankful for your interest in our Evans line of machines and we feel that the Ritter line can be an opportunity for us to continue to serve companies like yours moving forward.
