Kingsbury's manufacturing center has been relocated to 1600 Lexington Avenue ("Optimation Place") in Rochester, NY, capitalizing on the area's strong base of manufacturing. By joining with Optimation, Kingsbury has broadened the technologies it offers. Kingsbury continues to support the installed base of thousands of Kingsbury machines around the world. Daily, the Kingsbury parts department processes and ships orders for parts. Many Kingsbury machines have been in steady production for decades, proving the durability of a Kingsbury product. Kingsbury service technicians are also available to remanufacture any Kingsbury machine, regardless of age, condition or geographic location. 


Using their proven designs, Kingsbury adapts the world's leading technologies to produce agile manufacturing and assembly systems for global competition. Parts machined and assembled by Kingsbury systems are in the cars you drive, the jets you fly on, and in the appliances you use every day. For decades when customers came to Kingsbury, they received the solutions they needed to produce the world's best products.
