The story of MODIG starts deep into the forests in the south of Sweden in 1947. The four brothers of Modig founded the company and began to build machines in Virserum, Sweden. When the company’s lathes, universal drills, and machining centers became more well known worldwide, a woman ran the company, something unique for the time. Ulla Modig was an amazing woman, a true source of inspiration and genuine in the famous MODIG family spirit. Time goes by, and when the 2nd generation takes over, Percy Modig, the company reaches excellent success within the aerospace industry.

MODIG Machine Tool has a long history characterized by many innovations that have shaped the development of machine tools over the years. The introduction of the first computerized machine in 1982 marked the beginning of a new era. MODIG turned the focus and left the off-the-shelf devices behind and introduced the first high-speed machining center in the world in 1987. The year after MODIG launched the world’s first extrusion machine with rotary tables, Profile Line, a powerful best-in-class machine with incredible speeds and feeds, making MODIG the company with the most extensive knowledge in extrusion machining today.

Today, the 3rd generation MODIG, David Modig, runs the company and we are still well-known for our technical ingenuity. In the last years, MODIG has set a new standard for machining, first, with the RigiMill, which holds the world record in material removal. Then with the Inverted machining centers, the next generation of machining.
