In 1968, Edward Humston and Gerald Roch had an idea and founded Hurco in Indianapolis, Indiana. The following year, the company introduced Autobend®, the first numerically controlled press brake gauging system – and an industry leader was born. After becoming a publicly-held corporation in 1971, Hurco expanded overseas with the founding of Hurco Europe Ltd. in the U.K. Moving further into worldwide industry leadership, "conversational programming" was introduced to the shop floor in 1976. Through the 1980s, Hurco continued to grow, utilizing new ideas to address a quickly changing business, from the development of the interactive, twin-screen, UltiMax CNC control, to acquiring a patent for its Interactive Machining System methodology. During this period the company expanded its market presence in Europe by establishing operations in Germany and France. Finally in 1989, Hurco successfully completed a common stock offering. The 1990s were challenging for Hurco and the global industry at large. In 1995, Hurco rose to the occasion, showing the benefits of its three-year restructuring plan by lowering costs, improving efficiency, and expanding its product line. Today, with its improved financial profile, Hurco continues to invest in bringing innovative products to the marketplace.

Largest Industry Trade Show Proves Successful for Hurco:
INDIANAPOLIS—Hurco's participation in the 26th International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) held at Chicago's McCormick Place September 6-13 proved beneficial with a 35% increase in sales leads compared to IMTS 2004. Hurco focused its energy on showing shop owners how Hurco can put them in control of productivity so they can maximize efficiency and improve their shop's bottom line. Hurco's new control software, WinMax, drew the most attention. Two-thirds of the 1,800 customers who entered the Hurco booth experienced the power of WinMax Control software by participating in a hands-on, one-on-one demonstration. WinMax will span the entire Hurco product line of machining and turning centers as the company's standard control when it is released in early 2007. WinMax is the most significant product introduction since Hurco revolutionized the CNC machine tool industry 22 years ago with the launch of its user-friendly dual screen graphical control that brought streamlined programming to shop floors around the world. "I was pleased to see how many customers embraced WinMax and quickly understood its value. For Hurco, WinMax will play a pivotal role in continuing to develop new technologies while taking advantage of trends in commercial technologies that enable our customers to realize measurable productivity gains," said Jim Fabris, President and COO of Hurco Companies, Inc.
