Instead of purchasing a planing machine from an existing manufacturer, he decided to build his own in his workshop on the family farm. Through the 1940's several progressively larger factories were occupied as the demand for Powermatic products grew. In 1958, Powermatic took a unique step in the industry by establishing its own 50,000 square foot foundry.
In April of 1986, Powermatic was purchased and operated as a division of DeVlieg-Bullard, Inc. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. This enabled the company to keep tight control on the precision and quality of its castings and to ensure that the Meehanite ™ process, still in use today, would put the company at the forefront of the woodworking machinery manufacturing process for years to come.


Although owned by a Fortune 500 Company, Powermatic continued to be influenced by the local community and run in autonomous fashion.
In October of 1999 Powermatic was purchased by WMH, who already owned Jet Tools, and Performax Products. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).
Smith decided to leave the lumber industry and engage full time in the manufacturing business.
Smith named his company Powermatic, and moved his business into an old blacksmith shop in town. Smit'’s sons, bought land on the edge of town and built a 38,000 square foot facility specifically tailored to their operations.


These three companies along with the Wilton Tool Company were grouped together to form the WMH Tool Group as we are known today.
He introduced several new products including sanding machines, drill presses, and the industry's latest invention, the Tilting Arbor Table Saw.
Smith used the money to build four more planers, which he offered for sale to others he knew in the lumber industry.
