Standard Mill Machinery Corp. is continuing the one hundred
year tradition of its predecessor, Standard Mill Supply Co., of
producing, customizing, and refurbishing winding machines
for textile and wire businesses.
David W. Austin purchased this unique business from former
co-owner Arthur H. Lavoie in October of 2004, now located in
West Warwick, Rhode Island.
As company president, David brings years of textile machinery
experience, coupled with extensive customer service understanding
in his previous position as vice-president of Standard Mill.
Standard Mill Machinery Corp. continues to focus on
customizing and rebuilding Leesona winders. The winders can
be purchased as a single or multiple spindle configuration. This
will allow you, the customer, to wind cotton, wool, wire, ribbon,
foil, film, fiberglass, Kevlar, graphite aero-space composites,
and materials for the medical field.
Originally called "Universal Winders," the Leesona 50's were
designed to wind an incredible variety of packages - all kinds
of tubes, cones spools, and coreless tubes - as well as various
types of materials.
Because they are relatively simple, converting Leesona 50's for
different packages and materials is quick and easy, a matter of
fifteen or twenty minutes, compared to one to two days for
automated, high production winders.
The 50's are also in demand for winding when low up-front
costs are a priority.

and owner, David W. Austin
