In April of 2005, Kenrie, Inc. purchased the rights to be the sole OEM provider of replacement parts for machine tools for various product lines that had been produced by Micromatic Textron. These products primarily consisted of Micromatic Honing Machines, B&T Die-cast and Trim Press equipment, Ex-Cell-O Injection Molding and Structural Foam equipment and Buss Planer Equipment. Since January 2006, Kenrie has proudly offered custom-engineered honing/microsizing machines designed to process engine blocks, conn-rods, gears (bore & face honing), compressors, liners, valves, or anything that requires the honing process.
