Since its foundation in 1991, STYLE has focused on the simple production of single piece and small series. STYLE is a manufacturer of turning and milling machines, from development to end product. From control to service entirely in-house. This makes STYLE a well-known and reliable supplier for companies in machine building, prototyping and maintenance.
The history of STYLE
1991 – 2012; STYLE High Tech
From step system to fully fledged CNC machines
The origin of STYLE in Bunschoten starts with the purchase of High Tech Nederland from Amsterdam by the Van Halteren Group from Bunschoten. STYLE High Tech at the time sold controls under Atari for hand-held drills and lathes. The control based on Atari 1040Ste was converted to a control under Windows. This was the first step towards the development of the simplest control system in the world. The aim of the STYLE control is to program simple but also complex products in the easiest possible visual way, which are mainly produced in single pieces and small series. Every year, the software team adds new functionalities to the control software. This control software is supplied on our own STYLE CNC lathes and milling machines.
Style High Tech (manufacturer of CNC turning and milling machines) from Bunschoten started in 1991 and has grown with the production of CNC and Teach-in lathes (since 1999) and milling machines (2002). The unique STYLE control was introduced in 1995. Already at the introduction in, the STYLE Control was distinguished by optimal ease of use and simplicity. In the segment where STYLE operates, this mainly concerns companies that turn or mill single pieces and small series: companies that distinguish themselves by flexibility and fast changeover times.
In 2012 STYLE became part of the Nivora Group (known from SafanDarley, Bewo and Dynobend). STYLE is with a group of companies that belong to the top of the Dutch machine construction. The Nivora Group attaches great value to unique technology and encourages employees to develop themselves personally. The aim is the sustainable development and retention of high-quality industrial knowledge and employment in the Netherlands.

The dealer network has been expanded even further and the STYLE machines are also for sale in Bosnia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Israel and Hungary.
Development and customers come first
Good innovations often arise in practice, based on what customers ask for. Thanks to customer demand, the range has expanded to include machining centers, a double column milling machine and conventional lathes. With our extensive experience, we have developed an ultramodern range of machines that excel in reliability, price and ease of use.
STYLE works with its customers and employees on progressive and simple machines on a daily basis. Equipped with the unique STYLE control, the lathes and milling machines are accessible to the novice operator and expanded with various complex functionalities for the experienced CNC operator. You can start machining on the STYLE machines within one day of training.
In addition to our head office in the Netherlands, STYLE also has its own offices in the Czech Republic, Poland and Belgium. This gives the European manufacturing industry the opportunity to experience our machines and the simplicity of the unique CNC control software for themselves. All machines are built in the Netherlands and exported to customers abroad.
In addition to our own foreign offices, we have STYLE Demo Centers in ten different countries in Europe. These Demo Centers give the dealer exclusivity to the sale of STYLE machines. The dealer is officially recognized and receives direct support from the Netherlands. In addition, their staff is specially trained to work with STYLE machines. Not only to give demonstrations but also to put the machines into use and repair when necessary. Many dealers have one or more STYLE demo machines, so that potential customers can experience and test STYLE machines at a relatively short distance.
