Zigler's Zigler's Machine & Metal Works was founded by John Zigler in 2003 to be a small family owned business with just a few machines so that he could teach his children what it meant to work with their hands and minds. It quickly became apparent with the customer base asking more of them than what he and his oldest son Zeb could handle. He hired outside the family and the company started making a name for itself. From their humble beginnings of a 1,000 square foot building in in downtown Dixon, IL, to a newly constructed 3,200 square foot building in 2006 on the farm that has been the family for 179 years. In 2009, running out of space again, John decided to add on. Construction began in 2010 and the 4,800 square foot addition was completed. Hiring and buying new equipment continued over the next few years as the business continued to grow and the 8,000 square foot building began to burst at the seams. Realizing that if he wanted to continue to grow, the business would have to be moved to another location. At the beginning of 2017 there was a 43,000 square foot building on 86 acres available in Dixon. The purchase was made and now with ALL of our equipment moved into the 629 Palmyra Road address, we are open for business!!
