Electrical Control CabinetGiddings & Lewis Machine Tools is a machine tool company that has been in business since 1895. G&L designed and built all their own industrial control equipment and always stayed at the forefront of technology. In 2000, G&L made the decision to focus on core competencies and to begin outsourcing many of the manufacturing tasks previously completed in-house, which included panel building.

PanelTEK was established in September of 2000 in Fond du Lac, WI by the G&L manager of applications engineering (Dale Gamberini). PanelTEK started by building industrial control panels exclusively for G&L, but slowly started building panels and providing engineering services for other customers as well. PanelTEK quickly established an industry reputation for high quality craftsmanship, on time deliveries, and attention to detail. Currently, PanelTEK serves the machine tool, food & beverage, oil & gas, environmental, paper converting, water treatment, and pharmaceutical industries.


PanelTEK started in a 7,500 square foot facility, but in 2006 built a new 20,000 square foot facility. The new facility includes a 4 ton overhead crane, semi dock, test facilities (for any voltage), and spacious work cells. Due to a demand for more capacity, a 10,000 square foot addition was added in 2010, to bring the current building to 30,000 square feet. At this time, air conditioning was added to the entire manufacturing area.

In May 2013, PanelTEK was sold to Stillwater Partners, which is an investment company located in Milwaukee, WI. This transition was seamless to employees and customers. The same assembly and management teams stayed in place, with Mark Kallas being the president of PanelTEK. The philosophy
at PanelTEK has always stayed the same, which is providing excellent service to our customers and building high quality industrial control assemblies.
