Delta Machinery has been owned by Minnesota-based Pentair Inc. since 1981 and is a member of its Tool Group of businesses.

When announcing Delta Machinery as the 2004 Partner-of-the-Year Award winner, Henderson said, “Every year since 1994, WMIA’s distributor members have nominated woodworking machinery manufacturers and importers who exemplify the spirit of partnership in working with them. Nominees are ranked in five important support areas: financial, sales and product, service and parts, marketing support and training. WMIA’s marketing committee distributor members tabulate the nominations, calculate the total value of the rankings and factor in other considerations such as the number of distributor liaisons. The winner of the
Partner-of-the-Year Award is selected based on these quantitative ratings.”
