Auto-Turn was originally formed in 1983 by Ronnie McMurray and Dwain Keel with just a couple of machines and determination.  In the late 1990's Auto-Turn first qualified for the ISO 9001:2008 certification and this certification has been maintained since that date.

Pictured from left to right are Dwain Keel, Sharon & Ronnie McMurray and Gary Shotton. In May of 2006, Gary Shotton purchased 100% of the Auto-Turn stock and increased the building size from 15,000 sq. ft. to 25,000 sq. ft. Several new machines have been purchased since 2006 along with a new network of computers for the office.

A central focus of Auto-Turn is efficiency. To gain the necessary efficiency, a network of new computers were installed in the office and we began the process of converting with office to a paperless environment. The purchase and installation of E2/Shop Tech software is being used to maintain real-time control such things as warehouse inventory, documenting the consistent calibration of measuring instruments, payroll, machine routers, cost estimates, and much more.

In the fall of 2008, a CMM arm was purchased to bring the quality department into a new arena of quality. Pictured left is the owner, Gary Shotton, and his wife of more than 35 years. Even though Gary has the most responsibility for Auto-Turn, it is definitely at combined effort.

Gary and Cindy also continue their Christian missions efforts by traveling several times per year to under-developed nations on Business Mission Trips. Gary is the Founder and President of Global Business Success Foundation, which is focused on mobilizing Christian businesspeople to use their business skills to mentor businesspeople in under-developed nations.
