By the early years of the 21st century the situation with regard to the makers of "Emco" machine tools was rather complicated;
Profi Heimwerkermaschinen Gmbh was a management buyout of a part of Emco Maier Gmbh, involving 60+ employees and the Wolfseg manufacturing plant - one of the four Emco factories. Profi Heim took over the Unimat, the Compact Lathes and the Emco Woodworking machines - with Emco Maier making the Compact 5 lathe for marketing by Profi Heim. Unfortunately, as of July 2001, Profi Heim went out of business.
Emco Maier continued to produce conventional machine tools - i.e the Maximat Super 11 lathe, Emcomat 17S, 17D, 20D and 20E Toolroom lathes, the FB3, FB4 and FB 5 Toolroom Universal Mills with some of these, together with a variety of CNC training lathes - this arrangement continuing until today (2015).

In a nutshell, ProfiHeim took over the hobby machines and woodworkers while Emco Maier retained the more industrial machines as well as, of course, the CNC machines for use in industry and education.
The "Home" Emco Web Site is www.emco.co.at
Maier Gmbh and Profi-Heim. For CNC machines contact www.emco.co.uk
In the USA the American Edalstaal Company originally handled the machines, but no longer have anything to do with them.
The Unimat 4 and Compact 8E ("E" for East) were made in China.
