C WWC, which stands for Central Wisconsin Woodworking Corp., is a
full-service manufacturer, o;ering estimating, design/engineering and
project management, in addition to the fabrication, ;nishing and installation of its products. Founded in 1989 as Fletcher Woodworking, located in
Wausau, WI, it was in 1991 that Fletcher Woodworking incorporated under
its current name. In November, 2016 C WWC moved to Weston, Wisconsin.
Today, CWWC has its main plant, 60,000 square feet, in Weston,

wide range of materials we use. That we see longer tool life from their
tools in addition to high-quality cuts is a great bonus and appreciated,”
What sets CW WC apart from the competition is its blend of speed and
high quality. “We are very good at getting things in and out of engineering
to production with a very quick turnaround, producing a high-quality
product,” Fletcher said.
“We work with a lot of architects and clients doing cutting edge
designs. In our line of work you have to be able to think outside of the
box. Vortex Tool is a problem solver, too. If a customer can’t ;nd the right
cutting tool needed for a project they will work to custom design what is
needed,” he added.
A lean manufacturer, C WWC combines craftsmanship with high
technology in the manufacture of its architectural products and furniture.
The company’s Schelling beam saw, Busellato point-to-point CNC, Biesse
Rover CNC router, Weeke/Homag boring and dowel insertion machine, and
Holz-Her Accura edgebander, along with other equipment in the plant, are
equipped with high-tech tooling from Vortex Tool.
C WWC has been a customer of Vortex since the tooling manufacturer
opened in 1992. “For us, the quality of cut is very important. We work with
a wide variety of materials, including engineered cores, particleboard,
MDF and plywood as well as solids, acrylics, polyester, PVCs, non-ferrous
metals, aluminum, and more. We put Vortex tooling to the test with the
C WWC’s work often sets new standards, as highlighted on the company’s website, CW WC.org. Among the award-winning projects in the company’s portfolio is the MileNorth boutique hotel on Chicago’s Magni;cent
Mile, owned by Destination Hotels and Resorts. For the project, CW WC
designed, produced and installed a herringbone ceiling and ;replace
wall for the hotel’s lobby made of rift quartered, plain and ;at cut walnut
veneer. A check-in desk was fabricated using antique steamer trunks and
luggage and the company’s work was also featured in the bar, co;ee bar,
internet bar, market area and TV wall. C WWC also created a “cityscape”
wall of Chicago using lacquered panels and backlit acrylic boxes.
“Having quality tooling is very important to us and crucial in the kind
of work we do,” said Fletcher. “The fact that the Vortex tools have longevity
is secondary to us, but a great feature as well.”
