Celebrating our 40th year in the manufacturing machining business. We are a CNC machine job shop. Which means we don't have a product line but we offer a machining service to other manufacturers in machining their engineered and designed products. We have a diverse customer base from the Energy sector (natural gas and oil), to Aero space, to Industrial machinery, to the Medical industry. We use CNC turning lathes, and CNC machining mills to shape and form metal products for our customers. A very cool fact - CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining was invented right here in Traverse City in the 1950's by John Parsons and Frank Stulen. It was the start of what has been claimed to be a New Industrial Revolution by this historic event.
