The company is a Swiss-Type lathe machine shop that produces proprietary metal products for a variety of customers in industries ranging from firearms, medical devices, solenoids, and engineering controls. The company maintains consistent quality standards and is ISO 9001:2015 certified.

With a refined process and dedicated employees, few job shops manufacture the pins and other products that this company specializes in. The company features proprietary programs and tooling for all their repeat orders, making up 85% of revenue. Based in a 11,000-square foot, leased facility, this incredible opportunity features 17 4-9 axis sliding headstock lathes, all with automatic bar loaders and 5 Escomatic coil fed machines.

The owner is willing to provide reasonable and customary transition assistance to a new owner and is open to continuing to offer additional support on a consulting basis following the training period.
