In early 1960, Zenon Mocarski, my father-in-law started this company in the basement of his home. At that time he was employed at a large federal contractor working mainly on the jobs no one else wanted to do. The tolerances combined with the geometry of these parts made them extremely difficult to machine. To complete these parts required innovative processing along with a high degree of skill and a little finesse. Zenon saw an opportunity to start his own business focusing on these types of projects. Moving out of the basement and into the garage he continued to work both jobs until he had established himself. Recruiting the help of his brother, Joseph, the company began its journey. Upgrading from the garage to numerous small shops, the company grew to occupy an 18,000 square foot building with an employee base of over 20 people. Early projects included work on the first Lunar Orbiter, to experimental work in the coal gasification process to the Hubble Telescope.
Today, we occupy a new 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Oxford, CT. Located with easy access from both I-84 and Rte 8 we provide our customers with more than just machine shop services. We pride ourselves on taking the extra steps to ensure that the products we deliver meet and exceed our customers’ demands.
