Mill Creek Machining Gains National Footprint


Mill Creek Machine

Justin Stamer of Mill Creek Machining (MCM) verified the merger of Mill Creek Machining was finalized about six weeks ago. Mill Creek Machining with four other precision machining, fabrication, assembly and design businesses are part of Consolidated Machine and Tool (CM&T). The four additional companies are Astro-Tek, Anaheim, CA; RLS Machining, Omro, WI; Murphy Machine Product, Wood Dale, IL; and LCP Machine, Bunnell, FL. The corporate office of CM&T is located in Miami, Florida. Stamer said the merger was a stock deal of the involved companies.

Stamer said, "The merger greatly expands capacity." He said each individual business now has access to the tools, skills and other business resources of all of the others merged with CM&T. He said CM&T has contracts with the Department of Defense, something none of the individual shops would otherwise have. CM&T specializes in aerospace, defense, military, space/satellite, and industrial manufacturing. They also serve customers working in infrastructure and construction. The customer base is global, according to their website. Each of the five companies is either ISO 9001:2008, AS9100C and ITAR certified and have been recognized for their quality by their customers.

Currently the corporation owns 166 machine tools and employs approximately 200 people.

Stamer says the goal of the expanded business is to grow as fast as possible. At the same time, he says, Mill Creek Machining's location will stay as full as possible. There are no plans to make any changes. Over time, one of the expected advantages it to be able to provide a better standard of living with higher wages, perhaps and better benefits. There are currently 55 employees at Paullina. Stamer also explained that the MCM location in Spencer will remain with plans to grow that to 100 – 150 employees over 3 years. The Spencer shop is a duplicate of Paullina.

"Nothing will change," Stamer firmly repeated. You may see some machine swapping, but the business will see no significant changes.
