Lavallee Machining was founded in 1983 by Dave Lavallee Sr., and was acquired by Epec Engineered Technologies in 2019. In 2020, Metal Craft Machine, founded by Ben Reyes in Southbridge, Mass., was acquired and combined with Lavallee to form the new company – Metal Craft Machining. This new name best describes our business as we not only have a full complement of CNC programable milling and turning machines, we also have a talented group of experienced machinists with more than 250 years of combined experience so that we can make sure that the customers get all of the engineering and machining help they need. Both facilities were combined into our Main Street location in Southbridge, Mass., doubling our capacity, our capabilities, and our engineering resources all under one roof.
Our parent company, Epec Engineered Technologies has a more than 65-year history of reliability and financial stability that enables our continuous investment in people, technology, and new ideas that make it easier for our customers to do great work. Supplying more than 5,000 active customers with custom, build-to-print electronic products, we have engineered flexibility into the very fabric of our company.
To ensure the most accurate, timely, and cost-effective design and manufacturing process, we have built a global team of engineers, designers, R&D innovators, product managers, manufacturing/supply chain professionals, quality assurance personnel, and sales/customer service staff, all experts in their fields.
As part of our goal of being a global hybrid supplier to our customers, we have US and UK manufacturing centers, along with a significant investment over many years where we developed world class production facilities which are ISO-9001, QS-9002, TS-16949, and ITAR registered with aligned technology roadmaps and quality systems all over the world.
