An array of aerospace-industry parts.
Although the shop has a range of advanced machining capabilities and continually reinvests into the company with new equipment, much of its success can be attributed to its focus on and responsiveness to its customers’ needs while building lasting partnerships.
Close communication with customers enables the shop to offer design for manufacturability (DFM) advice, resulting in refinements to part design to facilitate machining, reducing overall production cost and delivery time. Project management is tracked from end-to-end enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, which enables C&M Machining to quickly adapt to changes and fully integrate the front office with the shop floor.
C&M Machining has a 20,000-square-foot, climate-controlled facility. Its fully-equipped shop is comprised of advanced CNC equipment as well as experienced machinists, toolmakers, programmers, inspectors and highly skilled management personnel.
C&M Machining is 2016’s Top Shops Honors Program winner in the business strategies category, given attributes such as its high profit margin, growth rate and quote-to-book ratio compared to other shops.
The 100 percent woman-owned shop was founded in 2005 by Cheryl K. Miller with a vision of becoming a leading CNC precision machine shop providing competitively priced, accurately machined components to the aerospace industry. In fact, 99 percent of the company’s sales comes from the aerospace industry in job orders ranging from single prototypes to millions of parts. C&M Machining is an AS9100-certified manufacturing company specializing in interior and structural components and assemblies for aerospace, defense and outer space applications.
