aeromet industries mandrel machinist shop

History of Aeromet Industries

Founded in 1971 with an initial investment of $5,000, Aeromet Industries was committed to providing quality machining and manufacturing services from the beginning. At this time, all work was done by our two founding partners and the company operated from a rented garage in Lansing, IL. As the need for additional output increased, more machinery was purchased and additional employees were hired.

Over the years Aeromet continued to grow and moved to Griffith, IN, renting a larger facility and eventually moving into our current 25,000 sq. ft. location. Our commitment to our customers has led to designing, developing, and patenting one of the top mandrel drums in existence. Today we look to the future for the opportunity to continue to provide industrial repairs and machine shop services to industrial customers throughout the United States.
