At first glance, Oren Elliott Products Machining appears to be a very modern company, with sophisticated state-of-the art equipment and metalworking techniques. Beneath the surface, however, lies a long tradition of precision machining in production quantities. We've been machining at our Plant I facility since 1925, when we produced screw-machined subcomponents for electromechanical assemblies under the name American Steel Packaging. At the height of production during World War II, American Steel Packaging (later to become All Star Products) produced millions of screw machine parts for the allied war effort.
Since Oren Elliott purchased the company in 1983, we've expanded by adding a second plant and several pieces of capital equipment. Most of our new equipment has focused on CNC machining, with which we serve customers as close as 10 miles away and as far away as California and Maine, in such industries as automotive manufacturing, food processing equipment, robotics, semiconductor fabrication equipment, fluid power, and medical/orthopedic equipment, to name a few.
The most fundamental aspect of our corporate culture is an emphasis on customer service in the three areas most crucial to companies outsourcing machine work: Quality, delivery, and price. Conformance to our customers' quality requirements is ensured by an enterprise-wide quality system registered to the ISO9001:2000 standard. Rapid lead-time and on-time delivery result from accurate scheduling and the capacity for high throughput. Competitive pricing is achieved in two ways: First, our overall efficiency results in a low hourly shop rate; and second, our use of innovative, cutting-edge machining techniques results in shorter cycle times and fewer secondary operations (some examples of these techniques are illustrated in our Image Gallery).
We pride ourselves on long-standing relationships with many of our customers, some of whom we've been able to provide design assistance (particularly in the area of manufacturability and cost reduction), JIT delivery, prototype and experimental parts, expedited deliveries when necessary, specific quality documentation or procedures (including PPAPs, SPC charts, material traceability, and so on), and turnkey manufacturing services.
