Company Culture


To be the model for complete customer service and satisfaction in the contract manufacturing industry for generations to come.


Always keeping the end user in mind, the needs of our customers are our top priority. Stanley Machining builds partnerships with OEM's through open and proactive communication, creative and proven processes and continuous re-investment in our resources. As a firmly established industry leader in the manufacture of contract precision machined components, we create a solid and sustainable business model by fluidly adapting to ever-changing environments -from shop floor technologies to global marketplaces.


Our company started in a downtown Chicago garage by a husband and wife who had recently immigrated from Poland. Stanley's first customer was his own boss at A.B. Dick & Company who gave a 23 year old young man a chance to do overflow work in the evenings and on weekends. Our success began and continues because of:

  • hard work

  • a determination to meet and exceed customer needs

  • dedication to quality and attention to detail

  • gratitude for opportunity

  • flexibility and interest - no hat is too small or too big. No job is someone else's.
