In 1966, Jim founded James A Smith Company with two lathes in his garage. In 1973, after having added more machines and becoming larger than the garage could hold, Jim built a shop and continued to grow. In 1986, Jim added on to the building, creating 10,000 sq ft of shop with over 25 machines. Machines ranging from Bridgeports to a Toyoda 60"x120" CNC Vertical Machining Center, from one of the original lathes to Hitachi-Seiki CNC lathes, from a Toshiba CNC Horizontal Machining Center to Okamoto surface grinders. We are a member of the National Federation of Independent Businesses and a life-long member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. Staying on the cutting edge of technology, yet keeping the old fashioned work ethic that has created it, James A Smith Company is your precision machining solution.
