MFG Center is connecting the manufacturing industry with its consumers better than ever before. The days of wasting valuable time asking around for the best machine shop and being limited to only the shops that your friends and coworkers know are gone. Our site is dedicated to providing you with a better, less frustrating experience. MFG Center wants to provide better accessibility to machine shops that will open your business to the whole manufacturing industry. As the website grows, new features will be added to help make your experience better. Just as continuous improvement is part of your job, it is also ours!
While some directories want to be involved in the quoting process, we do not, and we believe that adding a middle man only complicates matters. We want you to go straight to the source and develop meaningful relationships with the shops you find on this website. As we have had a lot of experience dealing with shops, we know that communication between the customer and vendor is essential to receiving an on time product that meets or exceeds your expectations. To add your shop simply fill out the form on the “Add Your Shop” page and submit it with as much information as possible. We will then review your application for accuracy within 48 hours of receipt, and publish your shop. Please note that while your shop’s email will be published on your listing, any personal emails associated with your shop will only be used for the verification of information on your listing. We reserve the right to deny or remove any listing.
MFG Center was created in 2013 by a mechanical engineer working at a manufacturing plant. After years of being frustrated with unsuccessful searches with inquires at work for new machine shops, the idea for a website that would connect the manufacturing industry with it’s consumers was born, and a machine shop directory was created. Helping buyers, engineers, and even private individuals find what they are looking for efficiently and accurately is at the heart of MFG Center.
