Epec Acquires Metal Craft Machine


Release Date:

[February 16, 2020: New Bedford, MA] Lavallee Machining, an Epec Company, announced today the acquisition of Southbridge, Mass.-based Metal Craft Machine. The merger of these two local machine shops into one company will better enhance the service Epec brings to its customers.

In January 2019, Epec acquired Lavallee Machining, founded in 1983 and a trusted manufacturer of time-sensitive, CNC-machined parts for OEMs. Since this time, Epec has seen a huge positive response from the already existing customer base of printed circuit boards and user interface products.

Ed McMahon, CEO of Epec, commented: "Our machining business has grown so fast in such a short time, we needed another acquisition. The additional personal and equipment is a tremendous help for us to keep up with our customers demand. Customers who have relied on us for their electronic parts for many years are now coming to us with their machining requirements as they have grown to trust our quality and delivery."

Metal Craft Machine, founded by Ben Reyes in Southbridge, was acquired and combined with Lavallee Machining to form the new company - Metal Craft Machining. Our 15,000-square-foot facility in Southbridge now has doubled capacity with 15 CNC machines and 10 experienced machinists. Along with being able to support small/medium volume in their U.S. facility, Epec also has factories in Asia that can help their customers be ultra-competitive on higher volume machined parts as well.
