Proud History of Manufacturing Chicago

Chicago, Illinois is home to deep-dish pizza, Oprah, Second City Comedy, the Chicago Bears, and Swiss Precision Machining. Our Machining team has proudly called Chicago our home for more than 30 years. When we opened our doors in 1979, SPM joined the thousands of industrial manufacturers who helped make Chicago the manufacturing hub of the United States for the better part of a century.

The legacy of Chicago manufacturing continues to push our team of machinists to machine, engineer, and produce the best product, every time. At Swiss Precision Machining, we know that being the best manufacturer in Chicago means being the best in the world. Only a hundred years ago, the city we know today was in ashes following the Great Chicago Fire. Over that time, the White City was home to the World’s Fair, saw the invention of the skyscraper, and launched what is still the largest transportation hub in the world. Now that’s grit.

To this very day, Illinois continues to be home to thousands of manufacturers across a wide range of industries. Manufacturers in the machining industry contribute more than $88.5 billion in state revenue, with food and metal manufacturers rounding out the top three industries. Chicago is home to more than 64% of all state manufacturing jobs, totaling more than 360,000 jobs in the metropolitan area. Manufacturers are hard at work as the backbone of the American economy.

At Swiss Precision Machining, we’ve grown from a crew of just two to a team of more than 130 employees at our Chicago machining location and there’s no end in sight. We’ve expanded our precision machining services to include CNC Swiss Screw Machining, CNC Vertical Machining, Swaging, Threadrolling & Knurling, and more. No matter the job, our manufacturing partners trust Swiss Precision Machining to finish parts to perfection. It’s what we do. Investing in our workforce, investing in Chicago, and investing in the future of machining is what keeps Swiss Precision Machining moving forward.
