Although growing in size and reputation, Podmore Manufacturing, Pittsfield, N.H., is currently trying to scale down, in a manner of speaking.
“Customers are pushing us to make smaller and smaller parts,” says Kerry Podmore, president. The company specializes in the production of miniature precision machined parts for a variety of industries, including computers, electronics, medical, aerospace and automotive.
Established in 1982 by Podmore’s father, Barry, the company started off with three escomatic screw machines in a 1,200-square-foot space. “We currently have more than 94 machines in a 35,000-square-foot facility,” Podmore says. “As the demand for smaller parts grows, we’re investing in new equipment to meet these needs.”
