In 1980, Pedro Agreda and his son Charlie founded a small machine shop in South Windsor, Conn., aimed at servicing the aerospace industry. In time, C&P Machine Co. grew from a two-machine operation to one occupying a 98,000-square-foot facility, and it has continued to grow and evolve as the years have passed. In 2008, the company purchased Empire Manufacturing and brought it into the fold.
In 2010, it acquired Aero Tube Technologies, a leader in manufacturing rigid tube assemblies for the aerospace and power generation markets for more than 50 years. That combination of skills, experience and capabilities gave the company a new lease on life, and it recently rebranded as EvoAero Inc. to reflect this.
