Our History

It was founded by George Masters, Sr., a skilled machinist and graduate of the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA.  George and his three employees set out with a simple goal in mind: to supply quality precision machined products to local companies.

geosr4Today the company has moved to a more spacious and modern facility in Round Pond.  We have expanded our markets throughout the U.S. and beyond, while maintaining relationships with most of our original accounts.

Nearly 60 years later the company continues to grow under the leadership of George’s sons:  Richard, President, and George, Jr. as Vice President and the 3rd generation of Masters: Steven, Plant Manager and Jason, AS9100 Management Representative.

Masters' success rests in its commitment to produce superior products through the talents of its most valued resource—its employees.
