Urban Manufacturing’s history
Urban Manufacturing started with prototypes, and stills does prototypes well. We’ve picked up some more work along the way.
In 1978, Alex Urbanchek opened shop with a used manual lathe and sought part-time work machining prototypes.
By 1982, Alex was working full time and building a community-based machining business serving customers in a variety of industries.
In 1985, Urban Manufacturing became a GE Certified Supplier.
Urban Manufacturing built the current facility beginning in 1987. Since then, it has been expanded three times, the last one finished in November of 2002 increasing space by over 20,000 square feet to a total of 60,000 square feet.
In 1997, Urban Manufacturing became a Harley Davidson Motorcycle Company tier one supplier.
Along with Harley Davidson and General Electric, Urban Manufacturing added Cooper Power Electrical Systems, GE Yokogawa, Buell Motorcycle, SurgiVet, and Biochem International into their major client mix, covering a diversified set of industries: medical equipment, motorcycle and automotive, power distribution and equipment.
In 2008, Urban Manufacturing became a GE Healthcare Strategic Supplier.
Today, Alex Urbanchek and Urban Manufacturing does almost $30,000,000 in sales, employs 120 people (including 20 journeymen machinists), and has a plan to build prototypes — and a whole lot more.
Myron L Meters is proud to do business with Urban Manufacturing.
