Company Profile


Patriot Manufacturing, LLC is a metal stamping and four-slide company currently servicing primarily the aerospace, fastener, and electrical/electronics industries. We produce many parts, including engine blade locks, vein retainers, seals, HVAC bulb clips, a wide variety of brush holder brackets, electrical contacts, and straps.

The markets in which we participate are very large and provide significant opportunity for expansion. Patriot is committed to promoting the growth of U.S. manufacturing and specifically to Connecticut because of this State’s concentration of aerospace manufacturers. The metal stamping industry is highly competitive, which means that Patriot must differentiate itself in the market as it competes with many other stamping houses, most often many times larger. Differentiators include state of the art machinery, shorter lead times, the ability to produce short runs, and higher quality as more operations are conducted in house. In addition, Patriot plans to complete its ISO-9001 certification by the end of 2012.
