Space-Craft Manufacturing, Inc. was founded on February 5, l970 in Milford, Connecticut as a machine shop for gas turbine engine parts. Space-Craft has since developed into a manufacturer of precision-machined parts for aircraft and land-based gas turbine engines, as well as airframe components and other commercial items.
From the beginning our founder and present owner, John Soto, introduced and nurtured a culture that has emphasized and demanded a quality performance by each and every employee regardless of their responsibility. This culture, which has always fostered a dedicated group of employees, along with a continuous plan of investing in the latest and most advanced equipment available, has been at the center of our success.
In 1993 Space-Craft Manufacturing, Inc. relocated to a newer and larger facility in New Haven, Connecticut. This move allowed Space-Craft to incorporate the practical aspects of all the latest methods of efficiency and productivity in establishing the new production floor and supporting operations.
