Camcraft started in Chicago with two men in a two-car garage in 1950, and we’ve been turning out precision parts ever since.Over the past six decades, we’ve grown into an 120,000 square foot facility with a staff of over 275. We’ve gone from manufacturing parts on simple drill presses and mills to utilizing advanced technologies from Index, Schutte, Hydromat, Euroturn, and Citizen. Although our technology has changed, our dedication to excellence has not.
