Driven by Quality, Guided by Excellence

Our mission is to deliver unparalleled craftsmanship in fabrication and machining. Our core values revolve around precision, customer-centric service, and maintaining competitive pricing. These principles are the cornerstone of our business, guiding our operations and decisions every day. They are the reason behind our enduring customer relationships and our reputation in the industry.

Founded in the industrious heart of Mid-Michigan, Great Lakes Fabrication & Machining began its journey in 2014, evolving from the esteemed Co-Op Machine Tool – a name synonymous with over 30 years of excellence in custom machining. In the years since, we have not only expanded our team but have also reinforced our commitment to creating unique, high-quality products. Our dedication to quality, combined with a focus on customer satisfaction and cost-effectiveness, has rapidly positioned GLFM as a top-tier supplier in our field.

Our team is our greatest asset – a group of skilled professionals ranging from industry veterans with decades of experience to innovative young talents. Each member brings a unique set of skills and a shared passion for excellence.
