Reed & Stefanow was established in 1972 as a partnership between Joseph R. Reed and Peter Stefanow as a subcontractor machining components for the aircraft industry, starting out in a 700 square foot garage in downtown Hartford.

Building a reputation as a quality machine shop led to their 1st expansion to Bristol in 1977.

In 1982, Mr. Stefanow was bought out by Joseph R. Reed and they continued to manufacture aircraft components until 1986 when they purchased their 1st CNC milling machine. That 1st milling machine was followed by an OKUMA CNC lathe then an OKUMA CNC milling center as they continued expanding beyond aircraft components for other industries.

The company remains focused on providing the precision and service that the founders established over 30 years ago.
