Modern Industries Company Profile

Our Machining & Assembly Division is a key component of Modern Industries, because so much of what we do begins with a part being machined. Here you will find a total complement of machining equipment and processes from state-of-the-art CNC machining centers to automated loading of dual spindle lathes.

The Machining & Assembly Division (MMD) at Modern Industries is located in Erie, Pennsylvania. We specialize in providing machining, manufacturing and assembly services for small or large volume lot sizes for a variety of markets. Modern has over 65 CNC machines and an equal amount of specialized support equipment.

One of Modern’s strengths is our ability to help your team design the product best suited for their markets, making the product more affordable and manufacturing friendly. Customers often use this ability to bring their products to market faster than the competition.

Our ability to be production-ready on short notice is made possible by tooling-up quickly utilizing our in-house tool room. Within a couple of weeks we are able to run production on new products. Whether the quantities are small or large, Modern has the capabilities of meeting our customers’ most demanding needs.
