Custom Machine, Inc. (CMI) was founded by Mr. Cosmo Pasciuto in 1969 as a small machine shop providing general contract machining services. From the company’s original 5,000 square foot facility on Jefferson Ave in Woburn, Ma they manufactured components for a broad range of local customers. Over the next ten years business continued to grow as well as demands for complex machining. To respond to the business and machining demands the company moved to a new 12,000 square foot facility on Fowle Street in Woburn, Ma in 1978. During the 1980’s the emergence of the semi-conductor industry enabled Custom Machine Inc to grow their business, with the growth came more stringent demands and tighter tolerances. Once again Custom Machine responded to the needs of their customers by moving to a new 25,000 square foot facility on Nashua Street in Woburn, Ma in 1986. The new facility housed state of the art machines which enabled the company to provide high quality machined components to their customers. In 1994 Custom Machine Inc was reorganized to compete in a world class environment and became one of the few shops in New England to be ISO-9000 and AS9100 certified. This milestone along with a new second generation management team opened new doors to the future. With the new corporate structure and pedigrees, Custom Machine started serving the Aerospace and Medical components and assemblies markets. This helped to diversify the company and shift it from a shop in which the Semiconductor Fabrication Equipment market represented more than 90% of the business to a flexible, diversified facility more protected from the volatility of one market. While it continues to provide contract machining services to a broad range of customers, CMI has developed an expertise and outstanding reputation in serving the very demanding requirements of the Aerospace industry.
In 2004 Custom Machine Inc founded the Paul J. Pasciuto Memorial Foundation to honor the life of Paul who for many years was a driving force at Custom Machine. In the fifth year of the foundations existence it has awarded three scholarships for students attending Boston University and automatic external defibrillators have been donated to four Lynnfield schools; the Lynnfield Town Hall, library and Public Works Department building; the Winchester Public Library and Winchester Sachem Youth Football and cheerleading program; and the Woburn High School athletic department.
Custom Machine Inc recently identified a new business opportunity resulting from the growing shortage of skilled, well trained machinists both in New England and nationwide. This new business opportunity involves the education, training and placement of new machinists utilizing both online, computer-based techniques and actual work experience on appropriate metalworking machinery. To address this opportunity, Custom Machine, Inc. established The Center for Manufacturing Technology (CMT) in 2008, to provide manufacturing technology training in New England.
In January 2009 Custom Machine Inc announced plans to diversify in order to meet the demands of an ever changing global market place. Custom Machine Inc has now become Custom Group Inc with two member companies.
