About our History
Founded in 1946 by Fritz C. Maurer, Maurer Artcraft; later renamed Maurer Metalcraft, began as a decorative metal spinning company. Its unique craftsmanship and close proximity to Sikorsky Helicopters headquarters led to a relationship in the development of prototype parts for new production helicopters and over the years has grown into a robust sheet metal fabrication operation.
Edward A. Pohl, Sr., founded Milford Fabrication Co in 1947, working out of a small garage at his home in Milford CT. In 1950 Milford Fabricating grew and relocated to Erna Ave where a new 3,000 Sq. ft factory was constructed. Over the years 3,000 grew to 30,000 Sq. Ft.
Milford Fabricating Co. provides precision quality custom sheet metal fabricating services, Nadcap Welding and Heat Treating to local customers such as Sikorsky Aircraft, Boeing, Hamilton Sundstrand/Collins Aerospace, and Pratt & Whitney.
Valley Tool and Manufacturing LLC was founded as a traditional tool and die business in 1984. It began by offering machining services in a variety of industries for the manufacturing of machine tools.
