F.B. Manion has been supplying the aerospace and commercial industries with grinding solutions since 1969. F.B. Manion started out as a small 2-man shop specializing in Centerless Grinding of complex forms to eventually include Creep-Feed Grinding. By the early 90's F.B. Manion saw a need for an improved process in machining superalloys. In 1992 F.B. Manion was one of the first companies to embrace the new emerging HEDG (High Efficiency Deep Grinding) technology. Being involved with this new process from its infancy, F.B. Manion was able to be at the center of its development and a key contributor. That experience has enabled them to remain a leader in Superabrasive machining.
Customers have ranged from large corporations such as GE Aircraft Engines, Pratt & Whitney, Lockheed Martin and Rolls-Royce Energy to small local machine shops. Through out their history F.B. Manion has maintained a reputation for quality and a policy to produce a product that meets or exceeds the customer's expectations.
F.B. Manion is currently located in a 21, 600 Sq. Ft. air conditioned building located in Columbia, CT off of Route 66 with easy access to RT-6, RT-32, RT-2, I-384/I-84 & I-395.
