The Decline of our Industrial Base

Thirty-five years ago, when Micrex became an independent company, there were ten tool and die makers nearby. Now there is one. You can argue that the skills are obsolete, and the future belongs to technologies like AI, but the reality is that maintaining these skills and our industrial base is critical to our nation. Custom dies and tooling precede mass production and automation.

At Micrex we are continuing to invest in machine tools so that when someone has a good idea, we can try it immediately.  Speed is important and we are committed to getting our customers to market quickly.  You can’t do that without tooling.
