A women-owned small business since 1986, the Augusta, Wisconsin contract shop has built its business on relationships and family values. It works with local high schools such as Eleva-Strum Central High School (where it also donated CNC machines) and the Chippewa Valley Technical College (CV TC) to improve their skilled trades programs in part because the company has a critical, ongoing need for capable, qualif ied people. MRS Machining also hosts annual tours during which groups of students get to see the shop. Ongoing education is another aspect of its in-house training to nurture its workers' skills.
