A custom machine shop that you can count on to deliver quality - on time, and on budget.
tool-and-die shop called Accraline in the late 1960s in downtown Bremen, residents who casually strolled past the storefront would stop outside the front doors, which were usually propped open, and peer inside to watch the activity. Many people in this Marshall County town had never seen the kind of heavy-duty industrial machine that Richard Cormican and a business partner used to machine castings and tooling plates. The friends had taken out a small business loan, using their homes in South Bend for collateral, so they could buy a Giddings & Lewis horizontal boring mill.
To make ends meet back then, Cormican kept his day job at another local machine shop and worked nights at Accraline, a business name derived from the words “accurate line.” The pair would split Cormican’s check to pay the bills, support their families and invest in their startup machine-by-machine, customer-by-customer.
Today, the privately held company that still calls Bremen home is managed by Cormican’s sons, Cris and Mark. The company still makes components, tools and fixtures, but its customers have become much bigger companies than Accraline served in its early years. The very first customers were other machine shops in the region, but Accraline grew in capability and capacity over the years to make components for hundreds of customers, including U.S. companies such as Caterpillar, General Electric, and overseas customers.
