CUSTOM MACHINING FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS

Old school service with a modern touch.

Reliable. Efficient. Meticulous.

A custom machine shop that you can count on to deliver quality - on time, and on budget.

When two machinists opened a small

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.

Cris Cormican

Cris Cormican is the second generation family owner of Accraline, Inc. His father started the company in the 60's, and he literally grew up with it. Some of Cris' earliest memories were heading to the machine shop before dawn when he was in elementary school to help his dad dig holes to pour the foundation so they could install the boring mill. His first real job was running a drill press for a penny per hole. Since then, Accraline, Inc. has expanded drastically in both size and scope under his ownership, with no end in sight.

Ernie Wonisch, Jr

Ernie began his sales career with Accraline, Inc. 16 years ago. He started his machining career as a high school kid sweeping floors at SB Screw Products, before heading off to college - where he studied business and played hockey. After college he finished his apprenticeship with Martin Machine, before becoming a Journeyman and later Benchman at a variety of companies though the years. Ernie is an avid sports fan. In addition to volunteering as a hockey coach and referee since the early 1970's, he has served as an Usher at Notre Dame football games for over 44 years.
