In 1952 Northfield Precision was founded by Willam A. Steffen, Murray Farber and Robert Levy. The first products manufactured by the company were microspin bearings, precision gear blanks, precision shafting, precision limit stops and miniature slip clutches for the electronic industry. In 1959 Northfield Precision became a public corporation. The first precision air chuck to 0.0001 (2.54µ) total indicator reading was introduced to the machine tool industry in 1962. Since the introduction of this chuck the founders mandated to all employees that quality and service will always remain the top priority of the company. Northfield now occupies a 15,000 square foot manufacturing facility with up to date production machinery. Included in the facility are design engineering and customer service. It also owns an additional 10,000 square feet for future growth. The company is very proud of every employee because with their superior skills it allows Northfield Precision to supply the industry with the best quality products possible.
