Merit was founded by a group of five partners in 1966. The guiding principals of the partners resulted in the name, MERIT – Manufacturing with Excellence, Reliability, Innovation and Technology thus the namesake for the company.
AS9100 certification has brought about a strategic change in thought and philosophy, allowing us to focus on ongoing process improvement. Merit employees are passionately dedicated to the pursuit of American manufacturing excellence, as we focus on quality and service. Close tolerance, complex geometry and super alloy production machining specialties are the backbone of who we are.
