The Micron Story

Corporate Timeline –The Micron Story


Micron Industries is established as a traditional tool and die shop in a converted garage rental in downtown Rochester NY.  Modest beginnings indeed.

Micron's early Customer Focus:
Rochester Products (Automotive)
Eastman Kodak Company (Manufacturing)


We quickly outgrew our shop and needed an expansion!  Micron builds a 5000 square ft manufacturing facility in Gates, NY.  A big win for us ... and our customers.

Another early Micron Customer Focus:
Hydroacoustics Inc (HAI).  Delivering sonar based components for military applications.

Micron expands its market reach by producing molds for the Food Packaging industry.  In the process we establish ourselves as regional experts in Thermoforming technology.  Our reputation grows ...

And our Founding Owner is hands-on the shop floor.
Just the way he likes it.

Customer Focus and Attention ... the Micron approach.


Micron expands its technology even further as a true pioneer of CNC programming and operations.

Gun-drilling capabilities are added as a core expertise too. We must continue to invest in ourselves.

And again we need more space to accommodate growth! Micron expands its facilities by almost 50%.
