Rathbone Precision Metals, Inc., was founded in 1905 in Palmer, Massachusetts as a small pinion wire-making manufacturer that served the clock industry in central New England. In 1912 Rathbone moved to its current location in Palmer, MA at 1241 Park Street where we grew to expand around the original brick structure of 1912 that continues to stand today.
Since our inception, we have grown to be one of the largest and most respected producers of cold rolled and cold drawn metal profiles in North America, primarily serving the power generation, firearms, computer, medical, oil exploration and lawn and garden markets, among a score of others. This has all been made possible by our highly skilled employees, expert engineers, advanced equipment capabilities, faculty for innovation, and close cooperation with our customers, from initial design to the final product to realize the customer’s design as a cold worked product
In 2008, Rathbone became part of the Calvi Network of Companies, a world-wide group of precision profile manufacturers.
