Steve Peplin, John Talan, and Rich Peplin collaborated to create a manufacturing company in 1986 with a $2,100 investment. They had no manufacturing equipment but landed a customer, contracted out production, and shipped parts. Upon landing their second customer in the next year, 1987, they purchased a Niagara punch press machine.
The company started out on Chatfield Ave. in the neighborhood of West Park, Cleveland and moved to Cleveland's Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood in 1991. In 2006 the company moved into a building formerly occupied by TRW Inc. in Cleveland's Collinwood Neighborhood. Each relocation is within the city of Cleveland's urban manufacturing areas and was facilitated by growth.

In 1993 the company was first recognized for the "green initiatives" it had adopted and Pete Accorti was awarded the "Green Lantern" award by Crain Communications, Crain's Cleveland Business in 2010.
