In 2007, Sleeman Mill & Lathe was born out of necessity, as the owners were dealing with numerous machine shops that:
Didn’t specialize in plastics machining
Had an inconsistent turnaround time
Didn’t specialize in mold-making.
Since then SML has grown into a speciality machine shop specializing in plastics, prototyping and mold-making.
