In 2007, Sleeman Mill & Lathe was born out of necessity, as the owners were dealing with numerous machine shops that:

  1. Didn’t specialize in plastics machining
  2. Had an inconsistent turnaround time
  3. Didn’t specialize in mold-making.

Since then SML has grown into a speciality machine shop specializing in plastics, prototyping and mold-making.
