Company Profile

Founded in 1953 as the Eagle Manufacturing Company, we began primarily as a welding shop. Equipment at that time consisted of a drill press, lathe and welding machine, and soon with the growth of the electronics industry, grew to include precision sheet metal fabrications with a specialization in aluminum fabrication and welding. This soon became the core of our business.


Anticipating our customers’ future requirements, Eagle Metalcraft expanded to include professional in-house painting, finishing and powder coating. Over the years, we’ve added state-of-the-art capital equipment to improve quality and productivity. Laser Cutting, CNC Machining and Turning centers provide customers “one-stop shopping”, and job-shop specific software enable better control and analysis of job costs and flow through.


With a focus on “old world craftsmanship,” Eagle Metalcraft has earned a reputation as a Premiere Sheet Metal Fabricator, CNC Machining and Turning company with unequaled quality and delivery. Whether you are in the Northeast or anywhere in the United States, we look forward to teaming with you to produce the highest quality precision metal products.
