We have manufactured over 125,000,000 pieces of the ‘531’ component with zero rejects at the assembly plant. The part is small (3mm) and is highly contoured. After 23,000,000 of these components, Springdale was awarded the Platinum Partner Award from our customer for this accomplishment. More awards have followed, and the ‘531’ is continuing to be produced today at a capability of 400,000 pieces per week.
Springdale Automatics was launched in June of 1997 in a small shop with two Tornos multi-spindle screw machines in Jackson, MI. The company was founded by co-owners Ronald L. Ball and Harvey Smith who both believed in the capability of Tornos to achieve high-volume precision machining at an unbeatable price.
Quickly, the Ball family became the sole owners, and in 2002, Springdale was
Incorporated and relocated to a larger facility in Addison, MI. Even the economic downturn in 2008 did not stop their continuing growth, due in part to a firm policy of remaining debt free, while paying vendors immediately. The purchase of
additional Tornos made it necessary for a further move to the company’s present expansive facility near Osseo, MI, where it has been located since December of 2012.
Springdale Automatics carries a low overhead burden, as it remains solvent with no mortgage. This is good for both the company and for our customers.
Springdale does not need to increase prices to pay for excess waste. As a result, we are able to benefit our employees and customers alike.
