A.R.E. Manufacturing, Inc. began in 1980 as a part time business located in the owner’s garage. The company was located in Dundee, Oregon, operating as A.R.E. Machining. Full time operations began in 1984 with four employees and one CNC lathe in a 1000 square foot facility. In 1987, A.R.E. Machining moved to a 4200 sq. ft. building in Newberg, Oregon, and a year later incorporated, changing its name to A.R.E. Manufacturing, Inc. The next milestone came in 1995 when A.R.E. Manufacturing, Inc. moved to a new 21,000 sq. ft. facility, allowing the company to expand and purchase several state-of-the-art Mori Seiki CNC machines with advanced automation, vastly improving A.R.E.’s quality and flexibility in manufacturing parts. In 2005, A.R.E. Manufacturing, Inc. began implementing Lean Manufacturing principles at all levels in the organization.
