In 1946, Walter Stammer Sr. founded what is now known as Quality Machined Products and Manufacturing, Inc. A German immigrant who had come to America in 1936, Walter Sr. settled in Western Pennsylvania (PA) and was employed as an engineer for Westinghouse. Seeing a need for local manufacturers to provide superior quality parts for companies in the booming Pittsburgh economy, he started Precision Automatic Machine Co. in 1946. Precision Automatic Machine Co. was a 10,000 square foot screw machine job shop located in Monroeville, PA specializing in high volume production runs.

A Long History of Precision Machining

After his passing in 1988, his son, Walter Stammer Jr., took over as president of Precision Automatic Machine. In the early 1990’s, much of the screw machine type of work was beginning to be outsourced overseas. Upon realizing this trend, Walter Jr. decided to shift his business more towards specializing in high precision parts. He began replacing his screw machines with the latest CNC machining equipment. He kept the high production mentality, making sure his CNC equipment was outfitted with 12-foot automatic magazine bar loaders to meet the production demands of his customers. He, along with his two sons Dieter and Mark, saw this business grow to customers outside of Western PA.

In 1995, due to space limitations, Walter Jr. opened a sister company, Quality Machined Products and Manufacturing Inc. in North Versailles, PA. This company, specializing in precision CNC turning, was equipped with the latest CNC and screw machines available. Through a strong commitment to quality and customer service, by 2005 under the management of Walter Jr. and Greg Ringling, QMP had established itself as a top local custom machine job shop.

In 2005, a new 20,000 square foot facility was constructed and the companies were consolidated. Due to its growing customer base and reputation, the name Quality Machined Products and Manufacturing Inc. was retained moving forward. Since 2005, QMP has added six new CNC lathes and ten employees. A family business, QMP continues to grow and develop new business through a dedication to quality and commitment to customer service.
