We are excited to announce that we are changing our company name. We feel our new name is a better reflection of our current capabilities and targeted towards our long-term goals. Our ongoing investment in new technologies and continued focus on customer support allows us to bring the best solutions to our customers.

2016 : YEAR OF FIRSTS

Posted: March 2017
2016 was an exciting year for ORCO Tool & Machine! We expanded our customer base and extended our product reach. ORCO parts are now on Latitude, Longitude, Scorpion, Hondajet, Gulfstream and Boeing 777 & 787 platforms, in addition to our longstanding work on the CJ4 and Lear 70/75 platforms.

ORCO received ITAR accreditation in early November and we're discussing contracts with customers in military markets.

We added 6,400 sq. ft. of manufacturing space, implemented a new ERP software, and installed 2 new OKUMA 3-axis CNC machines.

2017 : FOCUS ON GROWTH

As part of our growth initiative, plans are in place to add a new 5-axis trunnion table machine and multi-spindle lathes to improve efficiency and increase capacity.

Increased capacity, improved efficiencies and a new ERP system allows ORCO to be even more cost competitive within the marketplace.
