Astro Manufacturing and Design first began providing customers with the highest quality contract manufacturing services in 1977.
Founded by Mike Watts, Sr. and three partners, Astro Manufacturing & Design was based upon the commitment to provide customers with the highest quality contract manufacturing and total product assembly services. This principle was a cornerstone of the new company and over time, drove Astro to improve customer support by aggressively expanding capabilities and service offerings.
Because of this bold expansion of services, Astro today boasts CNC & manual machining, sheet metal fabricating, plastics, rapid prototyping, painting, product development, engineering design, total product assembly and numerous other vital manufacturing services.
As the company continued to grow throughout the eighties and nineties, Mike Watts, Sr. eventually acquired sole ownership. In 1999, his son Mike Watts, Jr. assumed the role of president. His vision and management initiatives have continued to lead the company into the new millennium. The original goals of the company remain as we continue to achieve the highest levels of customer satisfaction and continued growth and expansion in the years to come.
