History

Bachman Machine Company was founded as an individual proprietorship in 1927 by William N. Bachman. The company started as a tool and die shop and operated in a store front building in St. Louis, MO. In 1929 Bachman Machine moved locations and expanded it’s capabilities to handle metal stamping by purchasing its first punch press. In 1936 the company needed room for more punch presses and so moved to a larger building. After moving locations Bachman bought more punch presses. Plastics Molding Company, a subsidiary of Bachman, was founded in 1946. In 1963 the metal stamping department purchased more punch presses and in 1982 a precision machining department was created. In 1988 the company expanded to an 80,000 sq foot facility. Between 1988 and 2012 the company has purchased more equipment, increased the punch press capacity up to 1000 tons, and expanded to 105,000 sq ft. The current President is Bill Bachman who is the 3rd generation of Bachmans to lead the company.
