With pinpoint precision, E & M Manufacturing, Inc. builds, creates and fabricates unique, complex and often one-of-a-kind parts, tooling and commercial grade hinges for businesses, engineers and companies across the nation and internationally.
Using state of the art systems, cutting-edge technology and both manual and computer-aided processes for precision machining, metal stamping, assembly, reverse engineering and more, E & M takes pride in getting the job done on time.
Efiong began working for the company in 1995 as a temp employee, eventually purchasing the company with co-worker and business partner Matt Braund, who started with the company in 2001.
Based in White Bear Lake, E & M was founded as Daro Industries in 1977, specializing in commercial grade hinges for industrial applications like radiation shielding and soundproofing. Over the years, the company grew to add milling and turning capabilities. Daro Industries merged with All-American Engineering & Mfg. in 2004 and ultimately become E & M in 2017.
Efiong said both he and Braund agreed 21st Century Bank would be their banking partner after their initial meeting.
