|ASTRON’s modern plant in Pepperell, MA is home to an organization with 100 years experience.
ASTRON’s capability to provide precision stamping solutions is based on a technical and organizational history of 100 years developed by two companies well established in the stamping field, Mass Machine and Stamping Co. and Dies and Stamping, Inc.
Mass Machine and Stamping was founded in 1906. For decades, it was a leading supplier of custom stampings ranging from precise watch and clock parts to standard washers. Founded in 1956 in Lowell, MA, Dies and Stampings became a specialized leader in custom, precision stampings for industry.
The two companies merged in 1982. The original name of the merged companies was Astron Products Corporation which was shortened to Astron, Inc. in 1989. In 1994, the company moved into a modern, 29,000 sq. ft. building in the Lomar Industrial Park in Pepperell, Massachusetts.
In 1997 Astron expanded its engineering and toolmaking capacity with the purchase of Circle T & D Corporation located in Woburn, MA. In November of 1997, all operations of Circle T & D were relocated to the Pepperell facility.
Barbara Antoniewich retired June 4, 2010 after twenty years of working with Astron Inc. in Pepperell, Massachusetts. Barb was the voice our customers and vendors first heard when they called Astron and she always did that with great enthusiasm. In addition to being Aston’s receptionist, Barb helped with many tasks including invoicing, accounts payable, human resources and customer service support.
Barb will be missed but not forgotten as the Astron family wishes her and her husband, Jay, the best in the their adventures in retirement.
