Founded in 1977 by three bay-area locals, Accurate Manufacturing Company has been a thriving machine shop in the bay-area for over 40 years.

In 2009 Accurate Manufacturing was purchased by Joseph Sullivan.  Joseph was born and raised in rural Nebraska where he worked on his family’s dairy farm until he joined the United States Navy in 1987.  Joseph rose through the ranks quickly earning two Good Conduct medals and two Navy Achievement medals along with numerous other accommodations.  While serving his last few years in the Navy, Joseph partnered up with his father-in-law Heinrich DeVries, a tool and die maker from Holland, to learn the trade.  After working alongside Heinrich for 5 years, Joseph started his own machine shop.  Years later, Joseph was approached by the owners of Accurate Manufacturing to merge the two companies. In 2009 the previous owners of Accurate Manufacturing retired and Joseph became the sole owner.

Accurate Manufacturing Company has been making products for various industries to include medical, aftermarket automotive, and the film industry to name a few. We now have our own product line of film industry products which are Cardellini Clamps and other Cardellini products. We have been making the Cardellini Clamps and Cardellini Products since shortly after their introduction into the market.
In 2017 Steve Cardellini, the inventor of the Cardellini Clamp, and Accurate Manufacturing made an agreement to keep the Cardellini Clamp and Cardellini Products alive after Mr. Cardellini’s retirement.

On May 1st, 2017 Accurate Manufacturing purchased 80% of the assets of Film Crew Services, which consists of Cardellini Clamps, Mini Clamps, Skinny-Mini Clamps, and Clamp Accessories.  In addition to the 80% ownership, Accurate Manufacturing agreed to distribute the remaining products until another agreement is made.  (MAKE LINK) Steve Cardellini’s retirement letter.
