Our History

We have more than 70 years of manufacturing experience behind our family-owned company. Anthony Parillo, Sr. was first involved in the manufacturing of screw machine products in 1942 at New Haven Screw Machine Products in New Haven, CT.

The success of that company was recognized in 1944 when it received the Army-Navy "E" Award for efficiency in the production of critical war materials.

In 1946 he founded Whiting Screw Machine Products in New Haven. It was relocated to Hamden, CT, in 1958. Anthony Parillo, Jr. joined the company in the '60s and took over ownership in 1972. In the mid- 90's, his son Anthony T Parillo, joined the business.

In 1996 the company name was changed to Manufacturers Associates, with an intent to suit their diverse product line. It then moved to the current location in West Haven, CT.

The company initially started with single spindle Brown & Sharpe screw machines. As the demand for machined parts kept rising, they invested in multi-spindle screw machines and various types of secondary machining equipment.

With the evolution of CNC machining technology in the '80s, CNC turning and multi-axis machines, milling machines were added. Today they have over 150 tools, including the very latest technology available.
