425 Manufacturing was started in June 2015 by Michael and Michelle Thomason. Our primary focus is to support general manufacturing in Northern Illinois including Rockford and the surrounding Chicago suburbs.
In our first 4 years in business we have grown to employ 17 people and offer our employees complete benefits including health, dental, retirement and many more benefits. 425 Manufacturing has quickly become a leader in supplying and stocking aftermarket parts for the mining and blast hole drill industry. In 2018 our parts shipped to 6 of the 7 continents around the world.
Involvement with our community and helping to inform and teach the next generation of manufacturing students is one of our most important goals currently and in the future. We are highly involved in the local schools and work with their shop and welding classes on a monthly basis. We also send our office staff twice a year since 2015 to give mock interviews to the freshman and junior classes.
We have had a blood drive every year since we opened our doors and have also hosted manufacturing day tours every year and are part of the manufacturing day advisory team to streamline the activities and engage the youth on their level.
The entire Thomason family believes in giving back to the community whenever possible. Below you will see the latest of our donations (occurring on 6/7/2019). The Thomasons love animals, and joined forces with our local pet food shelter, Kibble Korner. Kibble Korner was started to help those in need if they were unable to afford food for their pets. 425 Manufacturing and 425 Fabrication Division were able to donate a total of 2,300 pounds of dog and cat food!
