It began as a simple idea back in 1969, and today C&S Machine and Manufacturing Corporation was honored by Councilwoman Keisha Dorsey (D-3) for its commitment to the community and its impact on the local economy in Metro Louisville.
“It may be hard for many people to believe but what began as a simple idea between two men in a small garage has grown into the thriving business that C&S has become today,” said Councilwoman Dorsey during a special ceremony to commemorate National Manufacturing Day.
Back in 1969, Robert Steele and Ronnie Cook founded C&S General Machine in a small garage on Cook’s Property. By 1980, the company expanded and located to 3828 Fitzgerald Road and was renamed C&S Machine and Manufacturing Corporation.,
It is a full CNC production plant, specializing in precision production parts, large and small. It has built a loyal customer base by offering dependable and high-quality machine shop services. The company has 50 employees, runs three shifts and serves many industries in the region.
Today, Ryan Steele, grandson of one of the founders is the fifth president of the company.
“We should take this opportunity to say thank you to local companies like these. They believed in an idea, believed in the community and decided to make their future here in District 3 and Metro Louisville. C & S has made a considerable difference and impact in our community,” said Dorsey.
