About Us

Brighton NC CNC Machining Brighton NC (BNC) was established in 1965. At the time, we were one of the first privately held US companies that owned a numerically controlled or NC machine (the forerunner to today's CNC machines). The business started with three families and one NC lathe. Today, two of the original families are still actively involved 50/50%, with 70+ CNC machine tools and nearly 200 employees.

Brighton NC Machine became known as a machining company, driven by a machinist, Jack Clausnitzer. Jack insisted that machining fundamentals were learned and passed on to all employees. Many of the people who have benefitted from this training have been with the company nearly 40 years. Over the years, BNC added many other very talented people who have shown continued dedication to their profession and the company's success. These people are BNC's foundation and our primary competitive advantage.

Our core competencies are procurement of foundry tooling, castings and forgings as well as manufacturing/engineering for design, build and implementation of fixtures and processes. We also have experience in Electronic data interchange(EDI) and other disciplines. But what makes us stand out above the rest is the in-house training we provide for our machinists, providing top quality work in a timely manner that you won't get from any other CNC machining manufacturer.
