At Baker, we are relentlessly persistent as a thriving, growing enterprise that’s innovating and energized. We’ve grown from humble beginnings as Baker Duplicating in 1992, transitioning to Baker Machining & Mold Technologies as we added equipment and capabilities to serve demands of automotive customers. Our growth trajectory shot upward in 2008-2011 as we expanded into large-scale machining and fabricating to serve demands of aerospace customers; signaling this, we added Baker Aerospace Tooling & Machining.
We invested again. More equipment. More space. More technology. More services – including Design, Engineering, 3D Plastic & Metal Printing.
In 2016, we took the next step, transforming into Baker Industries. The Baker Industries name is meant to inform our Aerospace and Automotive customers as well as prospective new customers in other markets, that we bring our A-game to meet their needs and solve their challenges. Our A-game integrates our best people with the best technology, best equipment and best practices, to deliver excellence and innovation in every project.
Our office and 4 plants in Macomb, Michigan are firmly planted in the industrial heartland. Innovation happens here. New ideas. New processes. New products. New materials. We integrate what’s new and what works with a best-of-breed approach to provide innovation that works right the first time every time.
In April 2019 Baker Industries was acquired by the Lincoln Electric Company. The Baker organization will compliment Lincoln Electric’s automation portfolio and its new large scale metal additive manufacturing service business that was launched in mid-2019. Leveraging Lincoln Electric’s core competencies in automation, software development and metallurgy, the new metal additive business will manufacture large-scale printed metal parts, prototypes and tooling for industrial and aerospace customers. The Baker operation, along with a Cleveland, Ohio based additive manufacturing development center, will provide an additive manufacturing platform to help customers improve their lead times, designs and quality in their operations.
