A Brief History:
In 1962 John (Janos) Petyan III and Stephen Horvath founded HP Machine in the humble confines of a one car garage. John and Steve worked in that cramped space turning out high quality parts for the area glass industry until 1964 when they purchased JC Lore Machine on Oxford St, Vineland, NJ.
Business quickly boomed with the added space and exposure that the new location offered. In 1966 they had already outgrown the small 1400sq ft facility and they nearly doubled the space to keep up with demand. HP continued to build upon the reputation for the next 30 years hiring several more employees over time. In 1994 Steve decided to enjoy his success and retire.
1995 rolled around and John Petyan IV- newly graduated from Johnson Institute of Technology joined his father in business. The "NEW" outlook and budding skills of John IV brought on updating of machining technology. HP added our first CNC lathe in 1997. Soon to follow CAD (computer aided drafting) and CAM (computer aided machining) by 1998.
In 2000 the new machines and growing list of customers required another addition. By 2001 HP Machine was stretching its legs in a 7500sq ft climate controlled building at the same location.
Sadly and unexpected John Petyan III passed away in Sept 2010. His legacy and commitment to business and personal integrity as well as many of his skills and knowledge live on.
2014 Marked HP's 50th year at this location. Today HP Machine consists of several CNC Turning Centers (lathes), CNC Machining Centers (milling), manual lathes, mills and screw machines TIG, & MIG welding as well as the latest CNC machining and CAD drafting software. The combination of the old world skills taught by John III combined with the latest technology ensures that our customers receive the best possible value for many years to come.
