Advanced Machining & Design is a machine shop with experiences in design, manufacturing, and machining of quality parts for the construction, agriculture and aerospace industries.  Owner, Chris Berndt, started Advanced Machining & Design in 2011 by renting a small garage size space and purchasing a Haas CNC mill.  In 2016 he built a new facility and expanded adding on an additional Haas CNC mill, Fanuc wire EDM, and a Hurco CNC lathe.

Chris’ extensive knowledge in machining allowed him to build his core business around automation equipment builds, tooling (blanking, progressive, forming dies), and machine fixturing projects.

“Prior to operating my own business, I worked for a major window producing company.  Holding position as a Tool and Die Maker, then moving into leadership roles as Tooling Manager and eventually to the position of Manufacturing Engineering Manager.  Through this development, I have been able to combine skills, with strategic planning and design.”
