CAM’D Machining Company got it’s beginnings during WWII. David Cook was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, where he ran an engine rebuilding shop.
After the war, Dave moved to Lancaster, PA and began working as a service manager at a local car dealership. In the late 1950s, Dave started working at Lanco Chain-Lock. During this time, Dave started a side business out of his garage machining and rebuilding engines, and CAM’D Machining Company was born.
Eventually, Lanco Chain-Lock closed it’s doors which provided Dave with an opportunity to dedicate himself to CAM’D Machining Company full time. In 1969, Dave’s son, Mike Cook, joined the company. Then, in 1980, Mike took over the business from his father.
Mike Cook is the current owner, now working alongside his own son, Andy Cook.
