In September 2005, Sara and Joe Odneal took a risk to fulfill one of Joe’s lifelong dreams; they purchased a very small machine shop by the name of Eastwood Machine. At that time, Eastwood was located in a tiny 1,300 square foot space with 2 manual mills and no employees. Over the next few years, Joe and Sara worked tirelessly to maintain the current customers, which were primarily medical device and commercial companies, as well as to acquire new customers in a wide range of industries. Soon thereafter, Eastwood had expanded into the suite next door to the existing shop, and the first few employees were hired. Eastwood also acquired its first CNC machining center.
By 2010, Eastwood had outgrown the small shop space. Eastwood Machine moved to a 7,000 square foot industrial space located in the Miramar area. Joe and Sara hired machinists, programmers, administrative staff, and quality inspectors. Eastwood’s machining capabilities were greatly expanded by the addition of 2 CNC vertical machining centers and 1 CNC turning center.
As the company further developed, Eastwood continued to place great emphasis on quality control. A state of the art inspection room was created including calibrated measuring instruments as well as a CMM and optical comparator. Based on Eastwood’s dedication to quality control and continual improvement, in December 2011, Eastwood earned ISO 9001:2008 certification.
By 2014, Eastwood yet again outgrew their shop space and moved into an 11,000 square foot building in Santee, which is where Eastwood Machine is currently located. Over the next two years, additional employees were hired. Another 3 CNC vertical machining centers were added along with 2 CNC horizontal machining centers, a wire EDM, a CNC CMM, and a laser engraver.
Currently, Eastwood works with customers in a variety of industries: aerospace, defense, homeland security, medical device, and commercial. In order to continually enhance and improve the business, Eastwood is always pursuing new customer relationships. The Eastwood Machine team enjoys taking on new and challenging projects.
