The history of Blevins Group goes back to 1943 when Harold Aseltine and his son Howard Aseltine, started Extreme Precision Screw Products in the middle of a local junk yard. In 1951 they moved this first of now seven family owned businesses to 1838 Remell St. in Flint, Michigan, where they remain today. James Aseltine, another son of Harold’s, began Flint Centerless Grinding, Inc. a few years later in 1956. James was joined in the family business by his son Brian Aseltine who started Superior Gundrilling in 1986. In 1995, Tom and Janet Allen, daughter of James, took over operations of Flint Centerless Grinding and in 2008 Janet began the seventh of the family companies: JNet Services. JNet provides laser marking services with the latest in equipment Janet purchased in May 2009.
Blevins Screw Products, Inc. was started in 1957 by Wayne Blevins, who married Harold’s daughter Pat. They started with just a couple of machines in the corner of Extreme Precision Screw Products, and now have more than thirty machines in their facility on 1838 Remell St. Wayne and Pat’s sons Mark, Roger and Bruce all decided to join the family business. In 1976, Mark Blevins took over operations of Extreme Precision Screw Products after the death of Howard Aseltine and now runs the company with the help of his sons Steve and Jeff who make Blevins Group a fourth generation family business. In 1983, Roger Blevins acquired Borneman & Peterson, Inc. at 1810 Remell St. In 1985, Bruce Blevins took over operations of Blevins Screw Products, his son Ben has joined the company as the fourth generation. In 1989, when another local screw machine business was up for sale, Jerry Hobson, a nephew of Wayne and Pat’s, began Hobson Manufacturing Inc. in nearby Atlas, Michigan.
Today, all seven companies operate independently, but work together with state of the art equipment and the owners’ combined experience of over 300 years to produce quality products fitted to your needs.
