Modern Machining: Celebrating a Small (and Growing) Business Success Story


In many ways, the story of Modern Machining LLC is the story of South Milwaukee’s continued path to redevelopment — a story of a young entrepreneur starting small, building his business the right way, and expanding for the future. Locally.

Today, we celebrate a company that recently moved from a small space 1204 Minnesota Ave. to 2205 12th Ave., leasing more than 20,000 square feet in the former Johnson Health Tech building (Line Material way back in the day).

I was proud to help owner Jason Scherer and his family cut a ribbon in May, celebrating their new location and a promising future as a manufacturer of specialty machined and machine-assembled components for more than a dozen companies, serving major hydraulic, firearm, power tool, medical, and railroad manufacturers, and more.

Modern Machining employs five people, with plans to add four more.

It started with one, Jason, who grew up in South Milwaukee and worked for multiple manufacturing companies before starting his firm in 2015.

How has growth come so quickly? From their website

Utilizing the newest technologies in manufacturing processes and software, Modern Machining stays a cut above the rest. Providing high quality component parts, at competitive prices on-time ever time.

It’s a winning formula I see repeated every day in businesses across South Milwaukee.

Thanks for investing locally, Modern Machining!
