JS Foster’s customers have come to expect nothing short of flawlessly finished and functional parts thanks to over five decades of machining experience and innovation.

Since our founding in 1970, our machine shop has grown from humble beginnings to a modern CNC shop serving a diverse client base. In addition, the shop has also spawned three additional companies of our own; the world-famous Islander Fishing Reels, JSF Technologies, a high-tech traffic solution provider, and most recently our in-house powder coating division JSF Coatings.

Through innovation internally and work with our clients, JS Foster is constantly pushing the envelope of what is possible. We hope to do the same with you in the future. Need help solving a manufacturing problem? Reach out now.
