Stock Design and Machine expanding in Virginia Beach
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Stock Design and Machine, a full-service machining company, will expand operations in Virginia Beach. The company was established in 2015 by a former Navy SEAL and mechanical engineer. The company is certified as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business.
Stock Design and Machine is a full-service computer numerical control machine shop with some of the most accurate and fastest CNC tools in a temperature-controlled manufacturing space. The company serves a range of industries, which include aerospace, gas and oil, and military special operations forces to produce turnkey manufacturing, machining, design, engineering services, light assembly and fabrication.
The company recently secured two significant contracts and needs to expand operations to accommodate this new work and growth. The contracts include work for a manufacturer of plasma coating lines for automobile plants and a builder of conveyor systems.
“This is an ideal business for this vibrant business corridor,” said Warren D. Harris, director of Virginia Beach Economic Development. “The company is on a trajectory path and aligns perfectly with our advanced manufacturing industry sector.”
Stock Design and Machine is located in the YesOceana corridor and will acquire new machinery and tools to expand its current machining operations and accommodate even more growth.
According to its website, the YesOceana program consists of zoning ordinances and economic incentives to foster the conversion of nonconforming businesses in the Accident Potential Zone 1 into conforming ones and relocating ones that cannot be converted to another part of Virginia Beach. It is the only program of its kind in the country, and YesOceana now serves as a model for other localities facing problems with encroachment around air installations.
