Unas Grinding Corporation was started in 1952 as an off-shoot of the Holland Machine Company.  The founder, Adolph Endrelunas, graduated from trade school as a machinist in 1935, and after working 7 years at the the Hartford Special Machine Company established the Holland Machine Company in 1943.  The Holland Machine Company quickly outgrew it’s original home, a two car garage, and by 1952 had thirty full time employees.  It was at this time the Holland Machine Company moved it’s precision grinding operation to a neighboring  four-thousand square foot building and operated this division under the name of Unas Grinding Corporation.

At it’s inception in 1952, Unas Grinding had three full time employees and mainly served the grinding needs of the Emhart Glass Company, Smythe Manufacturing and Pratt & Whitney.  Today, Unas Grinding employs nearly thirty people and has grown to nearly 18,500 square feet by adding five additions to the original building and purchasing a building at 26 Cherry Street.  Plans for additional expansion are now being investigated in an effort to better serve the growing needs of our customers.  Major customers of Unas Grinding include General Electric Aircraft Engines, United Technologies / Pratt & Whitney and IMO Industries / Warren Pump.
