What Client's are Saying.....

"Hello Speedgrip, Wanted to let you all know that we are very impressed with the customer service and response time we have received. I am a primary purchaser for Sandvik Coromants Engineered Tools Division. I have been working with Barry Neilson and Stephanie Makin and have not seen this level of customer service in a very long time! Thank you!"


"This company is the best. I had a project where I needed ZERO runout on an old CNC lathe. By working with these folks I was able to hold a +/- .01 microns with a 16 Ra. They are happy to teach you how to achieve your needs."

~Mike Bissonette

Kevin Snyder President Speedgrip Chuck

In 1946 founder Richard Ernest began manufacturing the standard line of Single Taper chucks and collets designed by his father Fred Ernest. The company grew, developing a full line of internal and external gripping standard and custom built workholding products.

In 1965 Speedgrip Chuck moved to the then-new present facility and continued to grow in size and workholding product line development.

In 1973 Gary Renaud, (son-in-law to Mr. Ernest) acquired ownership of Speedgrip Chuck, furthering continuing the family owned and operated tradition.

In 1994 the Cameron Company, with a full line of hydraulic chucks and arbors, and Madison Face Driver companies were acquired further adding to the available workholding product lines.

In December 2015, the Stratford-Cambridge Group of Plymouth, MI purchased the Speedgrip companies, operating with the same management, at the same facility, and continuing on the well known and established workholding tradition.
