B & B Precision Wire EDM, Inc. was started by father and son Bud Knell & Bob Knell in 1994 as a EDM shop only. As the need for milling services increased the Milling Department was added to help turn B & B into a one stop shop. Bud’s years of experience as a Tool Maker started at Sparrows Point and his son, Bob’s, Journeyman Tool & Die Maker certification came from years of working at M.S. Willett, Inc. Bob, the current President, runs the EDM department. Bud’s daughter, Sharon Miller, joined the family business in 1998 running the office and keeping the guys in line. Sharon’s sons became the 3rd generation in 2001 when Michael Miller joined the company thru a work study program and is currently running our Milling Department. Jason Miller was added to the team in 2016 to work as the Operations Manager insuring that jobs run smoothly thru the shop.
B & B is located in a 8,700 square foot facility located in the Forest Hill Industrial Airpark convenient to I-95. We pride ourselves in providing top quality Wire EDM and machining services.
