In 1964, Ejay Eastin began machining parts on a Bridgeport mill in a rented two-car garage. As a subtier supplier for various machine shops around Southern California, he quickly earned a reputation for excellence that provided the breakthrough opportunity to produce a bracket for the landing gear of the Surveyor moon probes.

The exponential growth that followed brought two relocations, serving increasing customer demand with space for additional machines and equipment. Partnering with his son in 1981, they leveraged Sky’s ongoing training to add CNC machines and, eventually, CAD / CAM programming to their arsenal. These upgrades opened the door to manufacturing C-17 parts, starting in the late 80s, and Ejay’s Machine rapidly gained the distinction of having parts on every C-17 in existence.

Retiring in 1994, Ejay passed the company on to current President, Denise Eastin, with Sky retaining the Vice President mantle. Together they have continued to expand the customer base, aircraft programs, and capabilities of the business. Working directly with various prime aerospace contractors – including Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Northrop Grumman, BF Goodrich, Raytheon, Super98, and SpaceX – Ejay’s has earned multiple Preferred Supplier awards due to the efforts of our exceptional team.
