Corporate Philosophy

Join the Challenge With Us!

Lincoln Manufacturing started business in 1995 as an affiliate company of Toshin Co., Ltd. Japan, and in 2002, became independent from Toshin Co., LTD. Most affiliate companies have to report or ask for a budget approval to their parent company, but as an independently owned and operated company we do all decision making at our location in Stanford, KY. We have the ability to make decisions and we can make them very quickly. Because of this circumstance, we have developed new manufacturing technologies to produce parts which require fine blanking or forging press by utilizing a conventional press. After the economic recession in Japan back in 1990's, many smaller stamping companies had to face very difficult matters. During the recession, companies which have exclusive technologies survived. Similar signs can be seen here in the US. Therefore, LML is trying to develop technologies that only LML can obtain and to remain very competitive in the stamping business and abroad. Join the challenge with us!
