We’re All About Family

Northland Screw Products, Inc. was founded in 1977 by Dan Martinson. He started the company with a $10.00 check, at the time the check was written, it was no good. This was the beginning of an enduring attitude at Northland. Dan knew that it was not going to be easy. Nothing that is worthwhile is ever easy. His determination and strong will would forge the company along for many years to come.

Sadly, Dan passed away in 2009. Determined to carry on the family business and carry on the hardworking attitude that began with Dan, his sons, Rob and James, now run the company. They have both been active in the family business for a number of years and hope to continue to grow into new markets and be a valuable partner for Northland’s customer base as the company moves forward.

Northland Screw Products is now a second generation precision manufacturer, specializing in CNC turning, CNC swiss, screw machine, and CNC milling. We have a “quick turn” department to handle small orders with a two or three day turnaround, while still handling long run, and high volume production orders. Northland Screw Products, Inc. is equipped with in-house tool making and rigid quality control systems to insure that every part meets our customers’ specifications.

“Our philosophy is to invest in our future and this means researching and purchasing the latest and greatest equipment to meet and/or surpass our customer’s needs and requirements. As the world of manufacturing evolves, we respond by adapting our technology, and giving our customers the service and delivery systems they require to compete successfully,” James Martinson, Co-Owner.

Our customers are our Family

At Northland. we take great pride in our valued relationships that we have built over the years. Being a family-run business, our customers, employees, vendors and suppliers mean the most to us. Once you are a customer, you are treated like part of the Northland family. 

Honesty, value, trustworthiness, continuous improvement, and quality are words that define how we run our family business.
