History of Centennial Technologies

Centennial was founded in 1976 by James and Carolyn Hammis. The company was originally named Centennial Tool and its primary focus was the automotive industry in the mid-Michigan area. Even in the beginning Centennial made the commitment to supplying in-house, full scope manufacturing capabilities including engineering services, fabricating, machining, assembly, wiring and piping. The founders and the original employees were dedicated to growing the company by providing dependable and high quality tooling and equipment.

The Company's leadership pursued new and challenging industries and processes such as lost foam casting, chemical and food processes. Consistent investments in CAD and CNC equipment and technologies have made Centennial a leader in manufacturing capabilities, as well as obtaining ISO 9001 Certification.

Starting in the mid 90s, the company has pursued the robotics and automation industry. Centennial has integrated all major brands of robots(Fanuc, ABB, KUKA, Motoman) into numerous projects over the past few decades. We are also very proud of our relationship as an official "System Partner" with KUKA robotics.

The Company currently has over 80,000 square feet of capacity at two plants in Saginaw. Continuous improvement, unrelenting focus on quality and exceeding our customers' expectations have been the cornerstone of Centennial for over three decades.

Joe and Kelley Hammis are the second generation of owners and are committed to maintaining Centennial's solid reputation and leading the company into the future.
