Chandler Industries was founded by Chandler Olson, who started his modest machine shop in Montevideo MN in 1962. Mr. Olson worked diligently throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to grow the business he had founded and was effective in doing so. After a long and successful career, he sold the thriving enterprise to new owners in 1986 to retire. In 2011 Arch Equity Partners acquired Chandler Industries after being drawn to the business, its capability and its people. After the initial acquisition by Arch Equity Partners in 2011, Chandler experienced impressive growth through organic means as well as a number of strategic acquisitions which have allowed Chandler to expand the capability and capacity it offers its customers.
Chandler aims to be the supplier of choice for those customers within the Aerospace, Defense, Industrial, Medical and other markets who are seeking a manufacturing partner capable of producing highly specified machining, fabrication and assemblies.
