Protomatic offers drafting support, prototyping, production and assembly of custom parts and systems manufactured for many companies within the automotive industry. We have the capacity to handle a single prototype as well as large production orders specializing in CNC multi-axis vertical machining centers, C-Axis CNC lathes for precision turning, welding, plasma cutting, CAD, CAM, CMM, fixtures, tools and dies. In addition, custom parts made from billet or custom castings are available.
Given the current state of the auto industry, Protomatic's early and well-timed divergence into additional industries has positioned the company for unprecedented growth in additional markets unaffected by the current automotive downturn. Nevertheless, our expertise as a supplier to Michigan's most prominent automobile manufacturers helped to solidify our dominance in precision automotive CNC machining and custom component manufacturing at a pivotal time in our development - and for that we are very thankful.
Protomatic has been manufacturing custom OEM components and assemblies for everything from powertrains to instrument panels since 1971. Through our large facilities, diverse capabilities, vast equipment resources, and conservative, steadfast business practices, we at Protomatic have been able to supply fast, efficient service to countless satisfied customers in the automotive supply industry for nearly four decades. Let us show you the Protomatic difference.
The manufacturing of CNC powertrain components is driven by economy in manufacture, high product quality and reliability, improved fuel efficiency, decreased pollution, and longer life expectancy. The resulting designs have led to higher internal pressures, greater forces, and increased complexity. This, in turn, has led to demanding requirements for quality control throughout the entire powertrain manufacturing process.
In terms of CNC powertrain machining, OEMs require a high-volume precision CNC machining job shop. They also require greater levels of flexibility to juggle market shifts while shortening the time-to-market.
Protomatic’s involvement in supplying these advantages to the automotive industry is quite extensive. We have manufactured custom OEM components and assemblies for starter motors, alternator housings, brake system valves and housings, EGRs, and fuel pump systems. We also manufacture prototypes and service parts such as throttle bodies, mass airflow sensors, and temperature sensors.

Our experience in the automotive industry has found us manufacturing plastic buttons, instrument panel beams, instrument panel background lighting, light pipes, display clusters, and various interior panels for many automobile makes and models.
We often provide prototype panels during the design stage. Size, shape, color, fit and other characteristics of our custom instrument-panel components must be perfect considering that the electrical components, illumination, lettering, and gauges must all fit intricately. By giving you a turnkey package, you will save valuable time and money by eliminating the need to search for multiple suppliers.

Vintage automobile enthusiasts sometimes encounter a situation where the part they desperately need is no longer manufactured. At Protomatic, we not only have a passion for vintage autos, but we also are capable of providing services to collectors and those who restore vintage machinery of any type.
For those truly hard-to-find parts, we offer reverse engineering and small volume production of vintage car components. Our ability to manufacture classic car parts has come in very handy for some vintage auto enthusiasts. We have re-manufactured convertible top handles and top pump motor assemblies for Avanti, engine lifters for Cadillac, and screws and brackets for Rolls Royce.
