L’Anse Manufacturing Selected as Northwest Michigan PTAC Government Contractor of the Year 2016
(February 2017)

L’Anse Manufacturing is a precision machining company with a low volume, high mix approach and a special interest in projects with tight tolerances. Their primary markets are investment casting machining, light industrial manufacturers, and specialty products including medical, aerospace, and the military.

Even though they work with a variety of customers, after the recession in 2008 and 09, L’Anse Manufacturing saw the need to diversify. They started looking at government contracts and received assistance from the Procurement Technical Assistance Center.

“We started with L’Anse Manufacturing early on in their government contract stages,” said Don Makowski, PTAC Procurement Counselor. “Starting with training their staff, attending our training events, and all the way through finding government opportunities and responding to those opportunities.”

“They allowed my crew to design their future,” said Mark Massicotte, L’Anse Manufacturing President. “When they needed help they picked up a phone and there was a resource.”

Massicotte says the assistance from PTAC has helped L’Anse Manufacturing land government contracts that have been instrumental in the company’s progress over the past few years.

“We’re really hitting a very good spot,” said Massicotte. “We got a large contract in 2016. We also at the end of the year got our first five-year contract.”

The work they’re doing has earned L’Anse Manufacturing recognition as the Northwest Michigan PTAC Government Contractor of the Year.

“L’Anse Manufacturing is a prime example of the correct steps to take as far as succeeding in government contracting,” said Makowski. “They took each step as part of the process which started out with smaller government contracts and worked up to larger government contracts.”

“PTAC is a wonderful thing, but it’s the individual people in PTAC that really bring the success forward,” said Massicotte. “So when it’s time, step forward, and you’ll find it a very rewarding investment in your time.”
