“In the race for quality, there is no finish line”
Drake Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1952 by Benny Stemple and is now located in Clinton Township, Michigan. Beginning as a small 4 man operation, Benny never imagined his dreams and ambitions would lead to a 70,000 square foot facility with more than 100 employees. In 1964 Richard & Lee Stemple joined their father and today continue to strive in the competitive manufacturing environment with a vast variety of manufacturing equipment and quality products.
With our versatile manufacturing and assembling capabilities, we are able to use our innovative expertise to meet the most demanding customer requirements. Our customers include many major OEM companies in the heavy truck, agriculture and automotive markets.
One of our specialty products is the manufacturing and assembling of gear shift levers and transmission components for the Class 8 heavy duty truck market. We have dedicated work cells for this unique commodity which starts from raw materials and continues through extrusion, welding, painting and finishes with a complete assembled product.
We also have the capability to design and make our own tools, fixtures and special gauges. This allows Drake to meet any customer specific job requirement. It also allows us to stay competitive on price quotes by passing the savings on to our customers.
Our successful quality, engineering, purchasing and employee team contributions have maintained Drake Enterprises, Inc.’s successful growth and continuing success.
