Custom Manufacturing & Engineering Relocates To Pinellas Park

Custom Manufacturing & Engineering (CME) has moved from 2904 N. 44th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg to 3690 N. 70th Ave. in Pinellas Park.

According to CME spokesperson Fred Munro, the company needed more space for production of its technological equipment products and wanted to upgrade its facilities to present a more polished look to its visiting clientele. "Most of our customers are from out of town and this is a more professional location," says Munro. "We are closer to restaurants and hotels. It's better for hosting our clients."

CME is a high-technology business that develops and produces electrical power devices, remote sensors, and special test and support instrumentation for military and other industrial applications. Many of its clients are members of the military or federal employees.

Munro says the new facility offers 49,000 square feet, increasing its former space by 19,000 square feet. "We did a build out to improve a conference room and some offices," explains Hill. "But what the employees are most excited about is that there is now plenty of parking."

CME was founded in 1997 by former employees of Lockheed Martin and has contracts with all arms of the U.S. military, federal agencies and private companies. The company is currently operating under the leadership of Dr. Nancy Crews. Awards include the U.S. Small Business Administration's Tibbet's Award for Research and Development Excellence and's Diversity Award. CME also was included in Deloitte & Touche's Florida's High Tech Corridor Fast 50 in 2002.
