Customer Success Stories

The Robert E. Morris Company is fortunate to work with diverse New England customers whose businesses reflect the Yankee ingenuity, advanced technological skills, and longevity associated with the region. 

Every customer's manufacturing needs and challenges are different; in our daily business we regularly face jobs that stretch technology and engineering.  In the end, all parties typically gain new knowledge and that's the advantage of working in an ever changing industry like ours.  It is never "business as usual" and that's the way we like it. 

We are pleased to share with you inspiring stories that relate customer successes and, we are proud to have had the opportunities to work with countless inspirational customers and exciting projects since our inception in 1941.
