Fredon Corporation offers complete manufacturing solutions for precision machining needs. Precision parts are manufactured to the customer’s specifications – each project is unique in material, size, and quantity. We also work with customers and their engineers to produce prototype parts and we specialize in difficult or challenging projects.
We’ve been in business since 1969, and always go “one step beyond” to provide our customers with the highest level of quality through planning, employee involvement, training, technology, and a highly effective quality-control system.
We also firmly believe in giving back to the community. Our founder and CEO, Roger Sustar, started a group called the AWT – Alliance for Working Together – to serve as a forum for manufacturers in Lake County to discuss common business issues. Over the last two years, the group has refocused their efforts to develop an Associates Degree in Advanced Manufacturing at Lakeland Community College.

Building Pathways to Careers in Manufacturing
The Alliance for Working Together (AWT) was started in 2002 as a small, informal group of manufacturers, who met to discuss topics of interest and best practices among local manufacturers. Finding skilled workers was quickly identified as one of the top challenges for our manufacturers. Promoting rewarding careers in manufacturing became the core mission of the organization. In 2012, the AWT Foundation became a 501-(c)3 non-profit. Since then, the AWT Foundation now has 500+ manufacturing companies, community organizations, and school members all engaged in promoting rewarding manufacturing careers!
