Developments Inc. was incorporated in 1947 by Al Newman and Roy Brooks. They opened our sister company, Newbrook Machine Corporation, in 1951. More recently, Excelco & Newbrook merged to become Excelco/Newbrook,
Inc. Newman and Brooks had held major

Their original vision was to create a company which would provide a single source of supply for complex projects procured by large companies and government agencies.
The first purchase order came from the Westinghouse Small Motor Division which had been started in the former Curtis Plant. 90 percent of our current business can be directly traced to this original order which we believe is a testament to all the years of meeting and exceeding our customers' needs.
Our history has been to focus on two to three small niche markets with the intent of becoming the supplier of choice in these markets. The niches have tended to change as technologies have evolved, but the primary customer base has remained quite constant. These niches have included:
Newman's sons, Russ and Doug, joined the businesses in 1970 and 1975. Newman purchased Brook's interest at his retirement in 1980 and Newman's sons purchased his interest at his retirement in 1985. After 20 years as President of the company, Russ sold his interest to Chris Lanski, who is the Company President & CEO.
We remain dedicated to the
founders' original vision. We have a national reputation as unique suppliers
of complex metal components and assemblies used in high tech applications by
the premier prime contractors, government agencies and universities. We also
manufacture similar equipment for high end commercial applications.
