Reata Engineering is a contract manufacturer specializing in precision machining and assembly.
Reata provides prototypes, tooling, production machining and assembly to industries including aviation/aerospace, medical, semiconductor capital equipment, retail, automotive, industrial, optics, lighting, fluid handling, material handling and more.
Reata was founded by Grady Cope in October of 1993 with $6000 on a credit card to purchase a used manual lathe and mill. In December of the following year Reata added its first CNC mill and has consistently added equipment and people since. Reata’s sales have grown every year. Currently, we have eleven CNC production machines and one CNC coordinate measuring machine. In November of 2000 Reata purchased The Cone Mounter Company, which manufactures and distributes bearing heaters, and added a second location. In May of 2004 Reata purchased a new 25,000 square foot facility and moved both companies under one roof. This building will allow for significant expansion in the future.
