Manufacturer of the Year 2019

“The industry, back then, was actually having a really hard time,” he said. “Everything was going overseas to China. So, I toook an alternate route while still having actual CNC machines in my basement in my house. I actually had a drive-in basement, and I had a CNC machine down there.”

That alternate route was corporate information technology.

Svarc is back in manufacturing now, and the basement is now a 22,000 square-foot plant in Machesney Park.

Machesney Park manufacturing company

MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. (WTVO) – Being precise can be a good philosophy in life. It’s also what has kept a local family-owned business thriving for four decades, even with a change of families.

Dean Svarc, owner of J C Milling, 1275 Turret Drive, feels passionate about manufacturing, so much so that he and his wife, Dominique, bought the company in 2015.

Svarc’s career really began in the ’90’s, after taking machining classes in high school.
