The Red Book

Founder – Dayton A Rogers


A bit about our roots


In 1929, Dayton Rogers Manufacturing Company was formed. “Short Run Metal Stamping” was off and running, and the business of metal manufacturing was altered forever. From humble beginnings came early success – including the dial up toaster, the dry mounting press, and intricate Kodak typewriter tooling. Dayton Rogers began to grow.

A WWI veteran, Dayton contributed to the WWII victory by manufacturing integral parts for both air and ground efforts. To this day, Dayton Rogers Manufacturing proudly provides superior components to our military and aerospace industries – as well as medical, industrial, energy and everything in between. Our philosophy is, and always will be – your ideas and our capabilities know no boundaries. From toasters to satellites.

Dayton Rogers Manufacturing wrote the book on metal forming. Generally called “The Red Book”, this technical design manual is the foremost industry tool for high standards and preferred manufacturing disciplines. And with 4 locations, centered around the busiest manufacturing hubs in the U.S., we continue to expand our services while helping you achieve your vision. With every part and every improvement, for all your projects and challenges, we build on experience, advance your ideas, and form the future.
