About Stafford Manufacturing Corp.

What We Do
Stafford Manufacturing Corp. is a manufacturer and distributor of shaft collars, rigid shaft couplings and specialty mechanical components used in power transmission, motion control, automation, and other OEM and MRO applications in both industrial and consumer products.

Our Mission

Founded in 1975, Stafford Manufacturing Corp. is built on commitment to quality products, superior customer service and employee development. Arthur Stafford started the company on a shoestring budget but with a clear vision of what was required to accomplish those goals. Today, after three major expansions, the founder remains at the helm – joined by several of those original employees and many of the company’s earliest customers. The commitment continues.
