A&S Enterprise was founded in 2009 in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with a clear vision: to serve the custom machinery and precision parts needs of the area’s top companies. In 2017, A&S was purchased by Larry Anderson.
In 2019, Larry purchased Anderson Welding in Chassell and the two companies came together to become A&S Industrial. Today, A&S Industrial serves a wide variety of customers in several industries.
With each successful project, the reputation of A&S grew, enabling the company to gradually expand their customer base geographically and from an industry standpoint. Today, A&S-built machines and parts can be found across the globe, doing all types of work.
Larry has been a welder/fabricator for most of his life. In 2014, he started working for A&S Enterprise as a welder, fabricator, and manager. After growing the company by several employees, he purchased it in 2017, changed the name to A&S Industrial, and started looking for a larger space.
In 2019, Larry purchased Anderson Welding which provided a larger space for his growing business. He grew the company from 7 to 15 employees today. He has also invested in five new CNC machines to expand his team’s capabilities.
Larry also owns High Rock Designs, a custom metal furniture company based here in the Keweenaw.
Luke grew up on a dairy farm where he learned the basics of fixing things. In 2011 he received a 2-year welding degree from Ridgewater Technical Collage in Willmar, MN.
Luke then moved to Palmer, Alaska after college, where he was hired on as a welder/fabricator at a local job shop. After six months of fabricating, the shop needed another CNC machinist, so he jumped on the opportunity. In 2017 Luke worked his way up to Machine Shop Manager.
He has experience programming and running CNC Mills, Lathes, and Waterjet. He also has experience fabricating parts in the mining, marine, aerospace, farming, security, and other industries.
