Deburring House was incorporated in 1979 and began doing business in a small 500 square foot facility in Berlin Connecticut. The small 2-3 man, “mom & pop” shop grew quickly, as word of a quality deburring service spread amongst the local manufacturing community. By 1985, a small addition was in the works and the shop averaged about 8 employees. The late eighty’s were tough for the aircraft parts manufacturing business, and the economy. In late 1993, the owner decided it was time to retire, the business ownership transferred to 3 current and former employees. Still a very small business with 5 employees, a renewed commitment to quality, and service, lead the charge forward for growth of the new organization. The economy had improved and the “Hi-Tech” industries were realizing a manufacturing boom in production of medical instruments.
Within a couple of years, the Berlin facility was outgrown and a search for a new home began. In 1996, DHI moved into its current, 12,000 sq. ft. facility, in East Berlin, CT. The demand for deburring services from local job shops continued to grow in the region, as out sourcing became the trend in the local aircraft engine industry. This demand fueled the growth of DHI to over 60 employees by 2008.
Today DHI is the industry leader in providing high quality deburring services of all types. DHI specializes in hand deburring of precision machined parts, not easily deburred by automated methods. DHI serves the southern New England region, but has performed operations for customers throughout the United States.
