Livingston-Tyler was established in 1951. The business began by making aluminum die-castings for Chrysler Air Temp, who made air conditioning units for the automobile industry. After running castings for several years for Chrysler Air Temp and other customers, the demand for finish castings became the direction of the industry, so several Screw Machines were purchased. As the years progressed different types of machines were purchased to help with the growth of the company. As the company observed changes being made in the machining industry they decided to change their business strategy and discontinue the Die-casting side of the business and concentrate on finish machining.This strategy worked well for the company for many years. In 1977, the owner's son, Craig Gebhart, joined him in the business. LTP continued to add new machines and in 1981 Craig introduced the company to its first CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) Machine. This gave the company the ability to branch out and offer customers a much wider variety of finished parts. By 1987 the business had out grown it's original location and it was relocated to its current location, a much larger building giving the company the ability to buy additional CNC equipment with automatic bar feeders. The business continued to grow, and in 1990, added its first CNC Swiss Machine allowing LTP to produce small, intricate and very tight tolerance parts. We continue to maintain relationships with some companies that we've been partners with for more than 35 years. Over the years the company has continually upgraded its equipment to meet the demands of the industry. The machines today are much more high tech' than their predecessors, with the most recent purchase in 2019 being a DMG Mori Mill/Turn CNC Lathe, which has the ability to perform many secondary operations such as milling squares, cross drilling, cross tapping, etc.
