Meet the Team


Carl H. Baxter

My experience with single spindle and multiple spindle automatic screw machines helped the transition to CNC machining.  Today our team has developed skills to utilize advanced laser techniques to create complex and traditional components efficiently.

I founded Baxter Machine Products in 1976 with the intent to provide quality precision based machining services, now in 2017 my team and I are transitioning into AC Henry Co. a premier advanced manufacturing plant utilizing local tradesmen and cutting edge machinery.  We look to the future in the form of even more advanced services such as metallic laser printing, mass production CNC, metallurgical services, and reverse engineering capabilities from our brand new computerized production machines.

I started by sweeping the floors in Baxter Machine Products and then moved onto operating the machines. From there, l went to York Technical Institute for Computer Aided Drafting and Design.
