Founded in 1973, Turret Lathe Specialists started as a one man lathe shop located in Anaheim, California. Robert McBride Sr. had a vision when he founded TLS from scratch and knew that his son, Robert McBride Jr. would make that vision come to life. What started as a small garage shop, has now grown into a 10,000 sq foot machine plant with over 27 machines, state of the art technology and a loyal clientele. The hard work and dedication of the highly knowledable employees is what keeps Turret Lathe Specialists growing everyday.
