Associated Design was founded in 1994 by Mark Klammer and Darrell Bernloehr as a partnership. In 2004 Darrell chose another career path and Mark became the sole proprietor. Associated Design started its operations at its current address renting a small area in the building. As its operations grew and machinery was added the firm required additional space and Mark purchased the building. Space not currently utilized is leased out on short term allowing for scaling as we continue to grow.
Mark’s career began in 1965 as a Machinery Repairman in the United States Navy. Over the years, Mark has added to the machining field by working initially as a machine operator for various firms, educating new machinists entering the field as a teacher at South Central College, joining various teams as a member in research and development, and mentoring many employees over the years. Mark has more than 40 years of knowledge and experience to lead his team in providing quality and precision work.

Over the years Associated Design has employed machine operators who aided greatly in making our operations a success. It is our philosophy that to best serve our customers, everyone at Associated Design from Mark Klammer on down, must be a machine operator to satisfy their needs quickly, with precision, at a competitive rate.
In April, 2015, Mark decided to start his semi-retired journey and sold Associate Design to Jason and Kari Loe. At that time, Associated Design became Associated Machining & Design, Inc. (AM&D)
Jason Loe comes from a background of 20+ years of machining experience as well as a wide variety of complexity.
Mentoring along side Jason is our son, Caleb Loe. Caleb comes to AM&D with two+ years of experience in machining. We are grateful to have a family owned and operated business.
