Precision. In one word, that sums up what we aim for at Leister Custom Machining. Whether it’s the way we execute our work, handle your timeline, or build a relationship with you, our goal is to set a standard that simply make us stand out.


In 2014, Nate Leister chose to “come home” with his wife and children to Hawley, Minn., and put his 18 years of experience as a machinist to work. The goal was to operate a custom machining business built on small-town values, while featuring big-time quality, fast lead times and fair prices. Since then, an abundance of customers have enjoyed the precise, beautiful work of Leister Custom Machining on materials ranging from steel to aluminum to plastic, and beyond.


What gets us excited to go to work each day at Leister Custom Machining? Our experts are driven by providing precision-machined parts… the kind of stuff that makes people step back and say, “Wow!” Our goal is to offer first-class service and fast lead time at unbeatable prices… all while appreciating where we came from by giving back to the community. We are proud to be anchored by incredible customers, who have come to trust us for fast and friendly service and quality workmanship.
