Located in South Central Idaho, Christensen Machine, Inc. (CMI) is one of the Northwest's premier precision and general machining shops.

In 1994 Robert and Michael Christensen joined the shop adding machining technology and business administration skills to the expanding operations.

In 1995 CMI expanded its Computer Numeric Control (CNC) capabilities by purchasing a DAEWOO 10HC lathe with a 14" swing, 20" centers and a 10 tool holder. With a growing customer base CMI's labor force grew to six full time employees. An office manager, production assistant and a CNC operator were added.
