What do we do? JCB
Performance Machine is a contract Job Shop that specializes in Multitasking CNC Turning. We manufacture CNC turned parts to your specifications, processes, and drawings. Parts typically running on our CNC turning centers range from 1/2" diameter to 8" diameter made from materials ranging from steels/stainless steels, plastics, brass/aluminums, and aerospace alloys such as Inconel and Titanium. We also offer support for Design for Manufacture when our customers would like to understand what design modifications could provide better cost efficiency.
Where are we? JCB Performance Machine is conveniently located in central New Hampshire. We are approximately 500 feet west of Exit 17 off I-93 in North Concord.
Who do we serve? JCB Performance Machine serves a multitude of industries. Our customers include Aerospace, Military, Vision Illumination, Energy/Petroleum, OEM Machinery, and Performance Automotive manufacturers.

In 2006, JCB Performance Machine moved from the 1,500sf Epsom, NH location where we started into a 4,000sf facility located in Concord, NH to accommodate our growth and requirements for new equipment. JCB acquired an Overhead Bridge Crane that could access any point on the manufacturing floor. We took delivery of a new Mazak SQT200MSY too which provided additional capabilities over our existing Mazak SQT18M, including a sub spindle for second side part work and a Y axis for additional milling capability. The new building provided enough room to meet our needs as well as room for future expansion.

James Blanco, Owner/President of JCB Performance Machine, began his path in CNC Turning in 1995 working in a high production CNC machining environment for a major Aerospace manufacturer in NH. His employment was originally to primarily support his passion, "street car" type drag racing. In 2000, he moved on to other challenges in CNC turning at a Thermal Spray Equipment manufacturer where he continued his experience and found his new passion for Mazak CNC turning centers that had the ability to Turn parts as well as Mill and Drill features normally considered "secondary operations". He was programming, quoting, troubleshooting, and producing parts representing many configurations and unique challenges. Jim worked directly with engineering on new product applications, learned CAD, and earned his Green belt in Six Sigma.
In 2003, Jim was ready for another change. He wanted to continue producing parts on Mazak turning centers, but also wanted to work with different varieties of parts and materials. He wanted to work directly with customers and use his experience to offer them solutions for their manufacturing needs. He would utilize his somewhat compulsive nature to produce products to a quality level with the intention of exceeding his customers expectations and deliver them when they needed them. With the help and patience of his wife, Sara, he started JCB Performance Machine. He operated during 2nd shift hours while still working for his day job. By 2006, he had built a strong customer base by holding true to the ideals he started the business with. His business's work load had grown to a level that couldn't be sustained with the 2nd shift hours alone, so he left his day job and set out to continue building his business, adding capabilities, and working with his customers on a full time basis.
What is Multitask Turning? Multitask Turning means that we employ the latest turning technologies that can perform mill, drill, and tapped features all in the same operation as the turning. Complex features no longer require another operation, machine, operator, and que time typically associated with secondary operations. What does that mean to our customers? It means a more stable machining process, capable of producing and repeating a better product.
