We’ve been making turned parts for over 25 years. In 1990 Pioneer started with a few screw machines, centerless grinders and a young woman passionate about developing a machining business that delivers top-quality parts. From childhood, Aneesa Muthana had worked in her father’s bar grinding shop where she learned the business from bottom to top. While other girls got a Barbie for their birthday, she got a centerless grinder one year! At the ripe age of 20, her uncle purchased what would become Pioneer Service and three years later asked her to join as a partner. She said “yes”, but only on the condition that she become the president and run the company. This was only the beginning of tenacity that would not only launch Pioneer Service, but also give it staying power in the years to come.
Her uncle agreed, stepped back, and Aneesa poured her heart and soul into Pioneer Service’s success. The bar grinding experience was a natural launch pad for a business based on centerless grinding parts, which quickly evolved into making custom precision ground shafts on screw machines. Over the years Pioneer’s reputation as a quality manufacturer has grown, and in 2013, Aneesa launched the company into the CNC machining world, expanding the team and equipment capabilities.
Some milestones for the company include:
1995 – Moved to current location with 25,000 sq. ft. on Factory Road in Addison, IL
