Family Owned Business

Central Valley Machine was Started in 1976 by Jerry and Audre Wursten. The company started in a storage unit as a one man farm equipment repair shop and has since grown into a multi million dollar manufacturing company with a diverse customer base and capabilities. Jerry and Audre have since retired and the company is now owned and managed by their two sons Bret and Brad Wursten. “Back in the early stages of the company my Mom would take on orders and run the business aspect of things during the day while my Dad would work a second job. After he got off work from his day job he would come in at night to machine and complete the orders that were taken during the day. Growing up I watched my parents live the american dream, they worked hard every day to make this company into what it is today.” (Bret Wursten CEO)

CVM History




Thrill Rides


“Central Valley Machine has always had a reputation of being able to make things that other companies can’t make. We’re able to manufacturer very small parts, medical device parts that actually go inside the body, to very large commercial jobs. We’ve done things like building dam sections for reservoirs as well as small products, parts that hold really tight tolerances. Like I said, we’ve been known over the years to be able to do things that other machine shops can’t do.”
