Quality Machine & Fabrication 


Jeremiah Brackett is the owner of Quality Machine & Fabrication.

How long have you been in business in Currituck County?

We have been in business in Currituck County for 18 years now.

Can you describe your business?

We are a family-owned machine and fabrication shop that has over 100 years of combined machining experience. We specialize in one off projects as well as Prototyping/Engineering, CNC Milling, Turning, Welding, Sheet Metal Fabrication and 3 Axis PlasmaCam.

Do you remember when you first made the decision to become a business owner?

Yes, I took over the family business when my dad came down with a debilitating illness and told me that he needed me to take over. I remember feeling the enormous responsibility of the task, but also with my naturally aggressive nature, I determined to grow this business into the best it can be.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I take pride in American made parts. My determined nature pushes me to constantly better myself to become the best machinist in Northeast North Carolina. Also, dealing one-on-one with people, building relationships, and continuing to grow industry in the county that will lead to training and jobs for our young people pushes me to keep on going.

Why Currituck County?

It's my home and has been since I was 8 years old, I love the land and the people.

What are your biggest challenges as a business owner?

Finding quality help from someone who is trainable, reliable, and/or knowledgeable is a big challenge for me in this industry. That, and staying consistent on delivering a top-notch quality product.


What are the biggest rewards?

I mentioned it above, but one of the biggest rewards is developing industry in this town that will one day create jobs for our young people. My reward is for the future generation to reap the benefits.

What sets you apart from other similar businesses?

A quality fabricated part at a fair price within a fair market value.

I am also a machinist with a manual background who has modern CNC capabilities, so I understand things thoroughly that another modern-day machinist may not understand.

My customers also always have a face or voice attached to my business. I don't think a lot of businesses have that desire or ability, so personability gets lost to the average consumer, but I strive to keep my relationships with people personable, because people are personal, so when a customer has a problem, usually I'm the one they call.

What's one piece of advice you would give to someone starting a business in Currituck County?

Never quit.
