MAKstride was started by Monty Moshier who first became interested in prosthetics at age 11, when his father lost his leg below the knee in a lumber milling accident. While Moshier was earning his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Purdue University, his father’s prosthetist asked for help with a new prosthetic foot he was developing, and Moshier’s path was set. He began consulting on prosthetic design and manufacturing and in 2006, he launched his own company, Makstride. (In addition to running Makstride, Moshier teaches aeronautical engineering and serves as chief technologist for a company that develops inspection systems to identify metal fatigue cracks.) At first, Makstride designed and manufactured feet for distribution by another company, but due to a need for expansion, Moshier formed a sister company, Makstride Prosthetics, to assume sales, development, and marketing functions for its own products. and forming MAKstride LLC, a machine shop and manufacturer, to make and produce the manufactured goods. After moving sales, development, and marketing functions to its sister company, Monty got to work with the machine shop side looking for contracts and fostering relationships with potential customers. As MAKstride grew, so did its level of expertise in the manufacture and handling of the various materials that its customers needed machined. With 12 years of experience MAKstride LLC, the machine shop is proficient in machining various types of materials ranging from titanium, aluminum, and steel down to various types of plastics and composites including carbon fiber. As a machine shop, MAKstride has had experience with machining medical parts, robotics parts, firearms components, specialized tooling, ornamentation, and oddities from various requests customers have made centered on manufacturing. MAKstride is aimed at the manufacture of high-precision parts and works at meeting market demand by putting quality first in all that it does. It is with a mindset focused on quality that MAKstride has obtained and maintained contracts from various high-profile companies. MAKstride is an ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 Certified company.
