About Montana Precision Products

One of Butte’s premier innovative precision manufacturing companies is Montana Precision Products (MPP). Montana Precision Products was created in 2013 when SeaCast, Inc., owned by Butte natives Mike and Bert Robbins, and General Electric formed a 50-50 joint venture. The combined expertise of GE Aviation and SeaCast resulted in a company that manufactures precision parts for jet engines and other industrial customers. Their high-tech plant is located in the Montana Connections Park just west of Butte. One of the many precision products MMP manufacturers is used in a new generation of GE engines called LEAP. LEAP engines are expected to be installed in Airbus’s A320neo, Boeing’s 737 MAX and the C919 from Comac.
