Bridgeport Machines Ltd. was a renowned manufacturer of milling machines and machining centers based in the United States. Founded in 1938 by Rudolph F. Bannow and Magnus Wahlstrom in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the company quickly became known for its innovative and high-quality milling machines.

Bridgeport Machines revolutionized the milling industry with the introduction of the Bridgeport Series I Standard, a vertical milling machine that featured a turret-style, ram-and-turret head design. This design became iconic for its versatility, ease of use, and ability to perform a wide range of milling operations with precision.

Throughout the 20th century, Bridgeport Machines Ltd. expanded its product line to include various models of milling machines and machining centers, catering to the needs of diverse industries such as aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing.

In the late 20th century, Bridgeport Machines Ltd. faced challenges due to changes in the manufacturing landscape and increased competition. The company underwent several ownership changes and restructuring efforts. Eventually, in 2004, the Hardinge Group acquired Bridgeport Machines Ltd., continuing to manufacture and support Bridgeport milling machines under the Hardinge brand.

Despite its eventual acquisition and transformation, Bridgeport Machines Ltd. remains a significant part of milling machine history, known for its enduring legacy of innovation and quality craftsmanship.
