Release Date: October 2nd, 2017
We are pleased to announce that Swissturn/USA has purchased the fastener line of miniature number and UNM screws, self-tapping screws, hex nuts, flat washers, and turned parts from J.I. Morris Company. The J.I. Morris Company brand is recognized as the premier manufacturer of miniature fasteners.

We welcome J.I. Morris customers to Swissturn!

Swissturn/USA is a world-class precision Swiss screw machine products manufacturer.
Production of miniature screws and nuts will shift immediately to Swissturn’s Oxford, Massachusetts facility. Swissturn frequently uses its modern CNC Swiss screw machines for production of miniature parts, so assuming production of the J.I. Morris fastener line is a natural fit for the company.

Swissturn is employee owned (ESOP) and is ISO9001 registered.

J.I. Morris Company was founded in 1920 to supply the optical industry with polishing pads. As the company grew, lines of optical accessories and miniature screws were added. John B. Dirlam, who has been President of J.I. Morris Company for 37 years, served on the screw thread subcommittee that developed the industry standards for the Unified Miniature Thread series.  Mr. Dirlam will continue to consult with Swissturn to aid in the transition from the original Morris company to Swissturn.

The current J.I. Morris website ( ) will be maintained, so customers can continue to find resources and order through the website.  The polishing pad and miniature tap lines remain with the original J.I. Morris Company in Southbridge.
As the original J.I. Morris Company was winding down and ceasing production earlier this year, much of the inventory for popular items was depleted.  Swissturn expects to have some inventory shortages that will take some time to fill as we ramp up production of the J.I. Morris line.  Please be patient with us.  We will do our best to fill your miniature fastener needs.
J.I. Morris customers should update their contact records.  Michelle Duval will continue to be the main contact for J.I. Morris miniature fasteners.  ( .
