vision was to start a precision metal stamping and fabrication
company with a personal touch that would work hand in
hand with suppliers and customers, creating a team like
atmosphere. Today that vision is still the foundation
of our continuing success."

tooling and machine shop, over two dozen presses ranging from
30 to 500 tons, and various machine operations that produce
parts daily as well as ship to meet your needs.
