Serving the Metal Industry


A large part of our past, present, and future is service and repair for primary metal producers. This work comes from aluminum reduction plants and rolling mills, steel recyclers and rolling mills, and silver, copper and gold producers.

The diverse applications and extreme conditions present at these sites require that both motors and driven equipment be remanufactured to the highest standards. We have earned a reputation in this industry for reliability and on time service.
