Summer Running On All Cylinders

This summer we have been going and going and going…

We love to create precision machine parts that really are things of beauty. When I first started working here I was amazed by the incredible tolerances we were able to hold. The scrap colors, the whirl of machinery, and people going by. Working together with the best suppliers in the country for heat treat, material, and plating. We are proud to be an American manufacturer providing jobs and creating opportunities.

“America’s greatest strength has always been its hopeful vision of human progress.” John McCain

The products we make go into items we use in our daily lives faucets, cars, trucks etc. It is a thing of wonder to tangibly sit and hold the items we make.

Please stop by and see for yourself next time you are in the Chicagoland area.
