    WHAT MAKES US GOOD AT WHAT WE DO?

    EXPERIENCE:
    In a business where knowledge and experience is everything, we have been blessed with an incredibly dedicated staff, low turnover, and the expertise that comes from stability. Our sales engineers are constantly being educated on the latest trends and products, using this information to the customers advantage by proposing leading edge solutions to their manufacturing problems. The inside support staff is anchored by specialists averaging 10 years in this business and they are always available to process orders, quote tooling requirements or procure parts for the products we represent.

    INDUSTRY LEADING PRODUCT LINES
    Our 27 years of steady sales growth is a direct result of our insistence on representing only the best product lines the industry has to offer. Our commitment to this philosophy has been of great benefit to our customers, with whom we have built lasting relationships. We continually review our product offerings to stay on top of the latest technological offerings.

    STRATEGICALLY LOCATED FACILITIES WITH INVENTORY
    Unlike many in the fabrication business, we do not operate out of office suites without inventory. We have made the commitment of placing warehouse/office facilities in close proximity to our customer base and will continue to expand locations as necessary. The ability to demonstrate equipment under power enables the client to evaluate machines ''hands on''. Our strategy also allows each location to periodically host large open house shows with an extensive variety of machine builders represented on site.

    DEDICATION TO SERVICE
    Each location is staffed with trained service technicians dedicated to the set-up, training, and on going support of the products we represent. This is an area we will continually strive to make improvements, as it is critical to customer loyalty.

    USED EQUIPMENT BUSINESS
    Since our business inception we have always been heavily involved in the used equipment industry. This has helped clients control costs of equipment acquisitions, update capacity through trade-ins, or to outright dispose of excess manufacturing capacity. We inventory a wide range of used equipment in each of our warehouses and encourage you to contact us for any of your machinery requirements. Despite the changes in the used market we will continue to expand in this important area.
