In 1983, Federal Mogul approached owners Ed Idzkowski and Harold Lundy that a tooling source was needed in the Virginia area. In 1984, a small shop was open in Christiansburg, VA. to support that Federal Mogul plant.

In 2012 a new building was built at a new location with 10 trained machinist. A modern machining facility that serves many companies across the southeast US, and even nation-wide. They take pride in their offering of tooling, fabrication, welding, water-jet cutting, and machine build services.

The St. Johns location has grown to an 18,000 sq. ft., 18 person facilities offering the latest technology in machining of tools steels, welding/fabrication, “turn key” machine build, and machine rebuild.

Both plants are 100% employee owned and perated as one, and motivated to offer the best in quality machining, “on time” service, and reliability to keep your company running smooth and efficiently.
