Our roots as a company reach back to 1916 when we began as a manufacturer of oak tanned leather belting.

We have evolved considerably since then but still work to provide our customers with quality products delivered on time. Our capabilities include redesign of existing parts to take advantage of modern materials and manufacturing methods.

We are pioneers in the field of water jet cutting of friction materials which has enabled us to save manufacturers significant time and money by providing superior quality parts in remarkably short periods of time.

We have for example, electronically received AutoCAD files of required parts via the Internet at noon and Next Day Air shipped the completed order the same day.

Our continuous process improvement has enabled us to substantially improve our turnaround times. CAD and CAM systems, water jet cutting, larger ovens and more sophisticated coating and finishing operations have shortened our process time considerably.

Nonetheless we are constantly working to improve what we feel are the quickest lead times in our segment of the industry.

Our water jet cutting capability allows us to save substantial amount of set up and process time and has allowed our customer’s engineers the ability to redesign parts to take advantage of shapes that were impossible to produce only a few years ago.

Our bonding process is carefully monitored every step of the way to insure you receive a high quality part, on time, as economically as is currently possible. We do our work carefully, we do it efficiently and we do it well. Challenge us! We’ll respond.
