Metco Industries, Inc.
Metco Industries, Inc. was created on January 1, 1982 in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, the "Powder Metal Capital of the World", with one press, a furnace and a tumbler. Our founders felt there was a need for a quality P/M facility both attentive and flexible to customers' ever changing requirements. Thus Metco began to manufacture and supply quality P/M parts to the OEM and other commercial end users of bushings, bearings, gears and other structural components. Over the past 35+ years Metco Industries has grown from a simple one-press shop to a modern 126,000 square foot facility employing over 240 people.
The last five to ten years have been an interesting and dynamic period for the entire P/M industry. Powder Metal is the fastest growing segment of production-oriented parts in the world. More and more companies are learning the advantages of using P/M parts not only in the automotive and lawn-garden industries but also those industries that are looking for different, repeatable, quality parts to replace other component manufacturing such as machine or die-cast. New material and equipment allows the P/M industry to manufacture components in volume to print specification or near shape configuration, therefore, reducing cost and lead-time.
We are proud of our experienced and friendly workforce we have developed over the past 35+ years. Our production continues to grow by utilizing our in-line facility to efficiently process P/M parts to the highest quality level possible.
- To continue providing quality parts and service to meet or exceed our customers' high expectations.
- To increase market awareness of P/M and penetration of additional market areas.
- To enter into supplier partnership with our customers providing continuous improvement to quality, delivery and service.
- To provide harmonious working relationships with our employees, emphasizing safety, quality and production.
