      Metalist completed The Largest Remanufacture of a Mechanical Press in the United States, and probably in the world, in a record time of 9 months!  It was on a 6,000T Ajax Press.  We also had it running in our plant standing up!  The OEM had to run it off on its side when they made it the first time…. That gives you an idea on how large our facilities are!  That press was shipped to England.  We also have remanufactured one of the largest Upsetters… a 10”!   We have remanufactured and shipped presses to Canada, Mexico, Korea, Germany and many other countries besides the USA.   We also do emergency work all across this country.  Most clients really don’t care if we are a few miles away, if we can get their press running days, weeks or even months sooner than someone closer.       Send us in a smaller project so you can check us out how it is to work with us, so when you do have a major press emergency you’ll already know us.  If you already have a great working relationship with another source… keep us in mind for as a back up in case they can get something done as quickly as you need it.
