Listed below are the rates (time and materials) we charge manufacturing and industrial customers in the U.S. for machining, manufacturing, repair, fabrication, welding, on-site maintenance and assembly services. The following prices for our services are broken down into a range that reflects the minimum and maximum hourly rate we charge for performing that specific service. Each service, whether it is a machining or manufacturing equipment repair operation, is determined in the quoting process. Quotes are based on the complete scope of work requested and the cost to our customers is proportional to the amount of time our staff works to complete the required machining and fabrication operations. Factors that can affect the machining prices include material nature (steel, alloy, metal), design complexity, expediting, and handling.

Who We Serve And Where
Kiefer Tool provides large part machining services, primarily to medium to large scale manufacturing companies, although we also enjoy working with small family owned manufacturing businesses. Our engineers, machinists and mechanics spend most of their time repairing, rebuilding, maintaining, machining, manufacturing, fabricating, delivering and assembling large parts. Many of our firms operate hydraulic presses, which we repair, rebuild, manufacture and maintain on-site. We have a tendency to turn down offers to quote small part machining projects and normally leave the small stuff to competitors that don’t have a large capacity machine shop like ours. There are thousands of machine shops in the United States but only a handful of exceptional large part machining companies like Kiefer Tool.
While our engineers and mechanics normally machine large parts for customers in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Southeast and South Central regions of the United States, we occasionally do work for clients in the Southwest and Northwest. Most of our work comes from companies in the traditional manufacturing hubs such as the Rust Belt (Manufacturing Belt/Steel Belt/Factory Belt). These areas include Cleveland, Chicago, Buffalo, Milwaukee, Dayton, Gary (IN), Flint (MI) St. Louis, Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron, Toledo, Youngstown, the Pittsburgh-Lake Erie Region, the Detroit Industrial Region, the Lake Michigan Region, the Southern New England Region and the Southern Appalachian Region. We normally are not competitive on price, compared to local firms, when we quote large part machining services for firms in the West Region, Intermountain West Region and Pacific Coastal Region. Over the past 5 to 10 years, we have started accepting more large part machining services from firms in new areas of the United States where manufacturing is now thriving in 2019. The new manufacturing markets include Raleigh, the Omaha-Council Bluffs area, the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell region (GA), the Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills (MI) region, the Albany-Schenectady-Troy (NY) and Louisville.
