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.

Kiefer Tool machines industrial parts and custom hydraulic cylinders for industrial sector companies throughout the Midwest, the Middle Atlantic, the Northeast and portions of the Southern United States.  We machine heavy and long parts for manufacturing companies in Cleveland, Columbus, Youngstown, Erie, Toledo, Akron, Cincinnati, Rochester (NY), Fort Wayne, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Indianapolis, Chicago, Buffalo, Wheeling, St. Louis, Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville, Lexington, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Raleigh, Omaha, Louisville, Albany, Baltimore, Huntsville (AL), Farmington Hills (MI), Minneapolis, Charlotte, Norfolk (VA), Kansas City, Grand Rapids (MI), Memphis and Allentown (PA).

We provide extremely precise, punctual and reliable machining services to industrial operations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Illinois, New Hampshire, Maine, Kentucky, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Tennessee and Kansas. We also have customers in northern Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi.  Because of the prohibitive cost of shipping or transporting large parts and heavy manufacturing equipment components long distances, Kiefer Tool rarely serves heavy industry companies located in the Western portion of the United States or the deep south. Due to the cost of travel, Kiefer Tool engineers and field service technicians don’t normally travel to the Western or Northwestern states to inspect large parts, hydraulic presses or other manufacturing machines.
