In 1945 Service Machine Shop Inc began serving as a general Job Shop serving a single plant that manufactured rugs. In the early 60′s the textile industry was booming and SMS quickly adapted by becoming the first custom manufacturer in the area. In the beginning, SMS supplied OEMs with rolls for all types of machinery.
Later, textile mills found that they could use SMS for Roll rework, along with replacement or spare rollers for all types of equipment.
As word spread about the capabilities and versatility of SMS, OEMs around the country began using SMS to Supply Rolls for heat processing equipment. Our conveyor rolls are used in furnaces, ovens, quenches, and cooling unit equipment.
The industry is ever expanding. The nearly 70 years of business history, and over 250 years of combined machining experience, has enabled SMS to not only keep up but stay ahead of the changes in the technological advances of the industry.
SMS has now supplied rolls for equipment being used in countries such as the US, Canada, Mexico, England, Turkey, Pakistan, China, India, and Phillipines. Our product is currently in corporations such as: Mercedes-Benz, Ford Motor, Volkswagen, Volvo, Suzuki, and Mercury Motors.
We would like to meet your companies needs, and we feel certain that we will meet and exceed the quality, pricing, and delivery requirements you may have.
