- Originated from a combination of two companies in 1960 viz
Belcosons and Bel-Essex Engineering.
- The companies then engaged in sheet metal fabrications and caravan
- They entered the automotive component industry in 1975 with
the inclusion of small metal-pressed parts and welded assemblies.
- Merged with Microfinish Tooling, which was engaged in the manfacture
of large press tools for the motor industry in 1978.
- Acquired by Bel-Essex Corporation in 1981.
- Auto component manufacturing capabilities expanded to precision
turned and machined parts.
- Growth and technological advancement in all disciplines are
- 160 ton to 450 ton Mechanical presses.
- 150 ton to 250 ton C-frame mechanical presses.
- 10 ton to 60 ton C-frame mechanical presses.
- 150KVA Projection welding equipment.
- 6 axis robotic welding equipment.
- Precision turning and CNC machinery.
- 3D measuring equipment.
