Yoder 100th Anniversary - And the Winners Are....

Yoder Manufacturing turns 100 Years Old in 2010!  Check our  website  throughout the year to see how many machines are still running after 50 or 60 years.  You can also view the history of Yoder on our history page on the website.

Rebuilds & Sustainable Metal Forming

Formtek can bring your tired or mothballed machine back to life.  Send in your original Formtek or competitor-brand equipment for:

  • Teardown, clean and inspection of all components.
  • Items that are found to be broken or excessively worn will be identified and replacement costs will be provided.
  • Reassemble and calibrate (e.g., parallel roll shafts, etc.) as necessary.
  • All Formtek rebuilds include a one-year new machine warranty provided that all recommended components are purchased.
  • Inquire with Formtek today about rebuilds for your YoderDahlstromTishkenB&K and Lockformer (Custom) roll formers and presses.


Rely on the Strength of Formtek

This recession has hit everyone in the metal forming industry; including our customers, competitors and vendors as well as us.  Additionally, there have been several casualties of idling, restructure and liquidations.  Among these casualties are companies with names similar to ours, such as FormTech, which have no relation to the Formtek Group.

With the financial backing of our parent company, Mestek, Inc., the Formtek Group has maintained a strong balance sheet to weather the storm of this recession.  You can be sure to count on us now and in the future for your metal forming needs, whether it is new equipment, parts or service, we are here for you.
