Recent Shipments

B&K Installs Structual Supermill®


B&K recently delivered a 3TSR Supermill® System to Brazil as well as Canada.  The 3TSR can produce flange heights up to 3" for both track and stud components.  The flange heights are independently adjustable, without tooling change, from 1" track through 3" stud and track.  Web widths are adjustable from 2½" through 14".  The system's product range spans light gauge (0.015") through structural (0.105").  With 300 FPM production rates, thanks to patented rotary punch, shear, as well as the quick changeover of the Supermill gauge technology, the 3TSR is the most versatile, high-production framing system available.  For more information, contact, (216) 292-4460 or visit

 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.
