MPI Celebrates 40 Years of Providing Metal Control Solutions
Learn more information about MPI's vision and history.
A little history about our first building…a 4,000 SF rented space to provide metal control solutions. The Machine Shop was similar to now with all speeds & feeds machines in one area. The machines were bought in 1980 auction during the recession when Jimmy Carter was president and inflation was crazy high – prime lending rate was 26.5%.The machines were manufactured during the 1940’s and were marked as war time equipment as part of the “Arsenal of Democracy” the USA had assembled to fight World War II. MPI still has one of the lathes on our floor to polish magnetic tubes.
