Our Machine Equipment

It has been said that a workman is only as good as his tools. At Phoenix Specialty, we not only subscribe to that idea, but we work to ensure that the equipment that we use here reflects it as well. You will never find any cut-rate tools or equipment here, because that would diminish the quality of our materials. It is imperative to understand what equipment is available, as well as why it is important to have high-quality equipment in all metal work.

Keeping Ahead

It seems as though new processes are constantly being developed to do things faster, stronger, and better. It is important to keep ahead of the curve when it comes to machine equipment because with each technological improvement, the turnaround time of parts and materials gets faster. It is important to stay ahead of the competition, and the way to do that is with the most advanced machines and tools to make cycle times faster than the others. In the manufacturing processes, there is a huge pressure to manufacture at the lowest cost, sometimes sacrificing quality in the process. We will never sacrifice quality to lower manufacturing costs. We will always provide the best products and the highest-quality service.
