Illinois' Trusted Metal Works Facilty For Over Four Decades

Custom Metal Manufacturing Services

SMF, Inc. opened as a metal manufacturing facility

in Illinois in 1972

Since then, we’ve grown both in size and capability. Today, we operate a 160,000 square foot fabrication and machining facility in Minonk and are one of only a few metal fabricators in the country with the capacity to weld and machine parts up to 30,000 pounds.

Our reputation in Illinois speaks for itself—our clients count on us to produce high quality products in a timely manner. Above all, our clients can always expect us to go the extra mile, treat them with the utmost respect, and communicate fully every step of the way.
