Sometimes repairing a component is not an option and a replacement part is not always available.
Manufacturing a one off component for a lot of today's engineering shops is not cost effective and therefore they would not entertain that type of work, however with our combination of traditional and modern day engineering capabilities a one off component or large quantities is within our capability.
Reclaiming worn or damaged components is a specialty of Thurston Engineering and also a sensible and economic way of recycling existing components without depleting the worlds resources. With over 60 years experience and a very versatile machine shop adapting to the ever increasing customer demands is taken in our stride.
