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.
