Service.

Precision, excellence, quality, pride, and history are the elements that define our commitment to our customers. Our customers know every member of our team is dedicated to delivering the industry's highest standard. On time, on budget, and on spec.

3D material flow simulation, finite element analysis, and cutting edge engineering tools means expertise in material handling, improved process capability and scrap reduction.  With ignition statistical data, closed die forming and heat treating capabilities, MFC delivers a reduced prototype, PPAP development time and precise parts, right and on time.

You don’t thrive for more than 60 years unless you’ve got a relentless commitment to making a quality product at a competitive price. Doing it right the first time is not just a company philosophy, it’s a duty realized from the engineers to the craftsman, to the maintenance team, to the front office and the CEO.

MFC QUALITY POLICY

“MFC is committed to achieving customer requirements by providing quality products that are delivered on time through the use of efficient processes and the continual improvement of our quality management system.”- September 25, 2017
