It’s not always new! Though we love building new parts from either blueprints or samples, we realize new parts are expensive. Today, we live in a more disposable world. Many parts are not made to last. Instead of repairing them, they are often replaced with the same insufficient component(s). Professional repairs are becoming a ‘lost art,’ in a sense. With some critical thinking, revisions, and repairs, Columbia Machine could drastically lengthen the lifespan of your part. Repair is not always a go to method. There are cases where replacing your part is cheaper than repairing it. However, parts from the manufacturer commonly have long lead times. A longer lead time results in longer downtime, resulting in lost revenue. The lost revenue commonly is greater than the cost of an emergency repair. Columbia Machine prides itself on getting your operation back online with a long term repair… done right.

We really do, ‘Keep Junk Alive.’ Many of our customers seek our services as a last resort. Their part is not only worn out, it is discontinued, or astronomically expensive. Columbia Machine will work with you. If it is practical to fix your part, we will execute a quality repair. If it is not… we will tell you. We will make your needed parts using a cost effective method. We enjoy seeing the quality parts of Americas past come through our doors. It’s an even greater feeling giving the part a professional repair, with pride in all aspects.

Though machining is our specialty, Columbia Machine additionally specializes in welding and fabrication. Columbia Machine is NOT your go to shop for intense fabrication (i.e. conveyors, catwalks, tanks, and funnels). If you do need intense fabrication, we will gladly recommend a reputable welding shop. Columbia Machine’s welding abilities commonly assist our machining operations. We have the ability to build up shafts, repair cracks, and even fill voids. Commonly, we use our machine shop equipment to finish our repairs. Machining the weld back to the original size is a common method (when applicable). We do have fabricating abilities: shearing, bending, torching, grinding, and welding are all commodities here at Columbia Machine.

Service really is the highest priority here at Columbia Machine. We want to ensure everyone is happy, from the maintenance team installing the part, to the operator running it, to the accounts payable department paying for it; we want each person of your team to benefit from ours. Quality is always first and foremost. We strive each and every day to provide a quality product and service. We really enjoying fixing things, and fixing them right. Uncompromising strength and quality are always in mind here at Columbia Machine.
