Clinkenbeard Expands Operations

On Dec. 3 Clinkenbeard relocated to a 40,000-square-foot facility in South Beloit, Ill. The new facility is twice as big as the previous facility and includes space for engineering, machining, a mechanical mockup build shop, and a foundry pattern shop.

In addition, several upgrades to the business have recently been made. For example, a DMG Mori 5-axis milling center and a DMG Mori turning center have recently been installed on the shop floor.

Clinkenbeard says it prides itself on the rapid production of complex castings and machined parts using a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The company’s principal markets include U.S. defense and government, aerospace, aviation, automotive, heavy truck and engine, power generation, and industrial.

The company says one of their key metrics of success is adherence to meeting and exceeding the time-to-market requirements of its customers.
