      Safe and modern facilities. 

      Company Overview

      ELLWOOD City Forge Group's facilities are designed to meet our customers' requirements for high-quality products, reliable due-date performance and world-class service.  Operating from two forging manufacturing locations, our facilities include:

      • Three modern oil-hydraulic presses with capacities up to 5000 tons
      • Heat treating furnaces calibrated to the latest revisions of MIL-H-6875 and API 6A
      • Water and polymer quenching facilities
      • A wide range of machine tools, including lathes, milling machines, peeler, and saws
      • Metallurgical laboratories capable of testing and certifying in accordance with just about any customer specification
      • Dependable market-focused sales teams

      Because both ECFG’s manufacturing divisions have the ability to forge, heat treat, and machine, this gives us flexibility and redundancy to handle almost any situation.
