Our machine bay houses six TOS WHN boring mills, three Mazak machines for live tooling and milling, and numerous manual boring mills and lathes to ensure there is always the necessary equipment to meet customer deadlines. We also implement a two or three-shift operation schedule to work around-the-clock in order to deliver on time, every time.

Our machine shop is 35,000 sq. ft. with a 40-ton lifting capacity. We are capable of machining to high tolerances to create a precision finished piece. Thurston Machine Co Ltd also takes pride in our state-of-the-art dedicated room for our machine tools. Our tool room creates efficiencies in our process, saving our customers on time and costs, by creating tooling carts for each machine based on current production requirements and with a dedicated calibration station to ensure accuracy in testing the equipment.
