When companies require strong and reliable metal parts, forged products are often the answer. The forging process, in fact, is known for creating strong parts — often stronger than those produced by any other metalworking process. Because of this high strength, forged parts are often used in applications where reliability and human safety are critical (i.e., in the automotive and aerospace industries, and in industrial equipment).
Forging is one of the oldest known metalworking processes. It involves shaping metal (pressing, pounding or squeezing) using compressive forces like a press or powered hammer, for example. Though an old process, it requires a great amount of expertise.
According to numbers from the Forging Industry Association, about 250 forging companies in about 300 plants across the U.S., Canada and Mexico are involved in custom forging, the largest sector in the forging industry. Ken Forging is one of these specialized companies, with its expertise dating back to its launch in 1970.
As a leading manufacturer of forged industrial hardware and custom forgings in the United States, Ken Forging has earned a reputation for manufacturing products of a superior quality at competitive prices.
Its lineup includes eye bolts, pad eyes, nut eye bolts, rod ends, eye nuts, turnbuckle bodies, assemblies and fittings, as well as c-clamps, d-rings and swivel hoist rings. All products are produced out of Ken Forging’s 320,000-square-foot facility in Jefferson, Ohio.
Ken Forging knows that its products play critical roles in many applications, so it makes sure its service is just as reliable as the parts it produces.
“We are dedicated to total customer service and satisfaction, beginning at the top,” says Richard A. Kovach, the company’s founder. “Employees know and understand the importance of providing customers with superior quality products at a competitive price with substantial inventory to provide the fast turn-around required. Because we can do everything in our house, we can meet those requirements.”
The company is also proud to offer same- or next-day shipping on all in-stock items, ensuring these critical parts make it to customers in a timely manner.
