IMW History

Our story

Industrial Maintenance Welding & Machining Co., Inc. started serving the Steel Mill industry in 1972 in Kingsbury, IN.  Since that time, IMW has grown into (4) locations with over 350,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space under roof.  The other locations are in Gary, IN and two other facilities in Chicago.  

The Chicago plant was established four years later (1978) with one small lathe and a welding machine. This facility is now an 85,000 square foot facility with large manual machine capabilities and lifting capacity up to 160,000 pounds. It grew from there until, in 1989, IMW purchased the 125,000 square foot facility at 4806 South Halsted Street in Chicago. Now that facility houses a large CNC Shop with numerous small and medium sized CNC horizontal boring mills, three CNC G&L floor type horizontal boring mills (two 6” Spindle & one 7” Spindle machines), one large CNC Ingesoll Planer Mill, one MAG VTC 2500 (built in 2005),  one large (twin carriage) CNC Heavy Duty Lathe (Installed new in 2010), three CNC lathes, two manual vertical boring mills (OM & Toshiba Shibura), one Poreba manual engine lathe, one large H.
