Solmet Technologies was founded in 1985 when the company’s founders saw the need for a dedicated metallurgical sampling company. From their vision, Solmet was born.

Metallurgical testing was the engine that started Solmet. And it’s still a big part of our service line-up today. However, the bigger share of the business now is Open Die Forging, especially for the oil and gas industry that now surrounds our plant. Solmet sits in the heart of the Utica Shale that covers much of northeast Ohio, western Pennsylvania, plus parts of New York and West Virginia. We forge many of the parts used by oil and gas drillers, including the mandrels that are forged to the exacting specifications our customers require. Solmet’s parts are well-known for their toughness. A part that bores deep into the ocean, or one buried miles underground churning through rock, dirt and clay better be tough, durable and reliable.

Our Open Die Forging process also serves other industries, including the power generation and rail industries. Mechanical shafts, gear reducers and other high-strength, high-torque, shaft applications are also Solmet specialties. Check out one of our experienced Solmet forging teams in action in this video . You’ll see what we mean when we say tough parts come from a tough company. Tough employees, too.

We believe in using only the best steel, and that’s American steel. We never use cheap imports or low grade steel in our parts. As a proud American company, we’re also driven by our Midwestern values of diligence, loyalty and integrity.

Nearly thirty years later, we employ 60 metalworking professionals with a variety of skills.Our services range from the metallurgical testing that started the company to Open Die Forging, Machining, Blacksmithing, Metal Cutting and more.

Our blacksmiths specialize in custom tongs and hand-forged tools for material handling. We can also repair and repoint your tools. We use the tools ourselves, so we know what it means to have a strong, quality tool at your side. Our machined parts are as durable as they are exact.
