For low-volume orders, prototypes, and situations when your current supplier or mill is quoting long lead times that won’t fit your schedule, turn to Great Lakes Forge. We have the capacity and experience to produce custom forgings with the quickest lead times in the industry. Our open-die forgings will meet the requirements of many power generation industry applications.

In addition to custom open-die forgings, Great Lakes Forge also offers rough machining, heat-treating, testing and other value-added services.
