Temple Machine Shop was purchased in 1980 and was located on South Fourth Street. The plant consisted of a 2,900-square-foot building with a dirt floor, a few lathes, milling machines, and presses. Local farmers, contractors, and small factories were their first customers.

By 1986, the plant doubled its manufacturing space as a result of the almost 550% growth in sales. The business continued to expand and in 1993 was relocated to the present 50,000-square-foot facility on North 14th Street.

Earnings have been reinvested in state-of-the-art machinery and equipment to improve manufacturing capacity. Also, to improve pay, benefit programs, and working conditions to attract and retain skilled and dedicated people.
