Why You’ll Never Go Wrong with a Classic

Corvettes, Volkswagen Beetles, Thunderbirds, the Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, The Who and rooting for the hometown team. What do all of these things have in common? First of all that they can all be great fun and secondly they are all considered to be classics. Each of these items has withstood the test of time and still is something that continues to perform well and provides enough value to be held onto and recommended to others. If those things don’t fall under your list of personal classics, then there’s a good chance that you have preferences and reasons that make up a list that’s uniquely specific to you and your lifestyle.

Even in the manufacturing industry, companies and the people who run those companies tend to rely on the machines and applications that are built from quality materials and that can be easily repaired with accessible replacement parts. In an age where disposable, single-use items are increasingly prevalent there is a growing backlash of dedicated companies who are producing products that rely on personal craftsmanship, quality and innovation. Walsh has been making that their initiative for the last fifty years.

Custom Crafted for Life

For more than five decades, the employees at Walsh Manufacturing have understood the importance of offering well-built custom machines, knowing that equipment that is built to last only a couple of seasons is of little use to the customer and reflects badly on the work done by the manufacturer. While there is an attractive sheen to new machinery and its accompanying bells and whistles, often older equipment can be rebuilt more economically, especially when compared with the cost of new.

  • Dip
  • Monorail

This equipment also has the added benefit of creating less downtime for the customer and an opportunity for increased production. It also benefits them through customization. All machinery rebuilds occur with the specific needs and requirements of the company with consideration to where it will be used. This includes our unique problem solving considerations for design and fabrication, including the use of heavy-gauge steel to produce all equipment with a longer lifecycle even in harsh environments. As always, no part is ever left to the discretion of an outside vendor.
