About Structural Machinery Solutions

About Kaltenbach

Structural Machinery Solutions, Inc. was created out of Kaltenbach, Inc. when Dave McCorry and Mike Drzewiecki teamed up in a 50:50 partnership to purchase Kaltenbach, Inc. from the erstwhile German parent group. (As a side-note to existing Kaltenbach customers: it's the same place, the same people, same telephone number and the same Kaltenbach sawing products – even the same Fed Tax ID # – just a different name!)  

So, why the new name? The extended company portfolio now includes machinery from several other manufacturers – not just Kaltenbach – so it was deemed appropriate to rename the company accordingly. 'Structural Machinery Solutions" more accurately reflects the products and services now offered.

Dave McCorry


"Mac" - a native of Scotland, but now a "born-again Hoosier" and US Citizen – joined Kaltenbach's UK operation in 1986, after spending 6 years in Germany working for the steel giant Krupp. He originally moved to Columbus, Indiana with his family in 1998, to become President of Kaltenbach, Inc. Mac literally "wrote the book" on sawing (McGraw-hill's 'Manufacturing Engineering Handbook' – chapter 32: Metal Sawing) and has a quarter century of hands-on experience in metal sawing and structural steel fabrication machinery. Mac can be contacted at ext. 16, or
