About Structural Machinery Solutions

Structural Machinery Solutions, Inc. was created when Dave McCorry and Mike Drzewiecki teamed up in a 50:50 partnership to purchase Kaltenbach, Inc. from the erstwhile German parent group. The extended company portfolio now includes machinery from several other manufacturers - not just Kaltenbach. 


Dave and Mike have witnessed every major - and minor - turn in the metal sawing and steel fabricating machinery industries over the last three decades. They are aware of new developments and fully understand the pros and cons of the broad range of machinery types and software options. 


At SMS we understand that you probably haven't got the time to keep fully abreast of the latest developments; but we do! We make it our business to know what technologies are available, determine which features and options can benefit you, and put a package together to maximize your ROI.

 Dave McCorry, President

"Mac" - a native of Scotland, but now a "born-again Hoosier" and US Citizen - joined Kaltenbach's UK operation in 1986 after spending six 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 30+ years of hands-on experience in metal sawing and structural steel fabrication machinery. Mac can be contacted at ext. 16 or mac@smscolumbus.com.

Mike Drzewiecki, Vice President
Mike grew up in Chicago, Illinois but has lived for many years in Michigan. His 30+ years in the specification, supply and support of machine tools includes a heavy bias toward structural steel manufacturing machinery. The knowledge and expertise Mike has built up over years of interconnecting with structural steel fabricators all over the US is second to none and he is happy to share it. Leverage Mike's knowledge to your benefit. Contact him at ext. 17 or miked@smscolumbus.com.
