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.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Advice is always free!
“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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.

“SMS is a trusted partner of Endress+Hauser Automation
We can count on reliable equipment, skilled and prompt service and application support. Kaltenbach equipment is very well designed and robust, and the couple of times we needed parts and/or service SMS, Inc. had the parts in stock and got someone to us same day.”
“Kaltenbach are not the cheapest machines out there, but in my experience with multiple machines that we run hard, they work great, and they are extremely durable. SMS, Inc. also has the people and the know-how to support them: in fact, after several years of 24/7 operation we routinely send our Kaltenbachs back to SMS for a technical refurb’ … and they go right back into production and do it all over again.”
“As a special machine tool builder we rely on our suppliers to provide quality machinery and components. Not only do SMS, Inc. meet that requirement with Kaltenbach products, their after-sales support is excellent – and their thorough knowledge of the sawing process assists us in providing the best product for our customers.”
“SMS has been great to work with! In order to feel comfortable about purchasing a refurbished saw I visited Columbus, IN and they were very accommodating. Having a knowledgeable tech to install the saw was very helpful. Since installation there have been several questions and each time I’ve had great customer service. I don’t always reach someone right away when I need to order parts but get taken care of within a day. The refurbished saw has worked great during the past 1.25 years!”
