Over One-Half Century of Service to the Metal Extrusion Industry
Evolution & Growth
With the growth of the extrusion industry, replacement parts became more and more important and engineers were added to the staff. Soon, handling systems were added to complement the press components – from quench units at the press platen to the automatic take away belts at the finish saw. The next large step for R.L. Best was the acquisition, in 1988, of the extrusion press division of the Farrel Corporation. Included in this purchase were a large inventory of spare parts, complete engineering files, technology, all detail drawings and bills of material of all the extrusion presses manufactured by the Farrel Corporation and the Watson Stillman Company.
