Scot Forge has embarked on its eighteenth major plant expansion at the Spring Grove, IL headquarters.
On an annual basis Scot Forge invests a significant amount of capital back into the business to improve and expand operations. “Our investment philosophy is simple… listen to our customers’ needs and never stop innovating,” commented one employee-owner. In order to stay at the forefront of the forging industry, the company also makes sure to invest in new technology independent of current market fluctuations.

The new 80,000 sq. ft. expansion on the South side of the existing campus will be served by a 150 ton crane and will be the new location for large heat treat and machining operations. The heat treat addition will include two new tip-up furnaces with the ability to handle parts up to 90” x 90” x 392”, two added car bottom furnaces equipped for forgings up to 840” in length, and dual quench tanks for both water and polymer with capacity for product up to 79’ long and vertical quenching up to 160” in length. The machining addition will be comprised of a large 5-axis planer mill (machine window - 138” x 80” x 524”) with plans for additional machine tools.
Scot Forge is on schedule to have all additions operational by the 4th quarter of 2014.
