“I was so impressed after a recent trip to the Clintonville facility. Most forgers rely on third parties for heat treating and lab work. Walker Forge helps us meet the tight specifications we must adhere to, and a big part of that is due to their lab. They’re a force to be reckoned with in the forging industry.”
