Our Story

Modern Metal Processing was established by Chet Wesolek in November, 1978. Our first contract was for processing aluminum bumpers for Lobdel-Emery Stamping Company. They were supplying them to General Motors for the Chevrolet Impala. They valued our services for over ten years. Our original equipment included one furnace, a solution pit furnace, and a large aging oven.

We continued to grow in size and services, adding space to our building, production capacity, and another solution pit furnace. Processing Oldsmobile parts for all of their models was a major portion of our operations in the 1980s and 1990s.

Many other customers were added during this time, processing a variety of parts, sizes, and different aluminum alloys. Weldments and forgings were also processed using different types of quenching media.
Other equipment and services added were a vacuum furnace, brazing, CAB, and heat treating. Capacity was expanded to process a welded car frame. A larger solution pit furnace and a second age oven were added along with quenching.

Our services focus on aluminum brazing that includes cold plates, building bar and fin designs with welded tanks, along with some nickel braze work. Research and development is also available.
Our customers have enjoyed their projects and relationships with us, and we are confident that you will benefit from working with Modern Metal Processing.
