Machine Build and Maintenance Group

P.J. Wallbank’s roots are in machine building and process development. After immigrating from England and using what was left of his savings to rent a room in a farmhouse, Phillip Wallbank, a springmaker by trade (and machine builder by choice), found a potential customer desperate for parts due to their striking supplier. In order to produce these parts, he immediately set out to create a machine, largely composed of components from a discarded old washing machine. This machine won him his first production contract. From there, the company was defined by creating innovative and specialized equipment, focused on simplicity, which set P.J. Wallbank apart from its competitors. This approach was further exemplified approximately 25 years later, when Mel Wallbank developed the very equipment that produce our spring packs today. Our organization’s DNA is made up of machine building and process development.
