Mack Hils Metal Fabrication (MHMF) has a 70,000 square foot facility in Moberly, Missouri and is an industry-recognized leader in supplying quality parts and products to the antique pickup truck market as well as several other original equipment manufacturing companies (“OUR HISTORY”).
The company launched in 1973 as an antique truck bed manufacturer called Mack Products. The business has changed ownership over the years and is now privately owned by Roger Payne since 2012. As the company has grown, so has its customer base and their needs. The antique truck bed business accounts for about 4% of their business while other manufacturing accounts for the other 96%.
So, what is the other 96%? The load of the fabricating work comes from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). The OEM is the original producer of a vehicle's components, and so OEM car parts are identical to the parts used in producing a vehicle (Investopedia Team, 2021). OEMs provides Mack Hils with blueprints of the parts that they are needing to be fabricated.
The bulk of the fabricated parts is shipped across the US and internationally to Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia to OEMs such as Heavy trucking Tier 1 manufacturers, Wave Soldering Manufacturers, Commercial laboratory ovens, Electrical enclosures, and Industrial equipment.
Mack Hils Metal Fabrication has a common ownership agreement with Total Powder Coat & Finish as well as Big Rocks Engineering, both located in Moberly. According to Stan and Josh, business is booming, but they are in need of more employees.
Consider a career at Mack Hils Metal Fabrication. In a company that's stable and growing, you'll be able to use your skills and create a long-term career.
