Scot Forge forges ahead in the manufacturing of open-die and rolled-ring forgings used for couplings, drive shafts, flanges, heat exchanger bodies, and ship shafts. The employee-owned company's customers are in the construction, defense, energy, general industrial machinery, power generation, and shipbuilding industries. A signature product is the Tartan Bar -- not a Scottish candy, but solid-center, rolled-surface round bars of metal. Scot Forge also offers design services and has a specialty alloy services team to help customers select specialty materials for open-die forgings and rolled rings. The manufacturer, which ships more than 250 million pounds of forgings a year, was founded all the way back in 1893.
