More About Us
Founded on old-fashioned sweat and work ethic, grown through a shared vision, and fueled by world-class aspirations, Spectrum Machine is the gold medal champion when it comes to bronze.
Our family-owned business was born from the humblest of beginnings. We didn’t read the book, we wrote it and lived it. The Lamb family developed this business from the ground up, learning how to machine in our father’s garage shop. We’ve established a strong foundation that has catapulted us into our position as an industry leader.
As a custom machine shop, stocking distributor of bronze alloy parts, and producer of premium bar stock, we remain family-run. We have grown considerably since those early days, but we will never lose sight of those small business roots. That’s why you can trust us for all your needs, large and small – we understand every customer is unique.
Our continuous cast foundry, built in 2011 in Ravenna, Ohio, provides you with unmatched and unparalleled bar stock choices. It’s here that you’ll find the most state-of-the art equipment and technology for vertical and horizontal casting. Capable of producing lengths in excess of 144 inches, our bronze bar stock is the strongest, most durable and superior quality alloy produced in the world today.
Spectrum Machine’s state-of-the-art equipment, inventory and expert staff make us the preferred destination for all of your Continuous Cast, Machining and Bronze Bar Stock needs.
