What's New

At BPC we always strive to serve you better with new services and new facilities.

April 12, 2021 - SAC Ventures (Flat Rock Metal, Bar Processing and Steel Dimensions) is Now an Employee Owned Company

We are proud to announce that Flat Rock Metal, Bar Processing and Steel Dimensions have become a 100% employee-owned company with the implementation of our new ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).

The ESOP is part of our long-term business succession planning strategy. Becoming an ESOP company ensures stability for you (and all our customers), employees, vendors, and the local communities where we operate. The sale to the employees will result in no change in management, our business operations and, most importantly, our relationship with you.

Employee ownership complements our core values and focus on quality customer service. In fact, now that they are owners, Flat Rock Metal, Bar Processing and Steel Dimensions employees will share in the financial and operational success of our company in ways that few employees do. That means they will have an even stronger commitment to serving you. Because, as our customers succeed, so do all of Flat Rock Metal, Bar Processing and Steel Dimension’s new employee owners.

We are excited about this important development in our business. ESOP companies have higher growth rates and better employee retention than other forms of ownership. Becoming an employee-owned company ensures that Flat Rock Metal, Bar Processing and Steel Dimensions will remain an independent, locally operated company. The values that have allowed us to prosper for 50 years will continue unchanged.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 734-777-1379

Thanks, as always, for your business. We appreciate the ability to work together and are excited to continue serving you as an employee-owned company.

Newton Falls (Cleveland), Ohio & Warren (Detroit), Michigan
Precision Shaft Lines

In 2003, we installed in our Cleveland (Newton Falls) area plant, two processing lines capable of cutting a long bar product into a precision shaft blank. These cells process material from 0.75" to 3" in diameter into shafts 8" to 60" in length. The lines can provide a ground surface to tolerances of +/- 0.004" with a double end chamfer and a length tolerance of +/- >0.031".

During 2007, we installed 2 similar cells in our Warren (Detroit), Michigan plant with similar capabilities for shafts that do not require a ground surface. This line will generally hold +/- 0.001" diametrical tolerance.

Bar Processing Corporation, with corporate headquarters in Flat Rock, Michigan remains committed to meeting the needs of our customers.
