Found by Jack McGregor in 1972, Pentaflex excels in stamping and deep drawing of medium to heavy gage metal components. After working in the stamping industry as an apprentice, and then moving his way up to Sales and Service Engineer, Jack began to notice a need in the market for stamping materials specializing in heavy gage steel. He decided to put his years of experience and expertise to use and started his own company. The name Pentaflex is unique to us and reflects how we came to fruition. “Penta” stands for our five investors and “Flex” specifies how each investor brought a degree of flexibility to the company from each of their diverse professional backgrounds.
East Columbia Street in Springfield, Ohio was the site of our first location. After many expansions we now reside in a new facility in Springfield, located in the heart of the domestic steel industry. All necessary outside service industries are situated close to the plant including, heat treating, painting, plating, and other related support companies. This location allows us to be regularly supplied with material from markets in Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, and Kentucky.
Pentaflex is currently a contract manufacturer of metal stampings, weldments, and assemblies primarily in light to heavy gage steel. We mainly service the heavy truck and trailer industry as a Tier 2 supplier, providing a wide range of stamped metal parts, with materials including carbon steels, stainless steel, brass, and aluminum.
