Founded in 1972 Distefano Technology & Manufacturing has evolved into one of the leading suppliers of precision tooling, machined steel components, and custom fabricated metal parts in the Midwest. Distefano fabricates more than 1,000 different metal components for various industries including commercial turf care, agricultural, construction, transportation, medical, and telecommunications. Although Distefano offers extensive experience with these industries and a rock solid reputation in the region we've served for over 35 years, we continue to find new opportunities to expand.
In January 2008, following a long-term relationship of over 20 years, Behlen Mfg. Co. acquired Distefano, adding more capacity and more capability to both companies. Behlen, which was founded in 1936, is a global manufacturer exporting to more than 70 countries. Visit www.behlenmfg.com for more information.
We have combined the knowledge, capability, talent, and craftsmanship of the Distefano team with the resources, diversity, and purchasing power of the Behlen organization. This provides our customers with many key advantages.
Distefano utilizes the latest laser cutting, tool & die, production welding, metal stamping, CNC punching, wire EDM, and machine equipment. We are experienced in robotic welding and kitting parts, and we have our own powder coating and galvanizing equipment at our manufacturing facility. We continue to find new opportunities to expand, including Renewable Energy - like wind and solar. We are a single source provider of quality machined and fabricated products which means a lower per unit cost and shorter lead times.
At Distefano, we offer a tremendous amount of capacity for our customers. Our manufacturing facilities total over 930,000ft² throughout three production locations where our company's own transportation division dispatches to over 100 owner/operators. This provides our customers the added assurance of knowing their production schedules will be met with ease.
