Extensive archive of original machine drawings dating back to
1896 – Ensures “the numbers match”
As OEM, Bourn & Koch has all of the original documentation for every brand they own and knows exactly how the machines were built and what parts are needed to keep them running reliably. Bourn & Koch does not reverse engineer their parts; because, as OEM, they don’t have to. When a repair part isn’t in stock, a new part can be made from the original detail prints so it will fit without any modification.
Made in the USA
With a large staff in Rockford of factory-trained service technicians, engineers, precision machine tool assemblers and inspection technicians, Bourn & Koch can remanufacture, retrofit, redesign, rebuild, recondition, and repair worn out machines to keep them running for decades to come. The company has completed over 2,500 of these projects since 1975 often incorporating new technology into older machines, making improvements in accuracy and reliabilities superior to the original OEM tolerances.
