About Us

Who we are, the history of Met-L-Flo

At Met-L-Flo, Inc. we have been asked on more than one occasion about our unique name. “Wait, don’t you do plastics?” Yes, we work in plastic and metal. What you may not know is Met-L-Flo Engineering was founded in 1969 as a consulting firm for the metal forging industry. Carl Dekker, our current President, introduced Additive Manufacturing in 1991 and the services we offered exploded. The consulting side of the business branched off and Met-L-Flo, the service bureau, was born.

Over the years our service offerings have continued to grow. Today we create parts in a wide variety of processes such as Additive (3D Printing) in SLA, SLS, FDM, Direct Metal and Polyjet. We also cast in urethanes, elastomers, silicones, and metals. Met-L-Flo offers Rotational Molding/Casting, Fiber Reinforced Plastics, Composites, and Vacuum/Thermo Forming parts as well. Many of our processes perfectly bridge the gap between custom prototypes and production. We offer Low Volume Injection Molding and Bridge Tooling in a wide variety of materials—putting end use product in your hands well before production parts are available.

Our constant quest to exceed client’s expectation motivates our Research and Development department to answer the questions yet to be asked

In addition to our many ways of manufacturing products, we are expert finishers at Met-L-Flo. We can accommodate the entire spectrum of finish levels; from a simple fit and function analysis part, to a marketing ready piece. Secondary Machining is also available when required

Our constant quest to exceed client’s expectation motivates our Research and Development department to answer the questions yet to be asked. Met-L-Flo looks forward to partnering with you to conquer your challenges with our solutions.
