Metallurgical High Vacuum Corp, a remanufacturer of vacuum process equipment, was founded in Holland, Michigan, in 1981 by Geoff Humberstone as a consulting business, selling engineering expertise to the high-vacuum industry. The business was expanded in 1985 to provide in-depth service, design, and engineering on a wide range of high-vacuum equipment, including re-building of vacuum, booster, and diffusion pumps and blowers. To accommodate this growth, the company was relocated to a new 5000-ft 2 plant in Douglas, Michigan. With a fast growing reputation for high quality work and creative problem solving, the company soon outgrew this facility, and now occupies a fully climate-controlled 16, 000-ft 2 plant, built in 1996, on a 17-acre site near Fennville, Michigan. This new plant features an 80 x 200-ft open bay with a 30-ft ceiling height and 10-ton overhead crane with access to the entire building. A 30 x 60-ft building was added to the campus in 1998 to warehouse cores and fixtures. As this growth continued, a new, modern, 2, 400-ft 2 business office and engineering center was completed in 2006, equipped with the latest 3-D CAD system. The professional staff, which includes metallurgists, engineers, and factory trained machinists and technicians, is able to remanufacture most brands and models of vacuum equipment, including reverse engineering and manufacturing of many hard-to-get components to keep your equipment in service longer and help keep your costs under control. Other products and services include vacuum piping and manifolds, flexible connectors, vacuum valves, custom oil filtration systems, helium leak testing, and field repair. Rental pumps and blowers are also available.
