Equipment Needed


Alloy Hardfacing and Engineering has been in business since 1952, operating at its current Jordan, Minnesota location since 1996.

Alloy is a Custom Fabrication Company that incorporates machining, grinding, fabrication and welding processes to manufacture process equipment for food and food related industries. We are proud of our history as both a Minnesota Custom Fabrication and Minnesota Custom Welding Supplier.

While it is a smaller portion of our business, Alloy is equally proud of our history as a Job Shop, manufacturing a broad variety of products based on the designs and needs of other U.S. suppliers.

Alloy forms carbon and stainless steel in to various shapes and assemblies ranging from small parts weighing a few pounds to complete assemblies weighing in excess of 150 ton.

Alloy works with material thickness from light gauge thickness 16 - 18 gauge all the way up to and including 3 inches.

In addition to manufacturing, during our nearly seventy year history, Alloy has also functioned as an authorized rebuilding station, system integrator, and manufacturer's representative for companies such as Allbright Nell Company (ANCO), Rietz, Anderson International and others.

Alloy products are marketed globally by applications and sales staff maintained at its world headquarters in Jordan, Minnesota, U.S.A.

In 2017 and 2018, Alloy took a look back to celebrate its 65-year history. This included a search through the company archives, a 65th Anniversary Company Party, and several chances to reflect on how it is we have arrived at this point. Though names and faces have changed over the years - what has remained the same is a commitment to providing high quality equipment with reasonable investments and full support. Here's to 65 more!

Alloy is located approximately 40 minutes south of the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport on Highway 169 (Johnson Memorial Drive), a major artery feeding Minneapolis. Alloy occupies a building with nearly 55,000 square feet on a 28-acre commercial site.
