Markey Machinery seeking area partner

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA — Markey Machinery Company, Inc (USA) is actively seeking a partner in the South Pacific area. This partner will manufacture and help support machines designed and carrying the Markey brand. An opportunity exists for the right company to produce winches, windlasses, and capstans of the highest quality standards while serving the growing needs of the Australian-region market and demands exceeding our factory production capacity.
Markey’s partners have established facilities, a stable workforce, and production processes oriented toward low rate (prototype) manufacturing. Their facilities include support staff with modern computer/communication resources, heavy lift handling equipment, clean assembly areas, and proximity to ocean shipping terminals. Our partners are adept at sourcing, fabricating, cutting, welding, machining, and finishing metal materials to high tolerances. They draw project teams from a trained cadre of technicians, craftspersons, and assemblers to produce marine quality end-products. The mission and corporate culture is service-oriented as Markey Machinery works side-by-side ensuring each product meets our own high standards as well as our customer’s specifications.
