BUILDING THE FOUNDATION FOR 40 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE

40th

Forty years ago, our Dad Steve and Uncle Mike followed their dreams and started Bales Mold Service in a small residential garage. By providing high quality work at a fair price, they were able to expand their diamond polishing service into an industrial space and widen their offerings with the addition of chrome, nickel and composite coatings.

They didn’t set out to be the biggest or the fanciest. They simply wanted to solve their customer’s problems and take care of their dedicated employees. Steve and Mike set the bar with a strong work ethic, a reputation of integrity and passion for the industry.

The same values were instilled in us. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are honored and humbled to continue our family’s legacy. We will continue to uphold your expectations, stand tall on our integrity and strive to be better tomorrow than we are today.

To all our employees, customers, suppliers and friends –  We thank you for your continued commitment to Bales. We hope to share the celebration of this milestone with you throughout the year.

Cheers to another 40 years!

You could say we’re control freaks. At Bales, we can control the thickness of all our coatings. Take chrome, for example. No one can touch our jaw-dropping ability to fabricate precision anodes. We deliver maximum coverage, no matter how intricate the application.

We Stand By Our Work

We hear it all the time: our customers know we stand by our work. It’s called integrity, and our company was built on it. Whatever it takes to get the job done — and done right. Capability to run 24/7. Commitment to continuous improvement. Customer-centric. That’s just how we roll.

Bales is serious about sustainability. In fact, we were the first company in our community to be honored for our ongoing “green” efforts. From solar lights and environmentally friendly passivation to in-house training and exceeding EPA requirements, we’re always working to decrease our impact on the environment.
