" Jim, Thank you! I appreciate it, and everything you all at Mecal do for Me and AG. i deal with a lot of companies but no one has shown me they are better at customer service or let alone build a quality applicator than Mecal. Keep up the awesome work my friends and thank you again. "

"The team at Mecal (Starn) was a big help in getting us up and running with our older TT Crimper. They've proved that Crimpin is easy with the right tools and support. I'll gladly do business again with this group, thanks again!"

"I have been purchasing Mecal presses and applicators for the past 10 years. In all that time, we haven't had a single press or applicator that didn't come straight out of the box and go right into production. Their turn around time from order to delivery is second to none. We had issues with another companies applicators and dies. Mecal's engineering staff solved our problems, even though the applicators weren't theirs! They have provided unparalleled support and customer service to out company. They even designed custom tooling for another companies applicators!"

"The Team at Mecal has really helped us and our customers get to market sooner and with much more flexibility than would have been possible purchasing from others. Out of 20+ Applicators purchased in a short amount of time we only had one minor problem and they took GREAT care in solving it right away. Truly, they stand by their tooling and machining. "

"The Mecal applicator is good, one of the best in the market. What sets this product apart from anything else out there is the amazing support, people, know how, and tangible value of Starn. In our experience, we must meet the demands of a fast paced, short turn around, high quality, competitive market. That is why we trust Starn to provide us the best solutions. The next time you plan on buying an applicator, do your company and yourself a favor and buy a Starn branded Mecal applicator, you won’t regret it."

"These folks are the real deal! They are expert toolmakers with long experience in this niche market. Quality of product and service after the sale have been absolutely outstanding. Without their steadfast support, I don’t see how our team could have successfully implanted this non-trivial equipment into the production environment. Also, the value per dollar offered by Mecal by Starn is truly unbeatable. This operation runs lean, and the customer benefits handsomely. I am absolutely sold on them!"

If I have an issue my sales rep is always there to answer any questions I may have.with Mecal you get nothing but the best tools and service there is.Thank you everyone at Mecal!"

"The guys at Mecal have saved my company a ton of money with their perishable tooling service. We send in perishable tooling, they reverse engineer the tool and produce copies at greatly reduced cost. The staff are very knowledgeable, communicate well, and seem to genuinely love their job and serving customers. Mecal applicators are widely known as the top of the line in the industry. We use a Mecal end feed applicator on a stainless steel terminal that reads 2500+lbs of peak force on our force monitors. We have over 1 million crimps on this extremely tough terminal and the applicator is problem free. The life of their perishable tooling life is the best I've seen, with crimp punches lasting 2-3 times as long as other manufacturers. "
