Owner's Letter

To Our Customers:

        Yes, things have changed since Grandfather John Shickel arrived in Bridgewater over 75 years ago. In that day, equipment was controlled by a line shaft and a simple 5-horsepower motor.  Today, technology allows us to achieve even finer quality and faster service.  Metal working equipment is continually improving and we at Shickel Corporation are committed to putting these new techniques to work.

        In 1938, Shickel Machine Shop was known for Quality and Service. Our grandfather and father insisted on quality and value in workmanship and service and so do we.  When you trust Shickel Corporation to do a job, we know that attention to detail, deadlines, and price are important.

        This commitment, we believe, is the reason for our success and growth over the past 75 years.  It will continue to be the key to our success in the future.  Our philosophy to running our business is rooted in the following passage from the Bible: "And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men." (Colossians 3:23)

        We look forward to the privilege of serving you.
