Northeast Missouri Machine and Pattern has been serving Palmyra, Missouri and the surrounding areas for 45 years. In January 1974, Randall and Norma Smyser purchased the Roy Davis Machine Shop located at 715 S. Spring St. in Palmyra. Randy was working as a foreman in the Pattern Shop at Gardner Denver in Quincy, Illinois and after 17 years, he felt it was time to start his own business. Norma started working full time in the business office in 1976. Kyle and Teresa Smyser, a son and daughter-in-law are still with them today, Kyle joining them in 1987 and Teresa in 2004.
Northeast Missouri Machine and Pattern has grown from a "Fix Anything" Job Shop to a Machine Shop specializing in Rubber Compression and Injection Molds. In 1988, Randy spearheaded his first major mold, weighing about 15,000 lbs., for Pearl Harbor Dry Dock #1. Shortly thereafter, the company undertook another major project, a compression mold for a seal for the Garrison Dam on the Missouri River in North Dakota.
The establishment has flourished, producing several dry dock molds including Boston Harbor, Norfolk Virginia and Pearl Harbor. Northeast Missouri Machine and Pattern has undergone four expansions of the original one room Job Shop to accommodate work load and equipment. However, management continues to maintain the Job Shop reputation with local farmers and businesses within a 100 mile radius, always willing to find time to stop what they're doing and fix what needs fixing.
Services include welding, machine work, pattern making, metal fabrication, mold making, and full CNC service. Northeast Missouri Machine and Pattern specializes in making injection and compression molding for the Rubber Industry. From as simple and small as a bumper on a bumper car to the Rubber Latch on the Hood of a Kenworth Truck or as complex as a Blower Hose on a Mack Truck to as large and intricate as a Dry Dock seal for Pearl Harbor or the complete Gate Seal for the Garrison Darn. Work can range from a week's worth to several months with machines running 24/7.
Northeast Missouri Machine and Pattern's goal is to provide exceptional work for anyone who has an idea. Satisfied customers include Buckhorn, Seals Unlimited, BASF, Central Stone, Watlow, Cosmoflex, Cerro Flow, area farmers and private contractors as well. With quality services and a name you can trust, you're sure to get what you're looking for.
