Steward Machine is a multiple generation family-owned business engaged in full service custom manufacturing. These functions include design, engineering, manufacturing and testing of highly specialized equipment and components for use in a wide range of industries.
Founded in 1900, Steward began as a manufacturer of supplies for the coal and iron ore mining industry in central Alabama. Not long after, our area of work expanded into the iron rolling industries followed by service to the steel industry.
In order to offset the cyclical market prevalent in the mining and steel industries, other markets were cultivated. Steward now has a great reputation in a variety of fields. We are the largest manufacturer of movable bridge machinery in the world as well as a leading supplier in the lock and dam, heavy industrial equipment and machinery, defense, aerospace, sewage, and waste industries. In 1985 we acquired the Earle Gear company to accompany our existing gear manufacturing, thus making available patented Cushionloks®, Pillow Blocks, Lock Bars, and Reducers to our customers.
With multiple locations making available a variety of capabilities in fabrication, machining, painting, inspection and shipping. Steward Machine is a company with the experience and ability to meet the needs of the most demanding owners in the world. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about how we can serve you.
