Introduction

Saturn Machine is a privately held corporation that became involved in the design and fabrication of coke oven equipment during the mid-1960’s.  Saturn is the innovator in the production of coke oven door machines, charge cars, door extractors, jamb cleaners, door cleaners and other related coke oven equipment.

 Saturn’s positive attitude toward responding to customer requirement is surpassed only by its ability to provide state-of-the-art technologically sound coke oven equipment.

Assistance from Saturn’s experienced staff, and a variety of advanced equipment, combined with our 50 ft tall fabrication shop and four overhead bridge cranes, large structural work is easily handled to guarantee customer satisfaction.

 Saturn facilities are located on 6 acres at the Sturgis Airport in Sturgis, Kentucky.  Saturn is

ideally situated to serve clients being adjacent to three, 5,000-foot concrete runways.  Clients traveling via private/company aircraft will find Saturn’s client-reception area only 300 yards from the airport administration building.  Convenience is an important factor in our customer-satisfaction policy.

Saturn plans to build a stronger market position in the United States, due to its industry experience and mild competitive climate in North America.

Quality control personnel, design and skilled machinists are organized into one administrative team capable of producing a job from concept to the finished product.  All operations are carefully monitored—in process and upon completion.  Once the customer has fully inspected the product, our trucks then deliver to their door.  Total control and customer approval guarantee their satisfaction.

 Mission

 Saturn Machine aims to offer skill, experience and eagerness to work with its customers to produce high quality, environmentally safe equipment that will serve the customer well into the future, at a competitive price.

 Strategy and Implementation
In order to reassure our customers of our ability to handle additional work loads, Saturn must be prepared to move forward when bids are awarded and purchase orders are received. 

In August 2008 Saturn erected a 2,100 sq. ft. material warehouse to accommodate the overflow of material for the five door machines Saturn was awarded this year.  A 5,000 sq. ft. building is being erected currently with a 10 ton overhead crane for the production of coke oven doors.  This will open our current high bay for the building of large machines.  Saturn has already negotiated with a river port company to make it possible to ship equipment by barge.  This will allow large machines to be shipped fully assembled.

Saturn Machine is the only manufacturer of coke oven equipment in the United States.  Our facility is readily accessible for our customers to make inspections of equipment during the manufacturing process and prior to shipping.
