Sterling Machinery Exchange
Located in South El Monte, Calif., Sterling Machinery Exchange has called the same location home since it first opened the doors to its business in 1954. Today the company is a worldwide supplier of new and used metal fabrication and chip making machinery. The company’s main fabrication and large machinery showroom highlights Sterling Machinery’s new and used fabrication and large machinery such as press brakes, shears, punch presses, ironworkers and more.
The genesis of Sterling Machinery can be traced back to the company’s founder and president William Mattes, who is still active in the business every day at age 86. He started in the scrap business, and when a customer owed him some money, he traded for an air compressor. He then sold that air compressor to another customer at a profit, and the rest is history.
