Our History

Green’s Metal Cut-Off was founded in 1950 as Metal Cut-Off, Inc, with originally designed equipment that utilized patented features that allowed faster cutting times with closer tolerances on small diameter parts for less cost. In 1975, the assets of Metal Cut-Off, Inc were sold to Chuck Green and Green’s Metal Cut-Off was formed and grew to became a well-recognized and respected name in the field. In 2007, Chuck sold the business to Jeff & Renee Dunstan (Dunstan Enterprises). Jeff ran the company with his heart and soul until he passed away suddenly in 2017 at which time Renee took over and continued in the tradition of those before her. In 2023, Greens was sold to Gregg Riphagen, along with his son Garrett Riphagen. Whom will continue Green’s as the same custom screw machine parts manufacturer dedicated to providing quality, close-tolerance parts, with on-time delivery at a lower cost. This is all thanks to our custom machines that are still unique to the industry. They are also committed to growing Green’s Metal Cut-Off to better serve our existing customers and as well as building new relationships.
