GRAND LEDGE, MI - Roberts Sinto Corporation has announced the opening of their new Sinto Surface Treatment Test Center at 150 Orchard St. in Grand Ledge. This center will enhance the design and engineering of equipment to the specific customer application.
Roberts Sinto Corporation has been an innovator in the design and manufacture of foundry equipment and system engineering for over 40 years. With two manufacturing locations in Michigan (Newaygo and Grand Ledge), Roberts Sinto has become the North American leader in the foundry equipment industry.
