Our first furnace was designed and built by Jeff McLaughlin in Avilla, Indiana

To list everything McLaughlin Services does would take some time. Needless to say, the company is much more than the maintenance and repair shop it started out as in 2007. When it was first established, McLaughlin Services offered complete furnace rebuilds, including structural fabrication, refractory, piping, rigging, mechanical assembly, electrical and controls. But it didn’t take long for the Avilla, Ind., company to branch out. Shortly after opening its doors, McLaughlin Services started fabrication of car-bottom, temper and atmosphere furnaces and support equipment. Since then, this MTI Associate Member has started supplying custom flow panels and piping as well as custom, easily expandable endothermic generators.

Additional services offered include rigging, transportation, tear-outs, structural fabrication, piping (atmosphere and fuel gas), mechanical assembly (including pneumatic, hydraulic and power transmission), electrical wiring (power control and thermocouple), and controls (panel building and installation). Scale of service varies from individual component replacement to complete furnace removal and rebuilding. Furnaces can be upgraded to meet current standards and converted from electric to gas. State-of-the-art pulse-fired burners can also be installed on your existing furnace(s).

Emergency Service & Field Training

When you have unscheduled downtime on your furnace, we know that having a quick, safe and reliable OEM partner that you can call on to make the necessary repairs will save you thousands of dollars lost in wasted time offline. We know the urgency of getting production up and running again and we are committed to being there for you, right when you need us. 

That’s why with McLaughlin Furnace Group we provide 24/7 emergency repair services. Whether you have a need for refractory and insulation repairs, mechanical adjustments, welding, combustion tuning, and controls or electrical troubleshooting our field service technicians have the skills and speed to get your heat treat facility back to operating at it’s highest level. 

We also know that most heat treat facilities struggle to get their new operators and maintenance staff properly trained. Because of that, our industry experts on staff are available to provide you with in-house training at your facility, and offer a preventative maintenance schedule as well as conduct safety checks, temperature uniformity surveys, vacuum leak checks, and atmospheric gas or combustion analysis.


“… Even though there’s 1600 miles apart it was as if you were next door and on sight all the time… I could go on and on about the generator but your service is the best.”George A. Chiaro, Seattle Heat Treaters

Rebuilding Equipment


Rebuilt Furnaces–Better than New

McLaughlin Services rebuilds all types of furnaces, and is the largest rebuilder of furnaces in the nation.

Most (but not all) are rebuilt at McLaughlin’s state-of-art manufacturing facility. The furnaces are stripped down to the shell, and then sandblasted down to the bare metal. Warped metal is straightened or replaced, and cracks are repaired & reinforced. The lining is re-bricked including proprietary hearth and door lintel designs. The combustion system is upgraded with fuel efficient burners and state-of-art controls. Door and elevator mechanicals are upgraded with rugged, yet easy to maintain systems.

With years of experience, McLaughlin knows the weaknesses and typical failure modes of most furnaces. When rebuilding the furnace, many items are reinforced for longer life. Many components are upgraded to modern, more robust designs. When complete, the rebuilt furnace is better than when it was first built.

We Rebuild Vacuum Pump Systems

McLaughlin Services rebuilds all types of pumps no matter the manufacturer.

Most (but not all) are rebuilt at McLaughlin’s state-of-art manufacturing facility. The pumps are cleaned and sealed. Broken components are fixed or replaced, and cracks are repaired & reinforced. The lining is tested for leaks and quality seal. With years of experience, McLaughlin knows the weaknesses and typical failure modes of vacuum pumps.

When rebuilding the pump, many items are reinforced for longer life. Many components are upgraded to modern, more robust designs. When complete, the rebuilt pump is better than when it was first built.
