Our story

Joining metal together and joining people to our experienced team who are passionate about making quality custom machinery with skill and artistry is what we at Press Lock Technologies (PLT) are all about.

Founded in 2020 by Sandy and Byron Selorme after more than a quarter of a century working in the manufacturing industry, our designers have been building and servicing machinery for businesses all over North America, such as Otis, MP Husky, Rheem, Mueller, and Direct Sign.

As a fully independent, Canadian-owned business, it is our goal to bring back the great craftsmanship North American engineering was once known for but within a modern context of green, environmentally-friendly technologies that are at the cutting edge of innovation in Cold Metal Joining.
