Business Spotlight - EMI Inc.
I visited EMI Inc., located on Shelly Road in Upper Salford Township, as part of my recognition of National Small Business Week, which runs from May 1-7

Todd Ferrence, president and chief executive officer of EMI Inc. showed me the company’s operations. The company serves as a distributor and technical support supplier for the machine tool industry, and it offers a wide range of services from making specialty replacement parts, rehabbing older machines to modernizing and creating specialized machinery for the machine tool industry. EMI Inc. not only upgrades and repairs machines for its customers, it also creates new machinery to meet clients’ specifications. The company also sells machines in the tool and die and specialized manufacturing fields.

Todd and his staff provided a full tour of the many machines and the specialized processes involved. During my tour, I watched as metal work was cut to specific design using a plasma cutting machine. EMI Inc. serves a variety of customers from small local machine shops to larger national and international companies. For more information on EMI, Inc. please visit
