First Day crop

April 5, 2010:  DAY ONE.

Armed with a vision of creating a different kind of company, our dedicated team began to form a customer service philosophy that would become the center of the company while we worked on the many details of getting a startup running.

August 2010:  SPEED.

We began the E236 initiative focused on fast delivery.  This quickly grew into an organizational focus to deliver more than 75% of our products in 48 hours or less – a goal we achieved and surpassed later that year.  We launched a website and provided instant access to all of our documentation.



We launched our new website continuing to improve on the valuable content available to our customers 24/7.  Launched MPT newsletter “Gearing Up”.

September 2011:  INVESTMENT.

Started significant capital investments in our manufacturing capability.  New  machinery focused on improving total customer experience.


March 2012: COMPASSION.

A tornado demolished many homes in nearby Henryville, IN in February.  Master PT responded by sponsoring the Priddy family who lost their home.  The generosity shown by all MPT employees was incredible and it helped this family get back on their feet.

October 2012:  BOB SQUAD.

The MPT product specialist team under Bob Lee’s training and leadership immediately sets a new standard with a dramatic improvement in quote response time and technical expertise available to our customers.

MPT introduces Innovadrive®, a pre-engineered package designed to simplify Variable Speed Belt drive upgrades, to considerable market excitement.

 February 2014:

It’s the end of an era as industry legend Bob Lee retires, having trained an incredible team to deliver for our customers.  Rumored to be gardening a lot, I just saw him here in the office last week…
