McCain Industrial Services may be located in South Williamsport, but their services have been used as far away as Egypt.
"We're doing a lot of different things," said Wayne McPheron, co-owner, "We haven't turned away too many jobs."
McCain, in business since 2001, repairs, installs and performs service checks on industrial material handling equipment. Work that McCain traditionally performs includes metal detectors, which are used in the food industry, packaging systems and electrical installations.
As McPheron explained, there is a variety of products that are being bagged such as sidewalk salt and animal feed. He also showed that some machines simply fill a bag with the desired weight of each product while some create a bag, fill it and seal it.
"There are a ton of things that are being bagged than you'd even imagine," McPheron said.
McCain was founded by McPheron and his partner John Cain, who had 25 years experience in the industry. McPheron wasn't sure how it would turn out but wanted to see if it would work.
"We probably had six months of work and I said, 'Let's give it a shot and see what happens,'" he said.
Though their headquarters are in South Williamsport, McPheron said most of the work is out of the area.
"A majority of our work is in the Northeast. I'll say from Virginia north," he said, "We go out to Illinois."
McPheron said the company doesn't do a lot of advertising they just make connections through networking. He said they receive new clients by other customers telling them about their good service.
"We've done good work and we stand by our work," McPheron said.
While most of their business deals with industrial equipment, McPheron said they do other smaller jobs such as building steel stairs.
"We do everything from installing air compressors," he said, "... We do a lot of everything. We do a lot of turn-key jobs."
Some of McCain's customers include Kellogg's and Frito-Lay. But McCain also has worked with companies outside of the country. Besides Egypt, the company has worked with businesses in Mexico and Canada.
Though McPheron said there isn't a large customer base for their business in central Pennsylvania, he said they are part of the community and those ties keep them based out of the area.
McPheron said like any business, the future its unknown but the company will work to provide the best service.
"I hope to continue to grow," he said, "I guess I see a bright future for us. It's like any other business, there's a lot of work involved."
