Located in the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country, Machine Specialty & Manufacturing Inc. strives to achieve the highest level of quality and reliability in meeting our customer’s needs.
MSM was founded in 1982 by its president, Andy Vigé, in Cade, LA. Starting with a mere 2,500 ft2 facility, World War II-era lathe, and a team of five, he grew the company by providing quality work and unmatched customer service.
Upon realizing the fast growth of the company, Lois and Stan Vigé sold their interests in two companies to join forces with their son, Andy, and purchased LA Flange located in Bunkie, Louisiana. In 1986 Colette Vigé joined MSM’s outside sales team to eventually work her way up to Vice President. By (year) the Vigé family’s early success pushed them to move to a larger facility in Lafayette, LA. By 1992 MSM had outgrown its original facilities and moved to its current location in Youngsville, LA which now encompasses over 350,000 ft2.
Our Youngsville facility features over 75 CNC machining centers, in-house NDT/NDE, stress relieving furnaces, fabrication and cladding shops, quality department, drafting and design, safety director and sub contracting to an offsite engineering firm for all R&D and API confirmation designs.
Machine Specialty & Manufacturing Inc.’s adoption of such industry standards as ISO 9001:2015, API Q1, API 6A, API 16A, API 16C, ASME BPVC U stamp, and NBIC R stamp has promoted steady growth and unmatched quality. By operating under these codes we can assure our products exceed our customer’s needs and expectations.
At Machine Specialty we take the safety of our employees very seriously. Under the guidance of our Safety Director, mandatory programs have been implemented which greatly reduces the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses. Monthly meetings stress the importance of job specific hazards and allow our employees to express their concerns about their working environment.
Our welding facilities offer a wide range of capabilities which include the application of CRO/CRA, fabrication, pipe welding, and equipment repair. MSM utilizes several welding processes which include the use of mechanized GMAW, automated GTAW-P, submerged arc, SMAW and manual GTAW. We specialize in NACE / API 6A / ASME BPVC / DNV compliant welding of low alloy steels for high pressure applications, pressure vessel construction, and corrosion resistant alloys such as alloy 625 and 316 on valves and flanges.
