Marion Machine and Mellott want to give an enormous congratulations to our 2021 Mellott University graduates!

This is Mellott’s 6th year of running the university and we are proud that our three students successfully graduated this year. Each of them was eager to learn all they could  about the service and crushing industries.

Over the past nine months, these students gained a solid foundation for mechanical print reading, hydraulic and electrical fundamentals, machine shop equipment, including problem solving, as well as recognizing a variety of crushing machine applications. Students completed all classroom requirements, testing, and select hands-on exercises while learning from industry experts.

All three students are determined to advance their careers with Marion Machine and Mellott!

Mellott University is a program housed and run by Mellott from September to May. Mellott has partnered with area high school vocational programs to offer students a career path with Mellott in areas such as Service, Manufacturing, Machining, and Support Services.

Check out the photos below of the students with their instructor, Tony Valente and production manager, Patrick Ellis!


Our Metso HP 800 Mainframe had a loose shaft and we re-fit the shaft back to OEM specs with a 2-week-turnaround to get a 3.5-million-ton-plant back up and running.
