our history

Since 1992 Northwest Machine Works, Inc. has been owned and operated by the Gibbs family.

The company originally formed in the late 1960′s as Gravett’s Machine Works, Inc . Located in downtown Oregon City the company’s main purpose was to produce parts for a newly designed Dialysis machine for the Drake Willock Company.

In 1985 Gravett’s was sold and the new owners changed the name to Northwest Machine Works, Inc. A few years later they relocated the business to it’s current location in Canby, Oregon.
