About Us

MTR was founded in 1982 after the historic Farrel Corporation closed their doors. MTR was created by former Farrel Corporation employees who wanted to continue to support US industry by working on large machine tools. MTR obtained the rights to the Farrel, Betts and Sellers lines of machine tools shortly after opening. The former Farrel facility, in Rochester, NY, is MTR’s current home.
