V W Broaching Service was founded in 1955 by George W. Roschman, in a small basement rental space in the heart of Chicago. By 1958, when it was incorporated in the State of Illinois, V W was one of the premier providers of broaching services in the Midwest, and quickly acquiring customers nationwide.
Along with traditional horizontal broaching machines, designed to cut square-sided shapes into internal forms, V W rapidly built its machinery inventory to include vertical-ram, continuous-chain, and high-speed broaching machines - capable of competing favorably with the milling process on all types of external forms as well.
By 1959 V W had outgrown its small quarters and acquired its current 54,000 square foot building in Chicago. Today V W continues under the leadership of Russell Roschman and Georgiann (Dytrych) Roschman, providing the same personalized service, and utilizing the latest advancements in technology.
For more than 50 years V W Broaching Service has provided precision machining services for a wide variety of clients from the smallest shops to the largest of corporations. We've worked on parts for every imaginable industry - biomedical, automotive, home appliances, hand tools, government, consumer goods. You name it, we've helped produce it.
