Company Profile

About Clifton Tube Cutting

Our products are designed to our clients’ specifications using high-quality materials, including aluminum, steel, brass, copper, and stainless steel tubing. We use certified vendors for special processes such as plating, heat treating and rubber bonding to metal.

Clifton Tube Cutting was formed from Clifton Screw Machine Products Inc. which was founded in 1938 by Harry Clifton. The original business was operated on Eleventh Street in Erie, PA. In 1973, the business was sold to the Podufal family who continued operating at the same location. In 1979, the Podufals bought Wolf Metal Products at 9937 Sampson Ave. in Lake City, PA and consolidated all operations to this location.

In 2008, Clifton moved the Sinico precision tube cutting machines to Greenville, PA, now called Clifton Tube Cutting and sold the turned parts assets in Lake City, PA, now called Clifton Machining Division of Great Lakes Automation, to Great Lakes Automation (GLASi) located in McKean, PA. Joe Podufal is active in running both businesses.

Clifton Tube Cutting products are mainly produced from aluminum, steel, brass, copper, and stainless steel tubing. The parts are manufactured according to specifications and drawings provided by our customers. We use certified vendors for outside sourcing of special processes such as plating, grinding or heat treating.

Certified ISO 9001:2008, Clifton Tube Cutting is a precision tube cutting and end finishing job shop. The company provides high quality products and services to a world wide customer base that includes world leaders in the rubber bonded to metal industry, aluminum extrusion mills, steel tube mills and distributors, plastics, some of the largest appliance and automotive manufacturers and assorted OEM businesses.
