For us, it started in October of 1996, when MB Kit Systems’ founders decided to leave Solingen, Germany, to start a new life in the United States. MB Kit Systems was founded with the strong understanding of what can be achieved when combining a high-quality t-slot aluminum framing system with expert engineering. Akron, Ohio, was decided as the location to start MB Kit Systems Inc. and MB Kit Systems soon became the premier U.S. integrator of t-slot aluminum framing solutions.  

In 2020, MB Kit Systems, LLC. (a subsidiary of WEISS North America, Inc.) acquired the assets of MB Kit Systems Inc. and in 2022, MB Kit Systems, LLC. acquired the assets of Parker IPS (Wadsworth, OH), a provider of custom-engineered mechanical hardware solutions for industrial applications. Today, we  are now operating as Industrial Profile Systems.  

Quality components and hardware is not the only value we offer. No-cost engineering services and an experienced team ensure customer service is the priority. Our team works closely with distributors, end users, and original equipment manufacturers across industries to design custom extruded aluminum solutions for linear motion, material handling, machine bases, and framing applications using the most appropriate elements available. 

Utilizing high-quality t-slot aluminum extrusions enables the Industrial Profile Systems team to design and construct precise structural aluminum solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. Compared to other framing systems, the differences in aluminum extrusion quality are often obvious from a side-by-side comparison, but the advantages go beyond aesthetics. The high straightness tolerance of IPS extrusions translates to an overall superior framing product and enables dynamic motion to be integrated into support structures.

The versatility of modular, t-slot aluminum framing systems has its own inherent advantages by enabling simple alterations and machine process revisions. Our engineering group has an arsenal of t-slot extrusion profiles and thousands of modular components to select the most appropriate design approach for each application. We specialize in dynamic solutions; designing belt-driven linear actuators with travel from a few inches to over 200 feet (60 m) and designing dynamic motion into machine bases and support structures. Our ability to integrate linear motion into machine support structures enables clients to source a comprehensive mechanical solution for entire lines and work cells.
