...was started in 1997
after owner and machinist, Steve Westermann, received news that
his current position as R&D machine shop manager at
Reynolds Metals Company would soon succumb to corporate
downsizing. Seeking a more stable atmosphere, he started a small
machine shop from the back of 460 Cycle Company, a motorcycle repair
shop in Disputanta, VA. Soon he outgrew that space and moved to his
current location at 3830-A Corporate Road, just off Rives Road in
Petersburg, VA. Steve brings over 25 years of vast
machining experience with him. His current shop is a new 10,000
square foot facility in Prince George County, Southpoint Business
Since the move to the
current location, several other machinists have joined the "family"
as well as a welder, fabricator, and an engineer. Combined, the team
at 460 has over 100 years of expertise in machining, welding,
fabrication, and engineering. Our goal here is to weather any
economic downturn by providing excellent service and value to our
customers and a stable workplace for our employees. We are committed
