Star Engineering

Combining Tradition, Experience, Innovation and Quality


(Innovative – Reliable – Simple)

Custom kiln car moving equipment and systems are a STAR specialty. Anchored by three generations of experience, and an impressive portfolio of successful projects, STAR engineers and builds innovative – yet simple – car moving equipment and systems. From a single piece of equipment to a complete system, all STAR projects are designed, manufactured, programmed, and thoroughly tested at our facility in New Lexington, OH. STAR products are installed throughout the United States and internationally. STAR offers commissioning, training, and service for all of our equipment. Please explore the links below to learn more.

Other Equipment

Although STAR’s market niche has historically been designing and building kiln car moving equipment for the ceramic industry, our capabilities and expertise in machine design, system automation, fabrication and machining serve many other customers in “non-ceramic” sectors. We have recently completed projects for oil and gas, extruded plastics, glass, automotive, and other industries. Contact STAR with your custom equipment requirements.

Technical Support and Spare Parts

At STAR, we understand that effective technical support is of utmost importance to our customers – so we’ve always made it a top priority. Along these same lines, a reliable source of reasonably-priced spare and replacement parts is vital. We have this covered, too. When a customer calls STAR for technical support or spare parts, they are not confronted with a recording and a series of menus – rather, they are quickly connected to an expert who will help them. Please refer to the “contacts” link for specific technical support contacts.
