Southern Illinois Crankshaft, Inc. was established in 1985 by Michael Schaefer in a small building located in southern Illinois. In his shop, Michael started by regrinding crankshafts and with his proven dedication and customer service, his company soon grew. After eight years, the company built a new 7600 square foot building in Red Bud, Illinois.

With an extremely dedicated and talented staff, the company bolstered their operations by expanding their capabilities to manufacture crankshafts in house.

In the last four years, the company has expanded their facilities by almost 23,000 square feet. Investments in modern technology along with a long time staff of excellent and well-seasoned machinist, Southern Illinois Crankshaft has continued to flourish.
