Metal Factory WorkerAt House of Balance, we are a full-service motor, pump, and machine shop that prioritizes customer service. We employ specialized technicians, who all have a variety of skills that enable us to provide around the clock service for the Mid-Atlantic area and beyond.

Our aggregation of equipment and experience enables House of Balance to offer the most comprehensive package of dynamic balancing, vibration analysis, and predictive/proactive maintenance in Maryland, both in-house and in the field throughout our Nation.

  • While on site, shaft alignment work can be accomplished with our C.S.I. laser alignment equipment.
In business for nearly fifty years, we started in the machine industry as a speed shop for race cars. One of our founding partners balanced a driver’s engine, and that customer worked in an industrial plant where he had a vibration in his equipment. He asked us to assess and address the vibration before it created significant problems. At that moment we perceived a larger scale need for solving machinery problems in all industries that rely on technical equipment. Most importantly to our clients, the cost of repair is far better than replacement. Is your machinery in need of service? Whether you are a local hobbyist, a government contractor, a medical facility or a national manufacturer, House of Balance can help. Call Us today.
