Our award-winning Grand Rapids facility uses Lean manufacturing principles to provide a cost competitive U.S. manufacturing solution, close to our customers’ Midwest engineering teams. Our standardized approach to equipment, processes and personnel training enables this work to stay in the U.S., or easily transition to our Mexico facility (Juarez). We also have a proven track record simultaneously launching projects with partners, such as LACROIX Electronics.
