Products readied for shipment are placed on wooden pallets and secured by plastic shrink-wrap. The tool/die department enables the company to be flexible in meeting customer needs for specialty items. The maintenance department supports all departments to keep operations running smoothly. The office is composed of sales, purchasing, production, product development and accounting/financial.
