JobPack’s dedicated scheduling system helps manufacturers make informed decisions on expediting and investments.

By Tim O’Connor

It used to be that integration was king. When Peter Welsh started in the manufacturing execution systems industry 15 years ago, customers wanted one complete system that could do everything.

During its 100 years in business, Western States Machine Co. has seen many of its peers and competitors make major changes to manufacturing operations such as offshoring production to Asia.

Producing a vast array of sheet metal parts and assemblies for the aircraft and aerospace industries, Globe Engineering is in a class by itself.

By Eric Slack

Known for its ability to fabricate the sheet metal parts and assemblies its customers require, Globe Engineering has built a name for itself with companies both big and small in the aircraft and aerospace industries. Able to produce everything from tailpipes, aircraft spinners and headers to venturis and exhaust assemblies, Globe Engineering has the expertise and capabilities to produce a wide range of precision parts. Not too shabby for a company that started out bending tubes for children's furniture more than a half-century ago.

“Globe Engineering is an aerospace manufacturing company founded in 1946 by Albert Nelson Jr.,” President Jeff Teague says. “Albert was an aerospace engineer who designed and built his own tube-bending machine. He began by building infant high chairs and car seats in his garage. He then won a Boeing contract for an aircraft drop-tank frame and the rest is history.”
