Seastrom has established itself as a reliable provider of precision assembly hardware.

By Alan Dorich, Senior Editor, Knighthouse Media

When Seastrom Manufacturing Co. Inc. sends bus bars, clamps or brackets to a customer, they can be certain that they are fabricated to the highest standard. “That’s what the industry counts on,” Sales and Marketing Manager Aaron Hludzenski says.

The precision assembly hardware company also knows that its clients count on strong service, which Seastrom is more than willing to provide. “The customer experience is what keeps us going,” he says. “We need to make it a pleasurable experience for the customer.”

OGS

This Ohio manufacturer, celebrating its 60th anniversary next year, makes a point of listening to both customers and employees.

By Mark Lawton

Tom Bader, vice president of OGS Industries of Akron, Ohio, is thinking about succession planning close to four decades after he almost didn’t join the family business.

“I got interviewed by several other companies,” Bader recalls. “Then my brother and dad sat me down and says they’d like me to join OGS Industries. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. It wasn’t so much about the money – to learn from my father was better than a college education and my brother and I get along fabulously.”

Latham

By Kat Zeman

As the largest manufacturer of inground residential swimming pools and components in North America, Latham Pool Products sells more than 20,000 new pools and roughly 100,000 liners annually.

There’s a reason for that. Aside from more than 60 years of pool manufacturing experience and state-of-the-art driven technology, Latham is known as an innovator in its industry.

Altair

World Energy’s fuel and fuel blends exceed industry standards. 

When AltAir Paramount LLC became part of World Energy earlier this year, it added to a company with a legacy of more than two decades of industry leadership in biofuels. The firm, which is based in Boston, is one of the largest suppliers of biodiesel in America, with more than 200 million gallons of annual production.

“World Energy has been at the very forefront of establishing the biomass-based diesel industry every step of the way,” the company says. “Biomass-based diesel now contributes nearly 2 billion gallons annually to the American fuel tank and nearly 8 billion gallons worldwide.”

After establishing itself as a leader, Harvey is enhancing its operations with lean.

By Alan Dorich, Senior Editor, Knighthouse Media

After nearly 60 years, Harvey Building Products is known for its high-quality windows and doors. “It has a reputation as a premium brand,” President and COO Nick Longman says. “If you talk to some general contractors in the Northeast, they [will] say, ’Give me some Harveys.’”

Waltham, Mass.-based Harvey manufactures and distributes replacement windows, doors and other building materials products. The company’s founders, Longman notes, started the company in 1961 after selling aluminum siding.
