Profiles

Archery enthusiasts are among the most passionate participants in any outdoor recreational sport. So, it is no wonder BowTech Archery, a manufacturer of bows and arrows in Eugene, Ore., employs a number of archers in its work force, including President Mark Pezzoni. “Because so many people are passionate archers, it helps us understand what real innovation is and what constitutes great archery products,” Pezzoni says.

This October, Bear Archery will launch its 2012 line of compound and traditional bows, just in time for the holiday gifting season. Soon after, Bear Archery will begin working on its 2013 line because as its vice president and general manager Jack Bow­man explains, the three most im­port keys to success in this business are new, newer and newest.

In a time when so many companies are struggling to stay afloat during the slow economy, Atlas Resin Proppants has been facing challenges of an entirely different nature. Taylor, Wis.-based Atlas has grown significantly since its inception in 2004, and the company has been tasked with responding to de­mand while ensuring the operation is prepared to support its growth.

Anderson Chemical Co. is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and not only has the business endured for a century, it has re­mained a family owned operation throughout that time, as well. Alfred Anderson emigrated from Sweden and established the company in Litchfield, Minn., in 1911, and from the 1940s to the ’70s, it was his son, Bruce, who managed the operation’s growth. The family’s third generation – Bruce Jr., Terry, Leif, Lindsay and Brett – is now at the helm, and while the family’s ownership has been a strong foundation for the operation, Anderson attributes its place in the industry to much more than that. 

Sometimes image really is everything. Other days, timing is everything. At Anchor Glass Manufac­turing, image and timing reign supreme every day. In the world of glass bottling, industry giants such as  D.P.S.G, Heinz and Anheuser-Busch need the best packaging for their product and they need it yesterday. As a contract manufacturer for these and other well-known brands, Anchor Glass Container Corp. has been delivering the right image at the right time for the past 24 years.

Incorporated in 1996, EMTEQ quickly has grown into a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative products for the aviation industry. The New Berlin, Wis.-based company specializes in avionics systems integration, interior and exterior lighting, and cabin connectivity and power products for the commercial, military, helicopter and air transport markets. It serves airframe and avionics equipment OEMs, system integrators, modification centers, engineering and leasing firms, and military subcontractors.

With commodity production often going offshore, the United States be­comes more in danger of losing its manufacturing capability. But some domestic manufacturers are combining auto­mation with highly trained employees to provide solutions that – if not sexy – are at least attractive.

Delivering all types of industrial gasses is the most expensive part of the operation, considering the labor and fuel costs involved. So whatever can be done to reduce the number of deliveries is helpful. Delivering gass­es under pressure in thermos-like tanks that keep the gasses 200 to 400 below zero degrees Fahrenheit can provide far more volume than warm­er, low-pressure storage.
