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.

For 50 years, Ace Clearwater Enterprises has specialized in making other people’s products. “If it’s made out of metal, formed, welded and machined, we can make darn near everything,” Vice President Gary Johnson says.

The key to Gala Industries Inc.’s success involves more than just manufacturing high quality machines. “Equipment similar to ours is made in other countries by different competitors, but where we are set apart is our technology and our ability to service the customer afterward, traveling to their site and personally helping them with their issue,” Vice President Mike Dudding says.

In the last few years, Senior Sys­tems Technology (SST) Inc. has been named Boeing’s Supplier of the Year, received the Raytheon IDS Supplier Excellence Award and was honored as a Distinguished Supplier by ITT. Many electronics manufacturers promise quality and service, but SST is gaining the attention of customers big and small by combining the state-of-the-art capabilities, technology and equipment of a large manufacturing operation with the dedication and loyal service levels of a much smaller firm.

A valve or flame arrester on a tank storing flammable liquids is a necessity for safety that few people think about anymore. It is taken for granted nowadays, whereas in 1925, when Protectoseal Co. was founded, fumes from gasoline, naphtha and kerosene could endanger employee health and be potential fire hazards.

Rules and regulations may not always be wanted, but they are usually needed. When the federal, state or municipal government imposes a mandate concerning prevention and containment of hazardous materials, companies often have to scramble to comply. ENPAC – the worldwide leader in spill prevention, containment and control – answers those questions so its clients can focus on their core business.

DHS Technologies LLC’s commitment to finding unique solutions to its customers’ needs has spurred its innovation, enabling it to grow and prosper throughout the years.

Founded in 1984 as Deployable Hospital Systems (DHS), the Orangeburg, N.Y.-based company is the leader in deployable rapid assembly shelter (DRASH) systems for military units and emergency response agencies.
