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.

Executives at Pointe Precision are learning the value of vertical integration one process at a time. Although President and CEO Joe Kinsella ad­mits his machining facility in Plover, Wis., is far from a one-stop shop for aerospace components, the company continuously investigates opportunities to offer more services in-house as they make sense.

Established by Wolf Smith in 1911, Smith Packing Co. has served central New York as a wholesale distributor and meat processor for 100 years. “One of our biggest assets is that we are diversified,” Vice President Eric Smith points out. Smith Packing is a custom meat processor, food distributor and consolidator and offers storage and transportation services. Additionally, the company delivers U.S. food products overseas to commercial export customers as well as military customers. “All areas of our business work together, which has allowed us to find opportunities for the last 100 years,” Smith notes.

Whether it is to maintain quality, freshness, cleanliness or convenience, The Robinette Company has strived to provide customized packaging solutions to a broad customer base for more than 20 years. The Bristol, Tenn.-based company is committed to serving the food and beverage, textile, construction, nutra­ceutical and healthcare markets with superior and consistent packaging products to meet their individualized needs, it says.

Although there’s no shortage of people wondering if it’s gone for good, the American dream is still alive and well, if you know where to look for it. One place you can find it is in Ogden, Utah, home of custom steel fabrication company Petersen Inc. What started as a small welding business in founder Denis Petersen’s garage has grown into an industry leader celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

When Penda Corp. was established in the mid-1980s, its primary focus was to produce high-quality drop-in bedliners for pickup trucks. Although this remains one of the Portage, Wis.-based manufacturer’s core competencies, its capabilities have expanded in recent years. From sophisticated molded-in-color vehicle components to smart solutions for industries as diverse as water management, Penda has established the market-leading position as an industry expert in heavy-gauge thermoforming, Presi­dent and CEO Ulf Buergel says.

The economy is coming back slowly, and although the manufacturing sector isn’t recovering as quickly as other markets, MasterGrind/EDM is evidence that manufacturers are ramping back up. In fact, the producer of custom precision tooling and components for the tool and die industries has so many orders that it has to turn some business away.
