TARUS Products makes changes to improve processes and products for the next half-century.

TARUS Products manufactures four different product lines of machines, making it unique among competitors. Those machines are 5-Axis CNC Milling Machines, multi-Axis CNC Deep-hole Drilling (sometimes called “gun-drills”) Machines, 5-Axis Design Studio Milling Machines and Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM). “Most of the TARUS competitors specialize in only one of those,” Vice President Douglas Chase says. “A customer, such as a mold and die shop, can come to TARUS for a 5-Axis Milling machine, a gun drill and a CMM – all from same manufacturer. They are able to get synergy across product groups.”


Welded Tubes of Ohio succeeds by working with customers and manufacturing high-quality tubing.

By Mark Lawton, Knighthouse Media

Welded Tubes was founded in 1958 and originally produced small diameter tubing for the auto industry but soon switched to manufacturing tubes for vacuum cleaners and floor cleaning equipment produced by such companies as Hoover and Electrolux. In the late 1990s, manufacturers of floor cleaning equipment began going overseas for their steel tubes – China, in particular – or began using plastic instead of steel tubing. “We had to reinvent ourselves,” says Iain Gilchrist, vice president of sales, who started at Welded Tubes in 2006. “We went back to automotive to promote our engineered electric resistance welded product and technical services.”
