Welcome to Universal Mfg. Co.

Home  / Letter from the President

We are a growing company with a proud history and a bright future. Since the 1940’s we have been engaged in making things – not concepts or ideas, actual things. The products we have created and produced have changed over the many years, but the fact that we make things has not. We do not intend that this fact will change.

Another attribute that we claim proudly is our ability to identify challenges and manufacture solutions. We do this with an eye on our environment, the safety of our employees, our customers and the men and women of our armed forces. We also pay special attention to improving or enhancing efficiency. We have been in the remanufacturing business long before it was fashionable and we continue to be in the business because it makes sense to our customers and our environment. Safety is involved in virtually everything we make – from brake calipers to lifts that transport people more than 100 feet in the air to armor that protects members of our military.

These simple concepts drive what we do and thus who we are – a customer centered company. This in turn drives our philosophy – actually we believe a truism – that people, whether customers, vendors, investors or fellow employees are deserving of common courtesy, fair treatment and honesty. We also are firm believers that the success of any operation is significantly dependent on the quality of the people we have to perform the tasks that present. In that regard we are blessed with a dedicated work force that works hard, smart and, we hope and encourage, have fun.

Thanks for checking us out. If you have questions that are not answered on these pages and the separate sites for our operating units, please do not hesitate to contact us.
