“We are truly proud to be a Northampton Company, it’s great to fly the “made in Northampton” flag and to create some real value at the factory” said John Fry, Plant Manager at the facility. He added, “With such a long time at the location we have built a skilled workforce who truly understand and respond to our customers’ needs. We are proud of them and the products we make.

I want to thank all employees for their efforts in the past and for the future and our customers for their business”.
