almost 60 years, Superior Manufacturing has provided its customers with
top-quality products and impeccable service. While commitment to
excellence has been, and remains, the cornerstone of our business, our
history reflects our ability to continue to recreate our business within
the ever-changing manufacturing economy.
1945, Superior Manufacturing Company was born out of the post World War
II domestic automobile boom. As the Big Three automobile manufacturers
established dealerships throughout the country, Superior developed a profitable
niche supplying durable steel storage bins for this market. The recession
of the early fifties, coupled with market saturation of dealerships, necessitated
a change in direction for the company. Superior developed the engineering
expertise required to become a job shop manufacturer for textile,
telecommunications, and other emerging industries, providing both machining
and metal fabricating services.
expansion of our country's infrastructure that began in the late sixties
lead to significant opportunities with major construction equipment manufacturers.
Operator cabs, fuel and hydraulic tanks, and other precision fabricated
assemblies became and remain today as the mainstream of our business.
Management's commitment to the specialization and modernization required
to continue to prosper in all economic climates has lead to many enhancements
in capabilities over the years, including a fully automated paint system
for both liquid and powder finishes. Modern equipment and a highly
skilled and dedicated workforce assure that Superior is well positioned
to face the many challenges of the new millennium.
