Western Industries, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a leading North American outsource manufacturer, assembler and packager of molded plastic and fabricated metal products for leading original equipment manufacturers ("OEM") in the home and outdoor, appliance, agriculture and construction equipment markets. With seven factories located throughout the United States, Western has been a key, strategic supplier to leading OEMs, such as General Electric, Newell Rubbermaid, CNH and John Deere for many years.
The Company's competitive advantages include strong application engineering skills, lean manufacturing structure and dedicated people who take pride in the quality products they manufacture. Western's engineering expertise allows the Company to utilize its manufacturing capabilities to provide high quality products at competitive cost to its customers. As OEM's continue to put emphasis on outsourcing, Western seeks to establish partnering relationships that enable it to enter new and expanding markets where the Company's resources can provide higher value-added products. The Graham Group and Brera share the equity investment in Western on an equal basis.
The Graham Group is a privately held concern founded in 1960 that is comprised of industrial and investment businesses with over $1 billion in net assets. Operating in some 60 locations worldwide, Graham's industrial businesses manufacture consumer, industrial and building products.
