Below is our most recent post, with links to more projects on the side navigation. Please feel free to share any articles or pictures via your social networks. And of course comment, call or email us with any questions.

As a manufacturer of custom industrial sewing products, occasionally we get products out of the norm. Recently, we had one of those requests; Garry and Ellen from Texas came to us for a hexagon shaped table cover to fit their outdoor patio table. We make custom fitted table covers all the time, but have never received a request for one of this shape. After working with our engineer, our production manager was able to get the calculations to optimize our cutting department so the material waste was minimal. Being a fitted table cover, the hardest part is getting the corners correct. If not, you will have either a table cover that is way too big or one that will not...

Gary Manufacturing opened for business in 1958. Today, we do not know much about the original Gary of Gary Manufacturing, but we know that the original owner sold to Bob in the mid 1960’s . After 20+ years of ownership Bob sold to current owners Brian and Helen Smith in April 1995. Brian and Helen have managed to turn a small factory with 9 employees into a 12,000-sq. ft. space with over 30 employees. I recently sat down with the owners and current general manager, Kerri Smith, yes… it is all in the family here, to discuss their time as owners and what they think of the 60-year milestone. Brian is originally from England and Helen comes from Ireland, they...
