Jost Web Header Puzzle Piece Opt 3 Rev 1 (2-17).jpg

We feel like we put together Jigsaw Puzzles for a living! We take random bits of information and assemble them into working solutions. Our tools are the many years of experience in manufacturing plants, a large database, and the manufacturing resources developed by helping people make their products. Our clients call these solutions automated manufacturing processes, but we like to call them "Ideas That Work"!

My degree is in Industrial Engineering with an emphasis on Optimizing Production Processes and Systems. I also studied ergonomics, safety, cost justification, ROI, facilities planning, machine design, lean manufacturing, etc. Our father and brother helped us apply these principles to the sale of Machine Tool Components and Special Machinery. We work with many World Class Manufacturers and Machine Tool Builders to develop manufacturing systems for machining, assembling and testing production parts. We now blend CNC Technologies with Automated Material Handling and Special Machinery.

Our passion is helping companies optimize their manufacturing plan by organizing the pieces of their puzzle and developing processes and machinery that produce results, "Ideas That Work"!

Typical clients we work with are:

BUSINESS OWNERS OR EXECUTIVES who have done everything they can think of already and are looking for fresh ideas! Do you need a Breakthrough Manufacturing Process or Machine?

MANAGERS trying to balance increased production, quality problems, lean, 5S, tight budgets, looming deadlines, and an over-worked staff. We are consultants, problem solvers, partners, and qualified sources for you.

ENGINEERS feeling like Magicians...Are you trying to pull a "Rabbit Out of Your Hat"? Another set of deadlines....The project can’t fail….It must work….On time and On budget.

SUCCESSFUL MANUFACTURERS are where your customers reward you, your company admires you, and your friends and family are proud of you!
