ETM Manufacturing Partners with Lewa Process Technologies

Fluid Processing Equipment OEM Selects Local Manufacturer for High-Quality, Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication


LITTLETON, Mass. (November 2, 2015) ― Lewa Process Technologies, a global provider of fluid processing platforms and engineering services, with demanding aesthetic and functional requirements, has selected ETM Manufacturing, as its preferred outsourcing partner for highly customized components.  Deven-based LEWA Process Technologies had long managed the entire supply chain – from design to manufacture and delivery – in-house. This approach allowed the company to set, measure and maintain the highest quality standards for its highly customized, reliable fluid processing equipment for the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, personal care and fine chemical industries.  With demand exploding in core markets, the team at Lewa determined that it was time to find a sheet metal fabrication partner who could allow the company to focus on product innovation.

Emphasizing the need for a local partner that could meet its rigorous standards, the supply chain team selected ETM in August 2015, based on its flexible capacity, proven track record in customer responsiveness and well-established programs and processes for delivering the highest levels of quality. Ongoing support along with improvements to manufacturability and responsive delivery has resulted in expanded work with ETM.

“In the industries we serve, we are valued for our commitment and ability to consistently deliver the perfect balance of accuracy, repeatability and processing innovation,” said Kathie Peloquin, supply chain manager for LEWA Process Technologies. “We selected ETM for a pilot project and found that the team shared our ethic for quality and responsiveness; the value-add they provided in helping us accelerate the process of turning concepts into components cemented our choice.”

Since quadrupling its operation in Littleton in 2011, ETM Manufacturing has continued to attract New England-based companies with a formula that combines expertise in precision sheet metal fabrication, a customer-centric culture and the application of lean manufacturing

principles to consistently deliver cost-effective, high quality products. Its custom programs for sheet metal fabrication, machining and assembly provide a local source for large companies like computing giant EMC2 Corporation and start-ups like solar mounting system leader, Panel Claw and Antenna International.

“We’ve continuously invested in processes and systems that make our production operations efficient, scalable and able to deliver the highest quality products consistently,” said Rob Olney, president of ETM.  “Our approach is what attracts customers like LEWA Process Technologies, for whom quality is paramount – and allows us to grow our business with them.”
