President - Custom Products & Services, Inc., Inver Grove Heights, MN.

CPS was established in 1988 and has been involved in all aspects of workplace issues as it relates to manufacturing processes.  We have always concentrated our efforts towards assisting customers with developing equipment, tools and workstations that provide the highest level of ergonomic compliance for maximum productivity.  We are deeply involved in designing and providing custom solutions for manual assembly operations that require better and safer ergonomic solutions, while improving output and performance. 

Personally, I have been involved in the industrial, electronics and medical manufacturing industries since 1970.  I began CPS in 1988 to provide the industry with a source for "custom" solutions to those very challenging problems and issues that cannot be solved with conventional off-the-shelf products.  Today, nearly 60% of our business revolves around custom designed or custom modified products and equipment.  We currently work with business from all over the world, and welcome the opportunity to be involved with nearly any aspect of manual production or manufacturing processes in an effort to find viable, cost effective alternatives.
