 HISTORY OF MIDWEST ULTRASONICS, INC.

   I first heard about ultrasonic welding back in 1991 when a neighbor moved into our building. His new business was going to be manufacturing ultrasonic horns and fixtures. He was excited about his new business and would tell me all about it. As the years went by, I learned more and more about the ultrasonic tooling business and was starting to get very interested myself. Already having my own machinery rebuilding business since 1986, I thought it would be fun to dabble in a second business.

   In August 1997, I started my own ultrasonic tooling company. I brought in a partner who had some experience in ultrasonics, and since I already had the building, machinery, and equipment, we were on our way. We experienced immediate success. Our sales grew quickly, the company was growing, everything was great and then suddenly we found ourselves in the middle of a recession. Just when things seemed to start picking up, along came 9-11. This seemed to delay the recovery even more. Since I’ve always been the kind of guy that likes to try and turn something negative into a positive, I decided this would be a good time for me to sell my interest in the business giving me the opportunity to start my own company when the economy got better.

   In August of 2004, Five months after selling my share, I found myself back in business. We just celebrated our second anniversary, and I couldn’t be more excited about our future.

   Over the past two years, I have received many phone calls from customers complimenting our work. For someone to take the time to pick up the phone and call  means a lot to me. Those that know me, know that quality has always come first, and always will.

   Thanks for taking the time to visit our new web site. We have tried to give you a brief description of our services. We understand that not all questions can be answered on a web site so please feel free to call me any time.

   I look forward to working with you in the future,
