Products & Processes

A Wider Range of Products with End-to-End Supply Chain Management

The Whitesell Group provides the widest available range of highly engineered, specialty, and standard or Class C products and extended services solutions for several industry segments, including automotive (OEM-direct and tier), aerospace, defense, medical, lawn and garden, appliance, elevator, HVAC, energy, heavy equipment, and others. We support our customers’ needs for supply chain consolidation and sustainable material cost-downs through strategic acquisitions. We continue to expand toward a market-dominant position of core competence across a diverse range of product solutions and metal forming processes, all with single-source logistical support.

Superior Technical & Engineering Resources

The Whitesell Group differentiates itself in markets globally by better enabling and empowering its customers to innovate. We apply superior technical resources to our design engineering, manufacturing engineering, and applications engineering, all while dedicating the efforts of our specialists and scientists to research and development. We have also vertically integrated diverse process capabilities, in contrast to other supply chain services providers. In addition, we offer creative approaches to outsourcing, assembly and sub-assembly, third-party logistics (3PL), and end-to-end supply chain management programs.

Comprehensive Products & Processes Provide Value for Customers
