We supply a variety of markets spanning five continents including the automotive OE supply chain (as a Tier II/III supplier), the US Military, the consumer electronics market and more.

The following combine to set UP&R apart from its competition:

 

History

Continuous operation since 1971.

Redundancy

Multiple facilities with a total of 150,000 square feet of space.

Made in USA

Our domestic production in Northeast Ohio proudly contributes to a tradition of innovation and industry support services that began here over 100 years ago.

Global Partners

Successful development of a global sourcing program that has been active for 20+ years, including strong global logistics capabilities.

From Small to Large Volume

Working from prototype to production quantities is standard at UP&R as most tooling is made in house. Outsourced tools, when required, are made within 30 miles of our Ohio factories.

Active Enhancement

UP&R has acquired several competitors and actively seeks new consolidation opportunities; makes consistent, disciplined capital expenditures; expanded its US factories; and targets continuous improvement via Six Sigma, Kaizen, and the practice of 5S.
