Integrity Manufacturing Succeeds Former Lindy Plant
New ownership highlights growing role of women in American manufacturing
Romeoville, Il – September 25, 2018 – Integrity Manufacturing, Inc., a job shop stamping house and leading provider of finishing, management services and assembly work for multiple industries, announces its relaunch as a woman-owned , American-made business after more than 50 years as Lindy Manufacturing, originally based in Downers Grove, IL. The new organization, which has expanded to include two additional plants in Chicago and one in Los Angeles, will offer research and development and project management services for its clients, in addition to producing a full range of manufactured metal parts.
Company owner and President Cheryl Wellman, originally a key player at Lindy Manufacturing, says that project management is a natural offshoot of being a woman-owned manufacturing business.
“The trend of women in manufacturing is growing, and it reflects on the fact that women are at the forefront of how the market is changing,” she says. “Manufacturers are more than providers of goods: we also advise and support our customers, and that allows for long-term relationships and the development of customized solutions.”
Both Wellman and Integrity’s Vice President, Holly Barajas, held multiple positions within Lindy Manufacturing and worked closely on projects from beginning to end, overseeing all aspects of production, shipping, and customer service, in addition to marketing and plant management. Both partners see their broad experience as invaluable to providing the metal stamping business with its consulting angle.
“For projects that involve coordinating multiple steps and outsourcing additional components, it makes sense for both us and the client,” says Wellman. “We want the best materials to ensure that a project achieves optimal results. For our client, the logistics of coordinating everything can be labor-intensive, and we can help streamline that process and reduce overall costs.”
The decision to create the new company included joining forces with another Lindy Manufacturing employee, Sean Stack, who currently serves as Integrity’s General Manager.
“Our goal for Integrity is to take American manufacturing to a new level,” says Wellman. “That means putting a priority on quality and innovation, giving our employees the training and support they need, and working collaboratively with both them and our clients.”
