Contract Manufacturing

Sanderson MacLeod is a large volume contract manufacturer of twisted wire brushes.

Sanderson MacLeod made the decision early on to manufacture only for OEM customers.  This enables the development of strong partnerships with customers, to keep costs down, to invest in people, equipment and technology and to continually improve operations in terms of speed, quality, reliability, cost savings, and engineering design.

A Confidential Source

Sanderson MacLeod employs a “closed floor” production model. No one outside of employees are allowed in the production area. The methodology allows for extremely high levels of confidentiality when proprietary brushes are manufactured. Brushes are never outsourced to plants outside of Sanderson MacLeod, mitigating risk of intellectual property theft or misuse.
