Component Engineering and West Michigan Gage are joining together to meet a broader range of customer needs across multiple industries.

Component Engineering and West Michigan Gage are both established and respected West Michigan quality inspection solutions providers with decades of success for a broad range of industries and applications.  With this new partnership, both companies will be able to bring expanded capabilities and capacity to their customers and support continuing rapid growth.

West Michigan Gage and Component Engineering each have state-of-the-art design and manufacturing capabilities, both with ISO 9001:2015 certification and a complete inventory of machining, inspection, and design equipment. Both companies bring very capable teams and a diversified portfolio of customers across multiple industries and geographies. Additionally, Component Engineering brings their line of TruPosition probes and automated inspection capabilities, including contact and non-contact automated inspection solutions.

Combined, West Michigan Gage and Component Engineering will continue to serve their existing customers with the same great teams and capabilities their customers value. Additionally, the combination enables the companies to invest in new facilities and equipment, offering expanded capacity and capabilities in gaging and automated inspection to support their rapid growth.

Al Smith and Terry Miller, former General Managers of each business, will continue to serve as our Operations leaders. Al Smith’s focus will be on gaging and fixturing, while Terry Miller will focus on automated inspection and the TruPosition probes business. Plans are underway to consolidate the two businesses into a newly constructed, 24,000 SF facility in Wyoming, Michigan.

“We are excited about what the combination of these two established companies can bring to our customers,” said John Lallo, Partner and President of CE Quality Solutions and TruPosition.  “In addition to the ability to maximize design and manufacturing capabilities and efficiencies, we can now take learning from each other to move our solutions further and faster in meeting the quickly evolving quality inspection needs of our end customers.”
