    TSMA Meeting on February 4 in Fergus Falls - Strategy Session and Tour of West Tool

    In lieu of a guest speaker, TSMA's February meeting will focus on information sharing and information gathering. Please join us - your voice is valued!  Alexandria members, it's your turn to drive!

    TSMA 2020 Annual Meeting:
    • Meet Your Board Members
    • 2019 Highlights and Stats
    • 2019 Financial Recap
    • 2019 Member of the Year Award
    • 2019 Collaborator of the Year Award
     TSMA Strategy Session
    Each year, TSMA board members gather for a half-day retreat for the purpose of looking back (past success, missed opportunities, etc.) and looking ahead. The annual planning session culminates with an outline of Goals and Objectives, a document intended to drive board and staff decision making for the coming 12 months.  In preparation for the 2020 TSMA Board Retreat, we'd like your input. 
    • Does TSMA meet your expectations as a membership organization?
    • Where do we shine? Where could we do better? 
    • Do you feel engaged and informed, or do you find current communication efforts to be lacking? 
    • Do we offer the right number of networking opportunities? Or, the right quantity, but not the right format?  
    • Current benefit programs encompass healthcare, workers comp, accepting credit card payments, and HR services. What other programs would you like us to explore?
    Please take the time to join us on February 4 - take in two manufacturing tours, check out the new Outstate Brewing Company, and lend your voice to TSMA's plans for the future!

    Tour TWO companies: 
    West Tool & Design / West Tool Enclosures

       

    Don Westra founded West Tool & Design in 1990 to be a supplier of fixtures and machine tools to the electronics industry. The company quickly diversified into a supplier of parts, machines and systems to customers serving diverse markets such the mechanical equipment, aviation and medical device industries. They can support high-mix, low volume custom fabrication requirements.
     
    In 2009 West Tool & Design purchased and began producing custom-sizable UL listed enclosures through a fabrication facility in Battle Lake, Minnesota. That business became West Tool Enclosures in 2012 and is now owned by Glen Westra.
     
    Evan Westra began operating West Tool & Design after Don’s retirement in 2009 and became the owner in 2014. The commitment to excellence is as strong as ever.  West Tool & Design will continue to provide value to our customers through solutions to manufacturing needs with system design and build, precision components, fabrications, and assemblies.
     
    Due to West Tool & Design’s strong growth in enclosures and junction boxes, West Tool Enclosures, Inc. became a separate company in 2012. Located in close proximity to West Tool & Design, both companies are under guidance of the next generation of the Westra family and the commitment to excellence is as strong as ever.
