EB Industries Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Customer service, quality management remain top priorities of electron beam and laser welding firm
FARMINGDALE, N.Y.—Since its founding in 1965 by George DeLalio, EB Industries has remained true to its core values even while updating its technology, expanding its physical plant, and adding new services. The provider of electron beam welding, laser welding, and hermetic laser sealing services is now headed by George’s son, Steve. “My father thought we should always strive to exceed customers’ expectations,” DeLalio said in a release announcing the company’s 50th anniversary. “And that the best way to do that was to combine the latest technology with exceptional engineering services. We’ve consistently lived that mission for the past 50 years.”
EB Industries started with a single electron beam welding machine that was operated around the clock in a 5,000 square-foot facility.
“There was a boom in aerospace and electronics, and my dad was here 18 hours a day, always committed to delivering customers’ parts on time. It was a stressful, yet exciting time,” DeLalio recalled. The company worked with many leading edge manufacturers, supported the Apollo missions, engaged in relay manufacturing, and precision welded millions of military aircraft components.
As EB Industries grew, the company moved into a 16,000 square-foot, custom designed facility in Farmingdale, New York. Additional staff was added to meet the expanded capacity of four electron beam welding machines. In 1984, the company added laser welding and hermetic laser sealing services as the medical device and microelectronics fields demanded high-quality work at high production rates.
Today, EB Industries’ laser welding services are supported by an array of different lasers covering a power range from 50 to 4,000 watts, as well as environmental control chambers and computer controlled CNC tables for fast, automated production.
In 2000, the company adopted a lean manufacturing methodology, leading to a major reinvention of all processes involved, from RFQs to final inspection.
“The idea was to deliver the quality we’ve always been known for, but basically be faster and more responsive than our competitors,” said DeLalio. “So we looked at everything we do, figured out ways of speeding things up without cutting corners. We’re really proud of our lead times, and we’ve also expanded the services we can offer.”
The company’s quality management system has enabled EB Industries to easily meet NADCAP and ISO certifications, as well as proprietary standards. In 2013, the company launched a strategic investment initiative aimed at further expanding its capabilities to include a larger shop floor, more state of the art welding equipment, and a larger workforce, all with the aim of better and still faster customer service.
“For 50 years, we’ve been setting the industry standard, and we look forward to serving our loyal customers for the next 50 years,” DeLalio enthusiastically stated. For more on electron beam welding, see Why EB Welding Is Still Cutting Edge Technology.
