November 2009 marked the 50 year anniversary of the first MAIN Manufacturing Products flange catalog. MAIN started in the flange business because our customers could not get the flange they wanted, when they wanted it, for the price they wanted to pay. We have been doing that for 50 years now and I would like to thank our customers for the confidence, reliance, and trust that you have given us over the years. The industry has changed substantially over those years. Our first catalog contained mainly flanges to company standards. Later catalogs contained flanges to national standards. Today our catalog contains flanges to international standards that were written with the help of MAIN engineers. MAIN has changed from a garage supplying a few customers in Michigan to a 48,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility supplying 1200 customers around the world from a $4 million inventory. Markets have changed, but confidence, reliability and trust are still important. On behalf of everyone at MAIN Manufacturing, I would like to thank our customers for giving us the opportunity to serve them for the last 50 years and having confidence in us. We will strive to continuously raise the bar in improvements and continue to be one of the best flange manufacturers in the world, and one of your best suppliers.
