Trade, Tariffs, and Tenacity – The Power of Solving Problems

Art of Engineering Graphic

The clock is ticking.

There’s been a lot of talk about trade and tariffs and this and that. Maybe too much talk.
If you look under the shiny surface of sound bites and white noise, you see… surprise, surprise… that reports of manufacturing’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. 

At Custom Powder Systems and Integrated Containment Systems, surrounded by the work ethic ground into the hands and hearts of middle America, we just smile, shake our heads, roll up our sleeves, and continue to ask…

“How can we help?”

History is littered with companies staring into the rearview mirror waiting wistfully for the Willis Reed-like return of the good ole’ days, and while waiting, they were hit by the trains of progress. 

It has always been this way.

Likewise, history hoists heroes onto pedestals and into business school textbooks with case studies of moves, mergers, and market share. We lionize the giants who move forward fiercely… who refuse to sink their heads in the sand and shout about falling skies, broken dreams, and the golden days and ways things used to be. 

On which side of history will we find you? What are you prepared to do?

At Custom Powder Systems and Integrated Containment Systems, we’re prepared to embrace your toughest problem with “bring it on,” your non-negotiables with “no worries,” and your apparent budget nightmares with “let’s see what we can dream up together.” 

At Custom Powder Systems and Integrated Containment Systems, we look at each aspect of each challenge through different lenses and filters until solutions unspool before us in a collaborative, connected system that will make both scientific and financial sense for you.

Contact us today and let us know the containment challenge you’re facing so we can face it—and solve it—together.

Because the show must go on. 

The clock is ticking. Let’s get to work.

History is waiting for you.
