HISTORY

New Standard, a team of 400 associates in three U.S. locations, has a history of differentiating itself within the markets and industries it has serviced. Today, we are a strategic provider for metal-based components, sub-assemblies and finished products. Our focus remains on advanced and value engineering, manufacturing technology, global procurement, and consultative selling which enables us to produce and deliver these products from design through distribution.
