Business analysts measure a firm's progress in terms of sales and profits, equipment and markets. Jagemann Stamping Company has progressed dramatically in terms of those criteria since it was founded by William P Jagemann, Sr., in 1946
"We have an exceptional group of people here at Jagemann Stamping Company," says William T. Jagemann, Jr., chairman emeritus and son of the founder. "We can go out and buy machines, but without our people, we wouldn't have a company."
From 1946 to 1975 Jagemann focused on fulfilling short-run orders manufactured on hand-fed single operation presses. Then in 1975, recognizing that booming automotive ferrule orders would soon surpass the company's capacity Jagemann Stamping installed the first of many automated transfer presses, machines that stamp circular blanks from coils of metal, then carry the blanks through progressive dies that form each part to the customer's exacting specifications.
To meet the growing demands of its ever-increasing customer base, Jagemann Stamping moved its operation to a new manufacturing facility in September of 2000. The building features a modular floor plan to accommodate the many, frequently changing functions of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.02
"We're coming full circle." explains Thomas Jagemann. "We're growing to increase our responsiveness to our customers, much as my grandfather did in the late 1940s and early 1950s. William P. Jagemann, Sr. always said, 'Do it right, or don't do it at all.' That's an axiom that served him well, served my father well, and is serving us well today. We're working diligently to ensure our continued success."
