Temper is a research and development company that uses magnetics to elicit behavior in materials and tooling to fabricate parts. Our work has been used to cut the time to manufacture parts by over one order of magnitude. Materials include thermoplastic and thermoset composites, aluminum, magnesium, titanium and intermetallic’s.

Bay Shore Steel Works (BSSW) is a full-service component manufacturer and finisher. We maintain the capability to process components from raw plate to painted weldment or assembly. Although we work in all steels and aluminium, our concentration is in armor plate fabrications for the defense industry.

We are a key supplier of armor plate components for the Stryker Assault Vehicle and the M1 Abrams tank, plus other military armored vehicles and systems.

We offer complete process engineering, fabricating, machining and finishing services from a 45,000-square-foot facility just minutes away from Lake Michigan and across the road from one of Michigan’s premiere golf resorts.
