About Us

About Bellwether

Recognized for satisfying the most challenging and precise requirements prescribed by our clients, Bellwether, Inc., based in McDonough, Georgia, specializes in parts manufacturing, tooling and fixturing. From product development to final production, our process allows you to experience a one-stop shop for your replacement parts needs or first-time creation. Our products include industrial power tool fixtures, precision extrusion dies, tooling jigs, forming dies, punches, and custom-precision machine parts.

We serve OEMs and aftermarket users—i.e., pump manufacturing companies, commercial products manufacturers, and industrial assembly operations. From large and small organizations, they also represent numerous sectors, such as aerospace, automotive supply, large manufacturing equipment, medical, military, and oil and gas.

Launched in 1974, we first established a name for ourselves when a textile machine required a highly specialized, niche replacement part for a new process. After a painstaking, two-year period, we had succeeded. By 1990, Bellwether’s innovation had become a mainstay in the American textile industry and sold in 31 countries.

From decades of taking on the most difficult-to-machine, close-tolerance, high-precision jobs, we now offer a rare set of skills that deliver on time as promised. Focused on long-term results that yield positive returns on our clients’ investments, Bellwether was the first in the textile industry to guarantee product performance and durability, and that pledge to our customers stands today.

By choice, we focus on clients who have intricate, often never-been-done requirements. Therefore, we’ve invested in the important, cutting-edge equipment and highly committed, skilled employees to accomplish the job.

If your margin for error is zero, we encourage you to consider our manufacturing capabilities.
